That happens to my driveway all the time, but I use a water based tire dressing, so within a few weeks it's gone.

You could try to spray some degreaser (Simple Green for example) and scrubb it. It will go away the same way that it goes away on your tires. Don't worry too much about it.

Yeah it has been about 3 weeks so we will try the simple green idea lol He said, if it stains the driveway he will be pissed. 3 weeks later and it's still there lol I use Stoners tire dressing and never have this issue, but I will give simple green a try and see what happens. Thanks for the heads up, I definitely never would of even thought of that.

Let it sit on there for a week, it should absorb up.

Homeowners who are anal about their driveways crack me up. For heaven's sake people... you work on your car in it, it is going to get dirty at some point.

Haha, I always pull my car onto the street and do it there to avoid the marks.

If I do it in the driveway I just spray some water around the tire from the hose first. The overspray seems to be diluted enough that when it dries it doesn't show. Just a tip for ya next time.

Yea the driveway is supposed to be dirty but there is a big difference between a grease stain, some mud and dirt, and 4 perfect crescent moons of shine in a retangular shape on the driveway. It screams out to ya haha.

....well, I'm glad I could humor you. Call me crazy but as a homeowner, I like to keep my property looking clean and well maintained. If that means taking precautions so I donít have oil/rust/grime stains, etc. on my driveway, so be it. Personally, I donít even work or detail my vehicles in my driveway. I do everything in my garage.

OP, if you have access to one, I would try a pressure washer.

OK... crazy.

Do you take your shoes off as soon as you step in the front door too?

As I keep reminding my mother... it's a house, not a museum. Things get dirty, scratched, stained, etc. That is an unavoidable part of life.

Let me put it this way... you, as the homeowner, are the only person getting upset b/c your driveway has a few spots on it. Nobody else cares.

I've heard of people coming up with cardboard wheel templates so that tire shine doesn't get on the wheels, perhaps a piece of cardboard with a cutout for the surface contact of the wheel could be used to not get the tire shine on the driveway. It doesn't bother me when it's on my driveway, as it'll wash away after a few weeks.

You can see the tire shine on my driveway in this pic from when I cleaned up my Brother In Law's Shelby GT (no paint correction, just wax, he's trying to sell it)

If you wear your shoes in the house you track in dirt. So when you get out of the shower or are relaxing with no shoes on your socks/bare feet get dirty. You also have to clean your house less. (Assuming you even do that) I don't see why you don't grasp that concept. And, yes, wear and tear happens. But it will happen slower if you take some simple precautions. I'm not telling you how to keep your house; there's a cable channel devoted to it. All I'm saying is some people aren't fond of their stuff being dirty/broken/scratched/stained/destroyed etc.

It has nothing to do with what other people see. It has something to do with taking care of what you've earned and paid for.

Ö.things that get dirty, scratched, stained, etc. due to unintentional mishaps is one thing. However, things that get dirty, scratched, stained, etc. due to carelessness is another.

I knew this guy 20 years ago who had a truck the same year as mine and similarly optioned (a friend of a friend). I was helping him move a cable spool to his property out in New Mexico. As he was helping load the spool, my friend could see that he was being careless and told him to wait. His response was nearly identical your viewpointÖ. ďItís a truck. Itís going to get scratches & dentsĒ. My friend response was ďno, itís Keanís truck, and he likes to take care of the things he ownsĒ. Fast forward 10 years when he tried to sell his truck and he was honestly shocked that everyone low-balled him on the sale. Coincidentally, I sold my truck just a couple of months earlier and easily got high Blue Book for it due to its condition. Ö.his was heavily scratched, dented and faded as you might expect from someone who simply didnít care how it looked.

Resale value is certainly one benefit but there are others as well. In your Mom's case, she likely just enjoys her home clean and well kept. If that means taking off your shoes when you come inside to help prevent you from tracking in dirt, oils, grime that might stain her floors/carpet, I really donít see the big deal. Actually, Iím used to it with some of my wifeís friends (asian). I donít currently remove my shoes in most cases in my own home (unless I was working in the yard or garage), but that will change when we get new carpet. Ö.the high traffic areas are already tile so that helps as well.

Ö.and yeah, my fellow neighbors actually do care and can appreciate a well kept house (as can I). They have even complimented me on how well I maintain my vehicles. Ö.but I donít do all of this for their approval/benefit. I simply like taking care the things I own.

That is how I got into the detailing side business that I have now, since I was 16 I always wanted to make sure that my car was clean and protected and running well.

Same, minus the detailing business.

But I always keep my car in tip-top.clean (shape), not for compliments, but so that I can feel competent in my car.

But power washer is crucial, if not some driveway de-greaser from Home Depot and has worked well for me. It comes in a bottle I believe.

Exactly! You couldn't of described it better

I detail on the side and was in a pinch. Luckily he is a good friend but every time I am over I see it and when he see's it gets mad lol I will clean try some things mentioned above this weekend and see what happens. It beats his idea of laying down some E85 from his car on the driveway and lighting it.

Armorall, like most cheaper tire shine products, is petroleum based and will not only damage your driveway but trap dirt on your tires. Just use a water based product, like adams or prima.

Got my driveway resealed a few years ago and one of the things the company said was to NOT use tire shine on it. A few months after I did, and the marks are still there. It doesn't bother me though.

But, goes to show you even the driveway companies know what that stuff does to them.

Bingo! Same thing I do.

My Dad has a fleet of those driveway sealer trucks and almost half of his clients call due to someone spraying down tire shine that cannot be remove he just sprays over it done deal.
