I mount tires almost every day (3 today), and it's Murphy's every time,
for over 15 years. The tires are happy with it, and so am I.
I'm sure they are, it looks like good stuff. I saw the words vegetable, oil, and rubber and reacted to that. murphy's oil soap for tire mounting is a new one to me, but I only do my own tires, maybe 1/2 dozen a year, and dish soap works well enough for that.
