Sticky kicks roja will soften up medium tires for sure.... And sticky kicks doesn't hurt your foams and it smells better than brake cleaner and diesel fuel lol

Acetone softens tires I did a little test at work when I was trying to get some tires off of a set a rims. It really did soften the tires! One day I may try a very light coat of acetone on the very ends of the nubs and see if it will work in the real world

If you work at a large office just ask the printer repair guy for a bottle rubber regenerator, they use it to fix up all the rubber rolls inside a printer. I know because with my job I do repair computers, printers and other IT stuff

Simple Green has oil in it? Why would they put oil in a cleaner? Im calling BS on that one. Ive been using the stuff for years and never once has there been anything oily about it.

I remember reading somewhere on this forum Simple Green eats metal. I dont believe that either. Why are there so many rumors about this stuff? It seems to me like great stuff I use it to clean everything from my RC car to my laundry and Ive seen zero evidence of either of these rumors.

While Im on the subject of cleaners does anyone know whats in the air filter cleaner that Kalgaurd sells. Ive found that stuff to be incredible when it comes to cleaning stains but Im scared to do too much with it because I have no idea whats in it. I do know we have an engine degreaser here at work that seems to be really similar in smell and how it reacts with water.
