    It has been a few years since the revelation that AA is not good for the material it is used on but still, it sells. I wonder how many users put it on stuff they are going to sell, no worries about long-time effects?

    My beef with it is that it attracts dust. A couple of weeks after the last time the car wash used Armor All on my Jeep, I was wiping dust bunnies off the dash. Here we are a few months later and the dust bunnies are back.

    If you are not putting any wear on the sidewalls you are just not trying hard enough.:eek:
    If you were trying that hard you would never want AA near the tires.o_O

    I noticed years ago that when applied in the heat, it kind of smelled like vomit, so I stopped using it.

    Finally, someone (you) saw through my ruse. :D

    AA is the last thing one should put on motorcycle tires. That would be asking for an accident unless it's a three wheeler.

    Get some of this from Amazon: it is fantastic at bringing back everything.

    Or if you have Leather seats and trim use this stuff - it works and works well.

    And after you are done cleaning - apply this to all plastics - Tires and anywhere else you
    might use Armour All.

    Does this leave a silicone enhanced slippery film or does the natural texture remain, just cleaner?

    dont use windex to remove it, the ammonia can really mess with the color on your interior plastics. in fact just throw away all your windex. it destroys everything but glass, and there is better glass cleaner out there. it, and armor-all for that matter, likely exist from name recognition at this point. there is such better stuff out there.

    anyone using armor all on their tires should realize that it also discolors rubber and will, if you stop using it, leave a tint of brown on your tires. use a tire specific formula like black magic.
