Tire Penz Application

TIRE PENZ INSTRUCTIONS | APPLICATION PROCESS | TIPS & TRICKS

HOW TO PAINT TIRE SIDEWALL WITH TIRE PENZ:

“If the product is not applied correctly, the product will not perform well. Primer is no longer needed.

 HOW TO APPLY TIRE PENZ:

1.       Remove grease, tire shine and dirt (The best way to clean a tire is to scrub it with soap and water then rinse.  Remove any previously applied tire shine.  You may use a degreaser as well but make sure no residue is left on the tire.  After rinsing and drying you may want to use rubbing alcohol to ensure the tire is clean.  For the product to work, the tire needs to be absolutely clean.  Tire Penz cannot be applied over tire shine.)

2.       Scuff tire using wire brush (Do not gouge the tire with the wire brush but lightly scuff up where the paint will be applied.  This allows the paint to better grab hold of the tire.)

3.       Shake pen well (The paint will separate if it has sat for any period of time.  Shaking the pen mixes the product properly for best performance.)

4.       Lightly depress pen tip to begin paint flow (Excessive force on the pen tip will damage it.  Finesse is everything when applying the product properly.)

5.       Apply thin coat(s) & allow 12 hours to dry (Applying heavy coats will cause the paint to dry at different rates, become rigid and chip off.  Multiple thin coats will result in the best appearance and longevity.  Again, finesse is everything when applying the product properly.  You may apply tire shine after Tire Penz has properly dried.)

6.       Apply a small amount of Reflect powder while paint is still wet. (If using Reflect Powder.  A small amount goes a long way.)

7.       Touch up as needed.  (Tire Penz does not guarantee the product if the tire is rubbed against a road curb or rock.  Abrading the tire with sand, dirt or other abrasive will result in diminished performance.)

 

We have years of daily use experience that proves, when properly applied, Tire Penz is extremely durable and still maintains its vibrancy.“

PRO TIPS & TOUCHUPS:

- For touchups, first use the wire brush to gently scuff surface of existing paint. DO NOT REMOVE EXISTING PAINT. This helps remove any excess debris that might have been picked up on the road, but still leaves your base coat. Then you can apply your touchup coat over existing paint.

- Brand new tires have a coating on them that will need to be removed using a scour pad or the wire brush (included with Tire Penz REFLECT kit). You will need to give them a good scrub before using.

Thin, even coats will last the longest.

- If you let the paint dry on your pen tip, don’t worry, we’ve included an extra in every Tire Penz and Tire Penz REFLECT kit.

 HOW TO USE TIRE PENZ REFLECT KIT FOR TIRE SIDEWALL:

  1. Clean any debris or dirt from the tire surface using the included wire brush. You may also consider using a little rubbing alcohol to ensure the surface is prepped and ready.

  2. Remove Tire Penz Paint Pen from packaging. SHAKE WELL. Remove cap and depress pen tip a couple time on a clean, flat surface (we use a piece of cardboard).

  3. Paint one letter at a time. You will need to apply RELFECT to wet paint.

  4. Remove red cap from REFLECT applicator. Hold applicator about 6 inches above the lettering and downwards at a 45 degree angle, and squeeze very gently. You may consider testing the flow of REFLECT before applying directly to paint.

  5. Repeat the above steps for each additional area you wish to paint.

  6. Allow 8-10 hours to dry before hittin’ the road!

- Thin, even coats will last the longest. This goes for applying REFLECT too. If you apply too much REFLECT, it makes the paint brittle and can crack as your tire flexes.

- If you let the paint dry on your pen tip, don’t worry, we’ve included an extra in every Tire Penz and Tire Penz REFLECT Kit.

 HOW TO PAINT TREAD GROOVES USING TIRE PENZ: 

  1. Clean any debris or dirt from the tire surface using the included wire brush. You may also consider using a little rubbing alcohol to ensure the surface is prepped and ready.

  2. Remove Tire Penz Paint Pen from packaging. SHAKE WELL. Remove cap and depress pen tip a couple time on a clean, flat surface (we use a piece of cardboard).

  3. Apply thin coat to bottom of tread groove ONLY. DO NOT PAINT ENTIRE GROOVE. If you do happen to paint high on the groove in some places, that’s OK. It’s very important that you only apply a single stripe of paint to the bottom of the groove.

  4. Pump pen tip on flat surface to continue painting. DO NOT PUMP PAINT PEN ON TIRE SURFACE.

  5. When you’re satisfied with the coating on the first groove, continue on to next by repeating steps 2-4.

  6. Allow 8-10 hours to dry before hittin’ the road!
