Infiniti QX: Tire dressing - Cleaning exterior - Appearance and care - Infiniti QX Owner's ManualInfiniti QX: Tire dressing

INFINITI does not recommend the use of tire dressings. Tire manufacturers apply a coating to the tires to help reduce discoloration of the rubber. If a tire dressing is applied to the tires, it may react with the coating and form a compound. This compound may come off the tire while driving and stain the vehicle paint. If you choose to use a tire dressing, take the following precautions:
► Use a water-based tire dressing. The coating on the tire dissolves more easily with an oil-based tire dressing.
► Apply a light coat of tire dressing to help prevent it from entering the tire tread/grooves (where it would be difficult to remove).
► Wipe off excess tire dressing using a dry towel. Make sure the tire dressing is completely removed from the tire tread/grooves.
► Allow the tire dressing to dry as recommended by tire dressing manufacturer.
