You should be able to find it at any Walmart or grocery store as well. If you really like it and have a Sams, Costco, or BJ's membership you can buy it by the gallon jug.

Be careful of Goo Gone or Goof Off. Both are 100% Xylene and will turn rubber into jelly.

Apply, let sit for no more than 30 seconds and wipe off any residue.

Goof Off is very harsh and I wouldn't recommend you use this product at all.

Goo Gone on the other hand has never given me any problems and works great for removing stickers from glass, plates, etc.... and does a great job of removing the black scuff marks from my sedan body too. Cleans rubber tires as good as brake cleaner without the nasty affects.

You may want to read up on what you are playing with. You would do yourself a favor and buy a pair of chemically resistant gloves.

Please do not attempt to bottle/sell it without labelling the ingredients on such product so we as consumers may know what we are dealing with.

lol that's sweet man. I have a bag of sorex, rp, and some other type of racing tires and they were all dry. I woke them up with wd-40!



if anyone has some dry tires that have sat up put two pairs in a shopping bag and pray dw-40 on em. make sure there fully coated. then squeez ALL the air out then tie it up tight. leave over then wipe off all the resdue the the tire is ready for some sauce. I still have to buy that simple green stuff for when I'm at the track


yay! lol
