Just bought some Griot's Garage Best of Show Wax, it was really easy to put on with a orbital buffer, but taking it off with micro fiber rags, it was freaking hard, it reminded me of turtle wax paste - took like two hours to take it off with a few breaks, but whatever. got gas after:

Yeah man. Full proper details take forever. That's why the pros ask what they ask for the jobs and get it.

I's not THAT bad. As long as you're not driving reckless you'll be fine. Just be careful. Luckily i haven't bent any of the 19's i've had but driving on 19's in NY isn't very fun. One of the reasons i'm switching from 19's to 18's is for more comfort.
You ought to take that beauty and do the Tail of the Dragon on the TN/NC border. 300+ curves in 11 miles, California-style twisties. Lots of other great roads around there too, most in excellent condition.

Road trip!
