    Tire Dressing Applicators?

    Any recommendations for an easy way to apply a tire dressing to off-road tires? I've used your typical applicator, and even a sponge to apply Hyper Dressing. Worked OK, but looking for something quicker and better. Is there a foam type dressing that works well? Applying the dressing to my tires is a bit of a PITA to be honest for something I feel should be more simple.

    Get yourself a FLAGGED TIPPED BRUSH. Spray your choice of tire protectant directly on the brush. Then go around the tires to dress them. Works perfect every time!

    One of the best tips I’ve learned from AGO was this one from Pro 4x. Too bad I’ve largely switched to tire coatings but I still use this and 253 on my wife’s and kid’s vehicles.

    Agreed!... I always use a brush to spread and even out tire dressings.

    I've seen you mention this before and the brush you use, but how would it work on a car with lower profile tires? Would the same brush work or would you need to go with something smaller like this: Carrand Brush & Shine Tire Dressing Applicators, tire brush, tire shine applicator ?

    I use a cheap foam applicator today, but always looking for ways to do it better/cheaper

    I think the one you linked would be ok for low profile tires.

    Feathered tip wheel brushes work great as tire dressing applicators for oversized off-road tires. Short Handle Tire/Wheel Brush

    On standard size tires and low-profile tires i like to use the Speed Master Tire Dressing Applicators - Speed Master Tire Dressing Applicator

    I use the Car Pro applicator for mine and hold it at an angle to fit the profile of the tire but mine aren't super low profile.
