Prior to starting the project I cleaned one tire really well with degreaser and soapy water. The other 3 tires were just wiped off and colored. After the first session the 3 wiped tires were starting to flake off pretty good. The one properly cleaned tire was still going strong. I'm ok with the experiment because I had plans to flip the tires prior to my next track event. So if you want your work to last make sure the really clean the tires prior painting................Phil
