Sun block tire protection

Does anyone have any experience with this tire protection system? I sure would appreciate your comments. This would seem easier than using tire covers.

Online reviews marvel over the tires looking great after 3 years, but they would look as good without treatment at that age. The proof would be in how well it does over 8 years.

I will not trust any such fluids without proof, but my tires covers HAVE provided proof to me. And they are no trouble at all compared to regularly treating them in 2 steps IMHO.

I wash mine in the washing machine on Gentle cycle, 3 times so far with nothing happening to the covers except they come clean. I dry them outside on the line.

303 Aerospace protectant is the ideal product. Been used
for decades in boating, airplanes, automobiles, and for RVs.

303ģ Products are the leading line of premium protectants and cleaners on the market today

I've used it for over 25 years, follow the directions, it works !

A gent on the CC Yahoo User Group used this sun blocker. Was pleased with how it went on, and was easy to keep clean with normal washings. For sure blocks the UV. He had it on three sets of tires.

I will try it on my next set of tires. Now I use Zaino Tire Care, or if I'm out of that, 303.

I like and use tire covers too, when parked. Sunblock is a one time effort to put on - then forget. So I think it's the easiest tire protection to use.

Sunblock, or UV protectant applied as needed - also protect while driving.

I think tire covers, tire blocks as in Sunblock, and UV protectant are all important. These torso we have are $$!

Best,
Smitty

I treat my tires with Aerospace 303, but anytime we're parked for more than a few days, I put the tire covers on.

The PO ordered them with the rig. They have Monaco on them. They have a rope edge that slides in a channel on the edge of the wheel well. Also, the bottom edge can be folded up underneath and velcroed so it totally covers without swinging in the wind. I really love them!

They take about 1 minute per axel to put on.

There was a company I saw online last year that made them but I cannot find them.

I used Sun Block on my previous MH's and the current one. Works great and really gives the tires that brand new, or better, look. It's been a year or two since I last did mine so it's about time to do them again. Soap and a tire brush cleans them up pretty easily.
