As difficult it is to find OEM parts on a low volume, thirty year old import I agree with Ryantzer, most parts you find from local auto parts store are cheaply made junk from China. If anyone is looking for a great tire shine product I just purchased Dura coatings Dura dressing tire kit. The final results came out excellent. The tires look wet but are 100% dry. You can rub your hand on it after it completely dries and you get no sling from other “armor all”or silicone products. The cleaning process will take you well over an hour to clean the tires before you can apply the final product but I’ll tell you it’s worth it. Check out YouTube videos if interested. I’ll post a pic of my finished tire. I have no relationship to this company but if you like clean tires this is a must
lol I see you’re rocking the Douglas Walmart tires as well (I’ll occasionally get crap from tire techs saying because my car is an Infiniti, I need tiger paws or some other $100/tire set). But I did invest in some rear snow tires earlier this year. All seasons are scary in a RWD in heavy snow lol.
That said, that’s likely a paint tire dressing. Looks good. I tried something similar but wasn’t too Thrilled. I still prefer Meguires hot shine. It’s relatively cheap and shine lasts a good while when it’s not raining. I’ll spend an hour brushing the brake dust off my rims but I just want a spray and go tire shine lol (and tbh I’m so over the 97-98 rims and can’t decide on rim upgrade or paint job, b/c it’s always a b**** to go spoke by spoke scrubbing the brake dust off).
That said: took the Q for a spin today. Temperature 99 degrees. High humidity. Highway driving. A/C on 70. After coming off highway and stopping at a couple traffic lights, then pulling into a parking lot (rarely does it while driving, but has crept up if I’m driving 105 mph and it’s 90 degrees out) temp gauge started going up. Genuine Nissan thermostat installed. Idk what the f*** is going on. It’s not overheating or blowing hoses, but I have to watch it and either turn off a/c or sift into neutral at long lights. Already replaced radiator and the 2 caps. Water pump replaced with a gates awhile ago, and condenser fans are spinning fine even after replacing a suspected one. I’ll check coolant again, might be a little low. Stop leak from a couple summers ago permanently “gunked” my system, so I often have to do a routine cleaning of the reservoir tank.
Anyway, not to derail this thread. Just sharing lol.
