    Disclaimer: I copied this from another forum but I am the original author.

    This is a little tip I came up with (until someone else claims it, lol) for cleaning and dressing the whole sidewall of your tires without having to roll up a few feet to clean and then back again to dress.

    I had some 2X4s laying around the shop, so I cut a 45 degree angle on one end and place one in front of each tire.

    The plank is set in about 1-2″ from the top of the sidewall. Then I drive up onto them. I usually get a little bit of a rolling start.

    You wont believe how hard it can be to just roll up them LOL! Oh, and don’t forget to set your parking brake…

    Here you can see how they are set back from the sidewall.

    Now, I can clean & dress all the way under the tire!
