    We all know you cant put the super slicky shiny tire stuff on a bike tire so no need to cover that, but what do you use to make your tires look fresh and clean whilst keeping them safe and road worthy?

    I rarely ever wash my bike, I just keep it clean after every ride. I dont clean my tires. I keep the aluminum polish off the rubber.

    Yup, use it every few months. Just spray it on a microfibre and wipe, rather than spraying it on the tire. Works good nice black tire and now idiotic shine. I will do a couple before and after pics..

    :agree: I don't do the tires very often, by the time I get out of my neighbourhood they need to be done again. Just from the ride today I've got a buildup of sand/dust everywhere, riding home in a damn dust storm, quite windy here today..

    Just part of cleaning the dogs up and keeping them looking new. Do what you feel is best. And I like a clean bike that makes me feel the best when riding! I'm a picky person and like my things to look just so. Again I appreciate the tip and I will put it to good use!

    Especially with all those pipes and dirt covering them in your neighborhood, what are they for anyway?
