My Perfect Tire Cleaner

Whenever someone says perfect anything, I cringe. There is no such thing as a perfect detailing product.

However, this video shows a tire cleaner that is perfect for me. It is both cheap and very very effective.

Video and details in link, hope you enjoy!

For the record Roshan my wife hates you right now lol. Every time you come out with a video of a product, I have to purchase it! Good thing we are on opposite ends of the U.S.

Seriously though if this stuff cleans just as good as Adams APC, then I am sold. I am kind of hooked on Adams APC smell though which I think they do purposely as a kind of drug to keep you in their army lol.

I assume this is just as bad for plasti dip as the Adams APC was? Usually I am careful as to not over spray the tires where the APC drips onto the plasti dip.

Hahaha that's too funny! At least this time it isn't a $150 wax like BlackICE!

This stuff smells pretty good too, not Adam's good, but good nonetheless.

I would be careful of plastidip, yes. If you used Adam's APC fine, then you should do the same procedure with this.

I checked with a local Auto Zone and they have never heard of this stuff. Did any of you buy the stuff @ a chain store like Walmart? If not, where did you find the stuff?

It's from Meguiar's Detailers Line. The only place local that would have it are body shops.

Otherwise, http://www.autogeek.net/mg10101.html

Thanks, it's something someone told me when I first started making videos and when you think about it, it's so true. Why would you not do it this way once you get the reason behind it.

Thanks Nolann! I think you will like it and if you have Adam's foaming nozzle, I think you will REALLY enjoy it!

Alright Roshan. Just ordered a gallon of D101 since I used the last of my Adam's APC today. I'm gonna put it in my Griot's Rubber cleaner bottle that has the foaming sprayer.

Let us know your feedback, honestly I can't imagine you not being ecstatic.

I was the first time I used it!

Yeah but not their fault. They shipped it quickly, FedEx keeps changing their mind now.

I HATE FedEx. UPS never gives me problems.
