Common Questions:

  • What is Outside Tire Paint and why is it used?

    An outside tire paint is a coating applied to the outside of each tire to ensure any air trapped between the tire surface and the mold surface can escape, this helps assure good rubber flow during the molding process. These paints also help to provide a uniform external tire appearance.
