The point is that because of Walmart marketing so many made in China products, it's helping to destroy our economy and the lives of millions of people by sending American jobs to communist China.

It is made in the U.S.A., thank you Mother's! The issue is that Walmart ships off many jobs to China, by selling cheap, made in China goods, hurting our economy and every American citizen. I don't believe this is what the founder of Walmart, (Sam Walton), had intended at all.

So when you buy Mother's products, I encourage people to buy them somewhere that doesn't support shipping American jobs to China.

Everywhere "support(s) shipping American jobs to China."

Give me a place I can buy products from that doesn't do this. Amazon? Guarantee their call center isn't in america.

C'mon. I'm no fan of wal Mart, in fact haven't purchased anything from them in years, but this is capitalism. If the Chinese are willing to work for less, that's where companies are going to look.

Back to Black says it works on rubber. What about tires? The last thing I want is material slinging off in the rain. Rubber is somewhat porus (as compared to vinyl).
Thanks

No,don't use it on tires,proper tire stuff is way better. I'm partial to Meguire's Endurance tire spray which lasts for more than a week. I also like Meguire's Trim Shine vs Mother's.

The Meguire's Endurance isn't made to shine as it's more for protection and after the intial application is tones down to a nice simple black.

I have not tried it, I am simply going by the marketing.
"Endurance Tire Spray provides a rich, dark, high-gloss shine that endures washing, rain, & dries quickly eliminating overspray, runs & drips. The end result is that your tires stay black for weeks longer than ordinary tire-shine products."
So it looses it's initial shine as it dries? Cause honestly, my eagles look like utter crap with any sort of shine (the shoulders are rounded).

If you apply the shine then wipe it off a few minutes later it'll just have a muted matte shine.
