    Tire Dressings PERL vs Hyper Dressing D170

    I am not a professional detailer, but have learned a lot by reading the forms! I do take care of my families vehicles and like to keep them clean. Anyway, I ran out of PB Bold & Bright tire shine and decided to try CG TVD_102 new car shine. I like a bit more glossy and the CG TVD_102 just doesn't provide a shine and really doesn't look like anything is applied. I have been using simple green to clean the tires before applying. After a bunch of reading, I narrowed it down to PERL & HD D170. It looks like PERL will give you a bit more shine than HD. I couldn't find any direct comparisons, but would like opinions. I like the fact that both products have multiple purposes which will help me eliminate some inventory.

    Thanks

    I've read many stories of PERL coming off if rained on once or twice. Personally, I'm a fan of Optibond, Gtechniq T1 or 303 tire balm

    I do use PERL but inside pieces. I tend to agree with howardm4 and use Optibond for my exterior pieces... tires included... pretty amazing... i think i will just stick with it for a while. Like Mike says, find something you like and stick with it...

    Thanks. Is Optibond a more glossy look?

    I don't think so. Maybe in the middle to just shy of the middle of 'glossiness'. If you put on two coats it's a little more gloss. not near as glossy as Griot's Garage Black Shine Tire & Trim coating. And not as glossy as a petroleum-based product but I'd say it's definitely not satin or matte

    The tires on my dad's Jeep were done with Opti-Bond

    Goonie, thanks for the pics. That is the look I am trying to achieve.

    Looks awesome

    I like PERL on my tires. Deep black, not too shiny. (Goonies pics above while very nice, are just a bit too glossy for my personal taste).

    Yes, it only lasts a week or two if it doesn't rain, but I can whip a new coat on my tires with an applicator in mere minutes.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    Yup, I used it on my tires and trim and it streaked after a light rain. I'm not a fan of Perl for tires or exterior trim.

    As for trim, tried it once. Fail.

    Goonie, is that 1 coat or 2? Sorta looks too glossy for only one. I personally am a satin-y advocate. I like 1 coat.
