I am currently winterizing my motorcycle was told by a friend to use PB blaster on the tires. Now I could be completely wrong but wouldn't that be extremely corrosive for the tires?
does anyone have any idea either way?
Any suggestions for things to do specifically to winterizing?
Anyone ever use "Dynamic Wonder Cleaner"?

Why would you use PB Blaster on the tires?
For what purpose?

I was told that it would help the tires during winter.
not sure if that is true... Starting to doubt it.
something about it preventing moisture on the tires?

DO NOT LUBRICATE YOUR TIRES.
if moisture was really an issue how do you ride in the rain?

thats what I thought.
and it wasent supposed to be on the tread but the sidewall.
Ive always just cleaned them well and made sure they were off the concrete

thats the key, keep the tires off the ground. mainly to prevent flat spots, but also to prevent holding moisture between the two.
Alot of the guys I know have bought a simple cycle lift from harbor freight just for that purpose.

LOL. Winterizing a motorcycle for me means
full tank of gas. pull all the fairings off put in safe place. add stabil to gas tank
hook up battery tender. start every 7-10 and allow to get up to temp. by the time it's time to ride there will be enough fuel to get to the gas station. also an oil change in the spring.
but flat spots will disapear within a heat cycle (5 miles)

I've sprayed PB Blaster into a plastic cup to soak some parts and it melted through it. I doubt it would melt the tire but I don't want to see what effect it WOULD have. Also, I'd imagine it'd make for a slippery first ride next season.

i don't do shit to my bike. i ran the carbs out of gas and banged it in to the corner. yay $300 bike.

the only reason you might have been told to do this would to be to prevent the tires from dry rotting....kinda seems like that to me. some type of silicone based tire dressing on the sidewall would probably be a better option....
