One of the main attributes we relate to a freshly detailed vehicle is tire dressing. Whether Satin and a rich black color, or the more glossy, wet look, it’s the finishing touch once your entire wash process is over. Your paint stays clean, beads water like crazy, and your windows stay fresh, but your tires are the first to fall off the wagon on a clean vehicle! Most tire shines are packed with silicone that provide a pleasant appearance at first, but wear away with just a few trips under even the most perfect conditions. Adam’s Tire Armor, a semi-permanent, acrylic layer that is here to stay, literally. Hit speed bumps, go off-road, run through the mud… Dressed tires are ready to rally now, thank to Tire Armor.
You’re probably thinking, “Acrylic… that sounds like paint!” and you’re not entirely wrong. Adam’s Tire Armor has successfully combined durability with functionality. Tire Armor creates an extremely flexible and elastic clear coat that not only adheres specifically to rubber, but lets your tire live like a tire everyday. When developing this product, we went through dozens of formulas ensuring the proper sheen was achievable with ease for our customers and incorporated our COAT technology for this reason! COAT stands for Customized Optional Acrylic Technology, meaning you can have that same satin finish from VRT OR the glossy appearance from Tire Shine. Just apply an additional coat after your introductory layer has been dry for about 15 minutes. Now, there are thousands of different tires out there, both new and old, so the amount of coats that works for one tire might not be the same as a fresh set from the tire shop— Applying a thorough base layer is key!
With any coating or protective layer, you want to make sure it’s as clean as possible before applying. Some tires will require 5 rounds of cleaning, some will require only 2! The way to ensure you’ve done a thorough job is when Tire & Rubber Cleaner suds up and looks white in appearance, rather than brown or orange! Once cleaned, you’ll want to ensure its completely dry in the tread block and around the bead of the wheel— Excess water builds up in the bead of the wheel, making it slowly drip out after washing!
Now for the application— Ensuring a thorough application of this product is key. Start by dispensing the product over the surface area of the tire, tread block, and sidewall lettering. Once applied, use a Microfiber Applicator or VRT Block to work the chemical into the tire. For larger tread blocks, we recommend either a trim and lug brush or interior brush to paint the chemical into the tread blocks peaks and valleys! Thorough application is key as this product builds a super thin layer of acrylic. If there is a high or low spot, it will be the first to go and cause a “skin peel” and ultimately wear away faster!
Adam’s Tire Armor is dry to the touch in 5-7 minutes, but you’ll want to wait about 10-15 minutes before applying additional coats for increased gloss! Once that’s all done, you can drive off into the sunset and enjoy no-sling, dressed tires wherever you go.
