Dirtz Tire Mounting cleaner

Dirtz Tire Mounting cleaner

New from X-Factory, under the Brian Kinwald Dirtz Dialed Partz label, comes this tire mounting cleaner. Designed to take the mold release off the tires, as well as grease off the wheels it evaporates quickly meaning you will spend less time doing tire prep. Brian, who discovered this special blend, had the following to say.

U.S. tires are various compounds of rubber and they all have mold release on them which absolutely must be removed. The glue won’t stick properly to either the tire or the wheel if you don’t clean both   I’ve tried everything you can imagine to clean tires, from motor spray to 91% alcohol. Until now, nothing really worked. I love this stuff, and you will too!
