    Cleaning and dressing Off-Road tires is different than any other type of tire. The tires are big....REALLY BIG. They have alot of cracks, tread, and off areas that make it difficult to get the dressing into. Plus, regular applicator pads are too small to actually cover the entire tire.

    This is the method I use to dress BIG tires. I made this video using a 2014 SVT Raptor to show you have to get the best look on the tires.

    Enjoy the video!!

    Buy the VRP, cut it 1:1 and you have Silk Shine.
