A big no to this. A perfect way to kill your tyre.
You can get plenty of choices. Try STP 'Son of a Gun'

Shoe polish didnt work on my Duckback boots while at school. I dont see how they can work on tyres that are of roughly the same constitution.

Scrum em clean, and use that son of a gun!

Hi,
i would advise to go for turtlewax products. you will get perfect wet and black look which will last for weeks on dusty roads. worth the money. one bottle will cost around 500rs but will last for a year. Its available in India and i am a user. There might not be enough dealers.
visit www.tpc3carcare.com. they are in Mumbai.
they will courier it you. you just have to do bank transfer the amount to their account. I am a customer of theirs.
Regards,
Mahesh.
