    What key features would you like to see in a new tire dressing?

    What key features would you like to see in a new tire dressing?


    Making tires look good is a huge part of the finishing steps to any detail. It's a Test Question on the IDA Skills Validation test.


    Mind you - we're not talking about tire COATINGS - but traditional and/or conventional tire dressings. For example, Armor-Al is considered a traditional Tire Dressing.



    What say you?

    To last long of course, certainly through a few rains and up to a month or more would be nice.

    They also shouldn't sling, be dry to the touch, and resist dirt

    They should be easy to apply: either simple spray on and walk away or easily applied with an applicator or brush

    The degree of shine should be easily controlled according to the amount applied

    A value size amount should be offered per bottle. Too small a bottle isn't practical and expensive. Gallon sizes of dressings are attractive

    Price must be reasonable by the smaller size bottle and the gallon
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    I don't thing anything will top DURAGLOSS #253. But key areas are....

    1. NO SLING OFF
    2. When applied, leaves a uniform look.
    3. Water based.
    4. Lasts a decent amount of time before applying again.

    Re: What key features would you like to see in a new tire dressing?

    Interesting comments.

    Just to note, to my knowledge Andre and team are not working on anything.

    I was simply thinking about this product category and wanted to see what other's think.

    I used the Griot's High Gloss Dressing on the Chevy truck I detailed last weekend and I thought it worked great EXCEPT - I always WIPE the tire sidewalls down with a scrap rag after application to remove any excess and thus prevent any dressing sling.

    Wiping the tire sidewall also reduced the gloss.

    And then I thought,

    I'm happy that I won't see any dressing sling, but I ruined the high gloss I was looking for.


    So started this thread.

    1. Controllable shine...1 coat is good, 2 coats is shinier, 3 coats looks wet, etc...
    2. No sling
    3. Dry to the touch or as dry as possible
    4. Longevity
    5. If it's water based, a little more water resistant than normal.
    6. Good Value
    7. Easy to apply
    8. No sling...again!

    I've only used a handful from Giots, Megs, DP, WG, BF, Opt, and a couple of others that I cant remember now.

    My favorite right now is DP Tire Gloss Gel, it has all of the above characteristics except one, you drive in the rain and it's toast! Odd thing is that when washing the car, you do lose a bit but not like driving in the rain.

    Just my .02!

    Re: What key features would you like to see in a new tire dressing?

    Looking over all the great input provided already I think my priorities are similar to many here.

    - Durability: Nothing amazing, but it should hold up to getting wet and last at least a few weeks in dry conditions. Many fall flat when they get wet.
    - Not be sticky and attract grime
    - A dark satin to matte finish. I like my paint shiny, but not my tires.

    Really, something like Duragloss 253. The only product I've every used which will stand up to rain. Some come off with just a heavy morning dew!

    A product that when applied gives you all the great properties previously mentioned and does not require any mechanical or chemical to strip it.

    I believe it was mentioned but it should be able to be a topper to itself.
