HELP HELP HELP!! Put wrong tire stuff on tires, now i cant ride!

Hey all,

I was doing my weekly complete clean of my bike, and well i wasnt paying attention to which bottle of tire cleaner i grabbed and noticed, after i applied it, that it was Armor All Extreme Tire Shine for my car, not my normal cleaner!!!

I need help ASAP on how to remove this off of my tires, fortunately I noticed this before heading off onto the road! I have tried soap and water already and thats not working at all, they are as slippery as possible!

Any help would be appreciated!

try Simple green or at worst Purple Power (but make sure it's wet and don't leave it on long, also wear gloves unless you need a chemical peel)

It's better to look like a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

i'd use any ammonia based cleaner; simple green, windex, 409, all work well on cutting grease/wax type of residue. I'd stay away from petroleum base cleaners since they will eat up the rubber compound on your tire and will screw up their curing process from every riding session.

and stop using tire dressing (any type) period!!!

a few years back, Pirelli sent a few cats to the company that i used to work at for some technical training. One of the major problems that they had was their P-Zero line up had side wall cracking problems and they were getting calls left & right on; they finally figure it out...guess due to what you're right.... tire dressing, petroleum based one specifically.... so stay away from it!! keep them ugly and they'll last longer...

a few seconds of burnout also do the trix

I would try all of the above, then ride with extreme caution for a while. I don't understand why people put slippery stuff on any tire.
