swvision Posted January 21, 2017 Share Posted January 21, 2017 I just applied Meguiar's High Gloss tire shine to the inside portion of the tires where the tire doesnt actually make contact with the road in hopes that it will wick away water better and give me more traction on wet roads. I'll be testing it soon and report back. update: Acceleration improved 15-25% even on dry asphalt better traction and acceleration on wet surfaces. The reason I think there was a better improvement overall is probably because of wind resistance between the tire cracks. So if the portion that doesn't actually touch the ground inside the surface of the tire is smooth, then it stands to reason that the air will pass over it faster making the wheel spin with less resistance. If someone else can try this, please let me know if you feel a difference in acceleration or traction on wet or dry ground. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
