I am hearing more and more to not use simple green.
I highly recommend using Track Tac (the Blue tire wash)
Simply apply product, wipe with rag, rinse with water. It works great.
Never said it has an advantage, Just pointing out it's not a disadvantage and just as good in my book as a more expensive products that get pushed, I used to use cheap shampoo worked fine, switched to simple green because I find it easier for me.What advantage does simple green have over dawn and water?
So if its pulling the prep to the surface that is taking the prep from deep down and wicking it up.... Whats replacing the prep from deep in the tire that gets brought to the surface? Not taking sides here just asking is allIf you have a no prep rule simple green during a wash cycle sure helps the tire feel new again. When we raced big cars I sprayed them with simple green then power washed them and like others have described it helps them get that grippy feel again. I don't believe for a second it pulls all the prep work out of a tire but I believe it helps bring that prep to the surface. Important part is to always rinse all the soap off be it simple green, dawn or whatever your favorite concoction may be.
I don't believe its pulling that MUCH to the surface just enough to make it feel grippy again. Its not that concentrated of a degreaser like you would spray in an oven. And sometimes on these kart tires after I wash them with just water they feel grippy similar to how they did before a run. I agree with racing promotor most are trying to sell you something. To each his own if you want to spend money on tire wash plenty of folks to sell it to you. I've got other places to spend my dolhairsSo if its pulling the prep to the surface that is taking the prep from deep down and wicking it up....
