BEFORE & AFTER
Extreme Wheel & Tire Makeover
This Ford F150 belongs to a buddy of mine and his truck was in dire need of a complete detail. I'm not sure, but these may be the most neglected wheels and tire's I've ever brought back from the dead.
Here's the truck...
Here's what the wheels and tires look like...
This is what is called:
Baked-on Brake Dust & Road Film
New formula SONAX Wheel Cleaner Plus
My friend Rob McCrary sent me the new formula to test out. At the time the new bottle wasn't available. The new bottle is a clear purple color.
Wheel and tire cleaning is called "Butt Time". Obviously because you have to sit on your butt to do the work.
Now look at the wheel!
While the SONAX wheel cleaner continues to do it's thing I machine scrub the tires.
Every time I share this in a class people dig it.
Here's the tire machine scrubbed and the wheel has been scrubbed using the Wheel Woolies Boar's Hair Wheel Brush - my personal favorite wheel brush as well as interior and engine detailing brush.
Next, time to blast with some water to reveal the results...
HUGE FREAKING DIFFERENCE!
PBL Tire Clear Coat
Later, after washing the rest of the wheels and tires and then washing and drying the truck, it's time to do something with these tires.
In these pictures I've applied the PBL Tire Clear Coat to the majority of the tire but left a section bare for dramatic effect.
The cool thing about tire coatings besides the look and how long they last...
They are dry to the touch! No greasy, slimy mess...
Here's the same truck after full paint correction plus finishing all the tires....
Now this is respectable...
