When I bought my latest 64 Eldo, the tires were covered with a paint like substains? After I cleaned the wheels and the tires a few time the coating is starting to diminish. Does anyone have a good cure for keeping the tires fresh and new looking also how to prevent dry rotting the tires?

Do not use armor all

Best to drive the car that helps.

Good info here

Before products like Armoral ,i use to use a black tire paint ,made just for that purpose ,that made the tires look clean and fresh
That might be what you may be looking at
It would wear off after awhile and fade out kind of evenly

Just for looks ,no UV protection ,i know of

I use spray nine. I spray the tires down and give them a scrub with a brush and pressure wash them off. I do it on all my cars and truck at the car wsh. they turn out black like new.


 I also use spray nine to clean them periodically during the season. Every fall just before I put it away for the winter I rub down the black side wall both inner and outer with Rubber Re-new

from MG Chemicals can be found at electronic supply places. Also works well to preserve weatherstrips and door jamb boots. My door jamb boots are perfect and 54 years old and I attribute them lasting this long to the Rubber Renew

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

Posted by Les Eastling on February 27, 2020 at 10:33am 1 Comment

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
