    I'll take scruffy shoes over walking around in patent leather. To me it looks phony, new tires don't look like that. Just clean them good with a brush and they look fine, IMHO. Like I said, I had to deal with that stuff when I was still working. Pulling a tire off a car with that crap is a mess. You better wear gloves and not let it touch your clothing.

    I used to detail the hell out of my previous car (Vette). Wash, clay bar, polish, sealer, etc. Took me forever because I did it without power tools. Now with my current cars, I wash, dry, wax. But I do get every nook and cranny, including door, hood, trunk jambs. I also wipe down everything in the engine compartment. The interior gets a vacuum and all the leather gets conditioner (once a month). It takes me hours, and I'm getting to old for this!!

I'm thinking of using a little petroleum jelly on the tires...what do you think about that.....any drawbacks i'm not aware of?? I unlike one of t he other posters @Kodiak...like tire shine but I, like that other poster, do not like what it does to my driveway, the tires, the mess.
    I use this on my tires and plastic trim, it cleans and protects without leaving a gooey mess on the tire.
