Don't ArmorAll your tires! Truth or Fiction?

So the story goes... a guy ArmorAll's his tires when hops on and applies the brakes at the first curve and opps down he goes!

Just AmorAll the side wall, not the tread. You don't ArmorAll the tread on your car tires do you?

best rule would be don't get that sliperry stuff anywhere near a motorcycle's tires... to try to apply it to only the sidewall is to invite disaster

Apply to small sponge, then use sponge to apply tire dressing to itty bitty sidewall. This way you will not get tire dressing on your rims or the tread. I hate ArmorAll by the way, I prefer Meguiars Natural Shine!

Don't use ArmorAll on anything unless you do it regularly and forever

I agree NO AA on motorcycle tires. Even if you do the side walls it will spin out to the tire thread and contact patch .

I've been told (and agree with ) don't do the sidewalls either. It gets spun out past the sidewalls onto the tire tread.

Keep all tire treatements away from motorcycle tires.

a good comparision would be to Armor-All the bottom of your shoes and see how easy it is to walk...IMHO Lemon Pledge is the best treatment for sidewalls....
and always spray on a rag/sponge first because you don't want to get any overspray on your brake rotor......

Some of us use 90% or more of our tires when we go through a turn, and any little bit of Armor-All that has spun out past the side wall (and it will) is going to put you on your ass.
