Hey guys, James here with Detailed Image. So you have just finished up your wash process, it’s all said and done, let’s talk about how to properly apply tire dressing. So first up, you want to grab a tar remover and you want to spray the tar remover directly onto a general purpose microfiber towel and you want to work that tire with a decent amount of pressure. What that’s going to do, is pull off dirt, grime, and browning and perfectly prepare the tire for the tire dressing. Up next, the fun part. You want to take a tire dressing and you want to apply two kind of thin lines right on a DI tire applicator pad and then, you want to work that tire dressing in both directions. You want to get into all the little nooks and crannies, inside those letters and you want to get a nice even coverage. Now you want to let that tire dressing sit for about 10 minutes. After that point, you want to grab a clean microfiber towel and you want to run over that tire with that towel. What that’s going to do, is create a satin finish and also prevent sling.
