Tyre tart

Thinking ahead, and for the odd shows I'll be attending with Morph what do
folk use to tart up the tyres and get that bulled black look? Given the size
of the tyres I don't want to have to experiment. I've used paint on Tyre
black in the past but I think thats a bit OTT for morph. Just a nice mat
black rather than overspray olive drab would suffice.

I've polished land rover tyres with boot polish before now (mutter
mutter army mutter). makes them nice and black but don't let the kids
near-em in their nice white summer clothes, the wife'll kill you for
that one.


Regards.
Mark.

It works well and brings up a decent shine but does tend to rub off a bit.

At the bus depot we brushed ordinary synthetic black paint on bus tyres
thinned down so much with white spirit it was almost the consistency of
water, because of the overthinning it lost it's gloss and dried to a
nice clean matt black finish.

On small car tyres an effective way of cleaning and bringing back the
black look it to scrub the tyre in cellulose thinners this tends to
remove the dirty grey look and restores the colour, well almost

However you can buy ready made tyre black.
