    El prep question

    I have a new set of cut els. They've been cut and prepped on the inside. What can I do to get the tire to take the outside prep.
    Do I need to cut it with something, or maybe apply a little heat.

    Use EL specific prep and you shouldn't have any problem with them taking prep

    The el specific preps soak in quick and leave the tire surface dry about as fast as you wipe it.

    "Dry as fast as you wipe it" how can you tell the difference between "soaking in" and just evaporating? Just curious, don't take offense.

    It's something you won't have to worry about all.
    Part soaks in part evaporates, it the nature of the beast

    What are you currently using? We use the slowest drying outside treatments we make on ELs and never have a issue with them drying.

    I use regular outside prep on our els and are always fast. Have tried el specific prep and had to wipe it so much and still couldnt get the results we wanted.
