Love that stuff; but I just dont know WHEN during the detailing process to wet the tires...

At the beginning = nothing remains on the tire after a wash.
At the end = you have to wipe your wheels and fenders because of the overspray.

When was that sale? I could use some spare bottles!

The sale has since expired but I have a neat little trick to tell you how I apply the spray and it saves on wasteful overspray as well. Get one of those plastic margarine or sour cream containers and pump about 15 sprays of that stuff into the container (per tire). Take a nice fine 2" or 2-1/2" paint brush and gently brush it on. You have better control, less running and zero overspray. It's a bit more work but I don't mind when it comes to stuff like that. It gets me outside. Results are the same too.

I find the same thing, I spray the tire detailer on this and wipe it on the tire, nothing gets on the rims:

This is what I'm currently using. Works really well, more so than the sprays. It's not on sale right now, but something to look for in flyers etc.

I've been using a really old Black Magic tire wetter because I had it lying around. It's actually one of the best I've ever used. Will buy again.

Bought me one bottle of Castrol oil European on sale $ 7.49 (for top up) and torque wrench 1/2" drive for $ 64.99 (50% off). Now ready for winter. Got the winter tires and rims last winter. Now can torque the nuts properly.

As per this post from RFD
Motomaster Aluminum Racing Jack $99.99
http://forums.redflagdeals.com/ct-mo...-99-a-1091956/

I am really considering this, I have the xi and my car isn't lowered yet I still have to drive on a wood to raise the car about 1-2" so just my jack fits, I have the motomaster 2ton jack, it does its job I have had it for 6 yrs.

That jack is alright but not great. It feels weak and it really doesn't raise the car that much. The jack feels like it struggles to lift the car.

The plus side is that it is light and can be moved around no problem. That being said, I opted to get the more heavier duty jack and love it.

Well my current jack is heavy duty and it still works very well no complains. Its just annoying I need to use planks to rise the car a bit. Not to mention I am moving to a condo next year and no garage anymore maybe I'll get it next year

The CT Certified 3 ton jack is freakishly heavy but can reach the side and rear jack points no problem. Central jack point in the front requires wood planks.
