303 Dressing & the 'inside' rear tire

Was just looking up tire dressings and silicone content or lack of etc. when I suddenly thought, 'what about the inside tire on the drive axle?' How many people treat this tire as well as those a little more easy to get to? Or even just the inner side of the other tires? Or am I missing the point?

I never did the inside duals. I was going for looks and uv protection on the other four .

The inside duals don't need protection from the sun.

Agreed...they don't need it.

I understand that the tires are imbibed with UV inhibitors and tire chord lubricants that are activated when the tire is put into service, in other words, when the tire is rolling on the road.

When our tires sit for greatly extended lengths of time, they are not being protected by these UV inhibitors and lubricants, so their lifespan is effectively reduced.

The single best thing we can do for our tires is regularly put them into service. This keeps the rubber and the chords in the tires properly conditioned, and prevents them from becoming dried out or rotting out.

I don't believe that putting chemicals on the outside of the tires does much of anything for the tire, other than making them look better.

Besides, we're not supposed to keep our tires long enough to witness any weathering.

In the past, I've read where you should be careful with tire dressings because some do not react well the tire compounds. The chosen 303 is a good one...go ahead and make 'em pretty. 'Age' will probably determine replacement long before UV or ozone will.

Sounds like a plan!
