Dry Tyre Walls
« on: November 29, 2019, 11:22 PM »
I read part of a thread on here a while ago about using Vaseline to rehydrate and soften skinwall tyres. My question is, has anybody tried doing the same to gumwall tyres by using silicone spray?? Itís supposed to restore pliability, rehydrate and prevent the rubber drying out again. Apparently you generously spray the rubber you wish to treat and seal in a bag for a few days. Iíve got a pair of faded 80ís golden boy tyres (I donít want the colour back, done then pink stuff trick on another pair) I want to use on a fairly honest survivor bike Iíve bought with new looking tyres. There are no cracks yet but the walls feel hard/slightly crusty to the touch. The tread area and inner tyre seem ok though. So has anybody done this with good or bad results ??? Let me know please guys. Thanks.
