Thumbs up Tire Dressing

I started painting dubbin on my tires a few years ago?
Shiny tires look ok on cars but not my Trucks or Bikes, Dubbin makes the rubbers on my bike look better than new.
Dubbin, if you don't know, is a leather care product. Good for saddles, bridals, etc.
I like the way dubbin works on rubber. It seems to leave a matt/flat/dry finish.
It makes rubber look new, maybe better than new...IMO

CAUTION: never use 'Armor All' on rubber or plastic trim

with the down time I have for Winter I take stuff off my Bikes and make repairs and clean things up
heres how it looks on tires

tire washed and the Dubbin



clear Dubbin applied the Sun helps to set it in



heres the before washed tire



heres the finished product with the letters painted white

the reason I use this on the Bike Tires is I have had a scary experience on a tight turn with other dressings
kinda slick

I just threw that one in for the pic
I only use the natural on tires, as the black does not look as good on the finished product it leaves streaks

Looks real good, how is it for moisture? with it being for leather I wouldn't imagine it would dry things out at all.
