Tire dressing?

What are you putting on your tires?
Looking for a long lasting, non slinging dressing

I use meguiars endurance tire gel. I apply it to a foam sponge and work into the tire. Key is to not use too much - a little goes a long way. Perfect level of black and slight shine (I hate that slick greasy look). Lasts a few weeks before needing another coat and does not sling up the side. My SRT is black and I absolutely hate that oil splatter mess most sprays and brush on products produce. Good stuff in my opinion

Re: Tire dressing?

I've been pretty happy with Chemical Guys TVD Tire and Trim gel. I just apply a very light coat after washing/drying and let it sit while detailing other parts of the vehicle. Then after that wipe it down with a dry towel and it's basically dry to the touch but looks great.

Tire dressing?

I use Adams Super VRT and most recently started using CarPro Perl. Both are outstanding. Non slinging and won't brown on your tires either. Gives almost a matte/satin/semi gloss look depending on how much is applied. Make sure you use a good rubber cleaner to clean all the previous gunk off the tires and then apply to your liking.

Re: Tire dressing?

Nothing. Tires aren't made to be naturally shiny... that's what the wheels are for.

Bleche White and a nylon bristle brush, then air dry. Good enough for me!

I know this isn't gonna go over well with the shiny sidewall crowd out here but I couldn't resist taking a poke at you. It's all in fun though.

Re: Tire dressing?

Adams VRT is best I've found. I can go with or without dressing.

Re: Tire dressing?

Make sure the tires are nice and clean then two coats of CarPro Perl, 20-30 minutes apart.

I don't do it for the shine, or even the wet look. The dressing I use does neither of these if applied liberally. I do it because tires only look good when BLACK. Not the dingy gray, even after washed.

This stuff is fantastic. I bought a 32oz. bottle almost 2 years ago and haven't even gone through half of it yet.

I bought the same stuff about a year ago because of all the rave reviews.
It enhances the black of the tire while the VRT gives you more of a wet look. I prefer the VRT but the stuff is overpriced.
