    Dot Fluid on tyres

    I was doing a bleed and yep... you guessed it... The nozzle came out and I got Dot fluid all over my tyre. I wiped it off with alcohol and water but I can still see some between the rim and rubber. Should I be worried?

    Just hose it down real good (water deactivates DOT fluid).

    are you serious?!

    Dot Fluid causes tires to completely explode causing world disaster


    ....but I would most def check out if there's even a drop of fluid on the rotor and/or pads; could mess them up for a while until it gets ridden out
