Default How to remove yellowing on the paint from tire shine????

Ok well I've used tons of tire shines in my life and recently I tried that Armor-All Extreme Tire Shine with the little applicator pad and it slung off onto the paint behind each wheel and left a yellow film on the paint. I tried both Meguiars Paint Cleaner and the Meguiars Polish and I cant get the yellow film off the paint. Anyone have any tips for removing this film from the paint?

Thanks,
Rich

Sounds deeper than a clay bar can reach. What color is your car? What color is the tire shine? If it is colored in anyway and your paint is white, you might be SOL. the dyes in colored tired dressings can stain lower plastic painted surfaces with ease. We saw this all the time on Lexus cars.

CLEAR Tire dressings ONLY

Scratch/swirl remover? And if you know how to use it, rubbing compound (don't go crazy).

I have a crystal gray metallic subie. The tire shine is Armor All extreme. The tire shine comes out as a white/clear liquid. It says very low slinging but I guess thats BS.

Brake Cleaner or some kind of paint thinner would do it for sure

I used Clay Bar with no luck, didnt try brake cleaner but that doesn't sound good on paint. Other options?

you might want to takle it with some rubbing compound just go easy, wd40 is also good at getting tar and grease stains out so give that a try....just be careful not to make it worse....

You can use gasoline also... We use that to get rubber out of the wheel wells of our GTO.
