I've looked for it at lowes and walmart and I can't find it. Maybe WD-40 would work. Might give it a try.

PB Blaster is usually found at a NAPA or other Auto Parts store. Not so much at Wallyworld.

It doesn't in the automotive world..They are different chemicals so I would say they wouldn't work the same..I've never tried either on tires though.. I use Simple Green straight.

wd40 will not work the same. The pb blaster is a much better penatrent for the rubber. You spray pb on a Styrofoam cup and it will dissolve in just a few secs. The whole idea of softening rubber is to swell it, in turn it flexes more. I have tried a few different blends and this seems to be a happy medium for me for tire wear and performance. If you want it "hotter" go to 2 oz of pb. But tire wear will suffer; you have been warned! lol However they sure are awesome for a bit!
