This is ArmorAll Tire Foam



And Larry isn't off his rocker on this...their instructions state: "Avoid putting product on treads, brakes or floors.

Armorall?

Long ago I used No-Touch but I have found Formula 303 to be much better. I had no idea anyone was using Armorall anything anymore. Must be an east coast thing.

Armorall is great if you like cracks on the dash.

Cheap engine oil is the best tire shine. Wipes on easy and actually helps the tire from drying out.

I agree that tire shine left on a rotor will cause it to pulse.

I've read the threads for years on the detailing forum about the hazards of ArmorAll...

...I guess I'm the lone holdout. I've use a variety of products (waxes, tire enhancers), including ArmorAll.

I've never in 31 years of car ownership had any adverse issues with ArmorAll (or any other product). Following product instructions helps. I even used the product on my (back then) show VW for the 9 years I did the show-car circuit. Even now, as the VW sits outside in the Texas sun, paint, and seats faded, the dash, nor tires have any damage.

I wonder if some of the dash cracking claims may be due to excessive usage of ArmorAll (I've seen detailers sponge this stuff onto interior parts as if it were paint), or if the dash cracking issues were there to begin with.

I agree with this point. Probably, people look at their dull, dusty and now brittle dash that's been in the (Texas/Florida/Arizona) sun for 20 years, and say "hmmm...better put some Armorall on it". Then it cracks.
