    Re: Mini reviews: 303 Tire and Rubber cleaner, 303 Tire Balm and Gyeon Essence

    Time will tell how it holds up but one coat not shiny. Just clean black. Hope for longevity from one coat, after that will lay more coats on

    The 303 Tire Balm is very easy to apply. Looks fantastic. I like the way it feels too. Coating like.

    Easy to apply but so far my impressions after using it on a few sets of tires is that it may be the equivalent of a water based tire gel. I donít think Iím buying the coating thing

    I put it on one tire of our van and drive through the rain and it looked crappy like any other water based dressing does after rain

    Maybe it will get better. Put it on 4 michelins yesterday weíll see how that goes.

    Gotta clean the continentals on my car and try it this week as well. Rain is the true test right now

    OK. I haven't driven in rainy weather yet. I was hoping it would last a month or so. I've applied 3 layers.

    2 coats has a better look IMO still not very glossy. Just a sheen I would call it

    My wife took the van in the rain yesterday. Did around 40 miles in the rain. Tires look like garbage this morning when I checked. So 2 coats on cleaned Michelin tires didnít last for us in 1 rain.

    For the half price they were selling seems about right. It didnít sling. Looks ok after two coats but hasnít held up to rain on those tire. Would compare it to the average non slinging water based tire dressing so far.

    My accord has two coats and itís raining today lightly so it might get a little rain abuse I can monitor. Mine has the factory continental in 19Ē

    Re: Mini reviews: 303 Tire and Rubber cleaner, 303 Tire Balm and Gyeon Essence

    Well, Iím not sure what to think of it so far.

    I used it on one tire yesterday after a good cleaning. I tried using a paint brush to apply it and that didnít work so well. Then went a grabbed a sponge and that was much better.

    It went on similar to most other tire dressings and looked fine until I looked at it again later. Then you could definitely tell where I had already applied it with a brush before the sponge. I guess it had already cured some by the time I came back with the sponge and was darker and glossier in the brushed areas so that area basically got two coats.

    Then I drove in the rain later and that killed it.

    I did another tire with McKees at the same time and the rain had the same affect.

    I donít know if either really had time to set up or really cure because of the rainy weather. Iíll have to try again on a nicer day to see if that makes any difference.

    So it looks like the 303 Tire Balm turned out to be a dud...

    Almost used it today, but ran out of time. I guess it’s a good thing because it poured on and off on the way to and during a job I had this afternoon.

    Re: Mini reviews: 303 Tire and Rubber cleaner, 303 Tire Balm and Gyeon Essence

    I call it no good on our Michelin equipped minivan. Looks ok with 2 coats as long as it doesnít rain. Worth I guess the 5.50 it was on sale for half price. Tires look streaky and brown after that rain it went through. Redid them with some inexpensive Barrett Jackson tire shine I picked up at a close out store and they look a ton better I know it wonít last really either though

    On our car, it has 19Ē continentals, and just saw wetness from road spray after rain no direct rain and it doesnít look bad. Two coats and it has a dark look to it. Not the best look I have seen and quite frankly not as shiny as I like either. I like gloss. But Black is better than brown tires lol

    Calling this stuff average. Nothing ground breaking or coating like qualities that were thrown around here.

    I got 4 bottles of it on sale so now it will be used strictly on the continental tires on the car till it runs out long from now

    Anyone else got any feedback on this stuff I canít get much to last in LSP or tire stuff where I live, drive and park.
