I have heard that anything put on your tire actually hurts it more. Not sure about 303. It depends on the ingredients. 

Not true at all.. a proper rubber/plastic  protectant will help extend the life of rubber/plastic... use it on slide out seals too...

True ,We may have been a little rough on him but most new people dont come in acting like a preacher at a revival meeting saying they have found the miracle cure for every problem we may have. Maybe 303 will help tires and if so I will be the 1st to stop and pick some up but his come on was like an advertisement that if we dont buy WD90 to put in our motor oil the pistons are all gonna blow through the valves sideways !

I have an honest question for you:

Do you believe that spraying 303 on the tread of your tires "will dramatically reduce not only dry rot,  but treadwear as well". (Emphasis added).  This was stated as fact in the OP. 

If not, do you think it reasonable to question the post?

Geez people, it’s just some free damn advice... take it or leave it.

It seems that there are many who have opinions that disagree. I suspect that the main issue is that they feel your opinion has been overstated?  I am not a chemist nor tire expert but I have spoken with the tire company representatives more than once and they pretty much universally state that most such products either do nothing for the tire or are bad for it. I think that a majority of those who participate in these forums would agree with your list of suggestions and have made similar statements, with the exception of the second one about 303 aerospace protectant.  Speaking only for myself, I would like to see some sort of scientific study or some long-term field test information to support your belief. I read lots of things on Facebook and other internet sources that have little grounding in facts.

That u-tube video should be banned. If a person decided to try that stuff on a motorcycle tire it would make the tread slicker than snot on a brass door knob resulting in the bike going out from under you. The same would happen to a car on wet pavement with this stuff fresh on the tread. even dry there still remains a film on the tire.

ADMIN should remove that video maybe the whole post.

We use quality tires on our RV's this one uses  Goodyear G6 14"s . We have never used any kind of protectorate  on our tires truck,car,RV.

We do check them carefully on a regular basis and keep them properly inflated.This Rv is a 2013 and the tires are 5 years old. They show no signs of dry rot and have plenty of tread left never the less they will be replaced with fresh shoes in  2018 if no issues arise.

We have the tires checked by a professional  and we use a TPMS for continual monitoring.

What ever you do is your choice.

Nobody said anything about motorcycles Mr. Troll.... and 303 is water based and is not slick after it penetrates... do your diligence before you run your mouth.

The 303 does seem to help rubber fight off degradation from UV. I've used it on slide seals before and actually did a test (I won't call it scientific). I used it on one half of a slide seal (half way up) and left the rest "natural". In three years of use on that RV there was a noticeable difference in rubber condition, with the 303 being much better. And I mean significantly better.   I've used it on the sides of tires, but I'm not sure it is necessary, since I age out my tires generally before any cracking occurs. But the RV rubber seems more affected.  All just my opinion - for what it is worth.

Thank you for you input, and taking the time to post.  I have had similar experiences with the product as well.
