I used it just on the tread with a paint roller.
I believe there are instructions there somewhere, I didn't read it all just looked up the site.
It took me about 30 minutes to dredge up the name of the stuff from memory.
It works very well for older, slightly or severely hardened drag slick or drag radial tires.


One of my friends here bought a set of used drag slicks that were about 10 years old.
They were so hard as to be unusable, but a few applications of this stuff made a world of difference.
The tires you just bought may be ok and not need it.
I put it out there JIC you do.


P.S. Since yours are used please inspect them closely. We don't want you to have a catastrophic failure at speed.

I appreciate it. I will prolly get that stuff and use it. I read the instructions but it didn't say were to roll it on at lol if just treads or whole tire. Seems like some good stuff to have even if you don't absolutely need it. And thanks for watching my back on that

I think you will find it very beneficial and maybe the instructions that come with it give you a better idea of its use, but I just used it on the tread myself.


P.S. No problem buddy, we have to look out for each other.

That's great, you did get a good deal.


Check around and see if you can find some of those old aluminum spare tire rims for a set of skinnies up front. They work great for that purpose and will take some weight off the front.
Polished up a bit they don't look to bad either.
