22" SRT8 Reps are here!!!
 
Came home today and had a notification from Fedex on my front door. Went to the front office and picked all 4 wheels up!! I wanted to go straight to the shop and have them mounted and balanced, but it will have to wait until Saturday morning.

In the meantime I took them out of the box to make sure all was fine during shipping. While they were out I put a coat of NXT Tech 2.0 wax on them. I figured this would be a good opportunity to do so before they were on the truck.

I will post pics Saturday after they are installed. One question... I really want to clean up the sidewalls on my tires before these are installed. I used a tire shine on them once and since then it has left a black tar look and buildup on the tire itself. Are there any good tire cleaners that anybody can recommend?? I wanna get them cleaned up tomorrow so it would have to be something that can be picked up local. I've tried simple green and a firm bristle brush but it didn't do a damn thing. Any suggestions???

Ok cool ill go give that a try! Thanks Scott.

Rob I totally forgot about doing that. I usually just use the soap and rinse and those places. If that stuff doesn't work ill swing it by the quarter wash!

I kind just jumped on the bandwagon. No idea how good these tires truly are.

Hope they are a good tire!

You went with gloss black?
