you dont need to tape the tire if you immediately wipe it off with laquer thinner after spraying...

I have a question about that. Wouldn't the petroleum based oil break down the rubber? I have sprayed silicon on tires before but only because I was told that it doesn't break down the rubber.

OK, but it's not going to hurt the rubber, right? What about the oil?

I personally hate silicone for tires..it collects dust,turns yellowish and then cracks...back in the 80' we used it before cruising ..easiest way to make 40's and 44's look good.
Nowadays I use black magic...and will be getting covers for the bus tires since uv is the worst thing for tires and drying them out

We may have gone a bit off topic but------ If you want fisheyes in your paint, the only thing better than Armoral is WD40 or silicone bathtub calk
