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

    Had to rewash the wife's Mazda 6 today and I noticed the tires were brown, even after the wash through the drive thru wash yesterday. This was a great time to try 303 Tire & Rubber Cleaner, newly released product. I sprayed it on a dry tire and by the time the tire was covered it was already turning brown, scrubbing it really brought out the dirt! This product is very fast acting! Once my current tire cleaners are emptied I'm making the switch to 303 Tire and Rubber cleaner.

    Then it was time to wash the car and since it was washed yesterday I just needed to foam and rinse the car down, wasn't completely happy with how the carwash went down, damn machines. Gyeon Bathe Essense is the concentrated version of regular Bathe and it really is! I just added 2 pumps to my foam dispenser and it was good to go. The amount of foam was great, considering it isn't a cannon. I let it sit and then just rinsed it away. These Gyeon soaps are really great and will be used exclusively on my car once it's recoated this spring.

    Finally there's 303 Tire Balm, a product I've been using for some time now and should be here at AG pretty soon if I had to guess but if you can't wait it's available online. I applied this here with a Carrand tire applicator, works great but a foam applicator works fine as well. A little goes a long way and because of its consistency, spreads easily. Depending on the temp, the product dries to the touch in about 10 mins and shine is controllable with adding multiple coats. Lastly I should mention the price, it's VERY competitive and made here in the USA, from the bottle, label and what's inside!

    Here's a couple pics from today's cleaning using the above reviewed products, 2 are newer and 1 isn't but because it's the 1st time I used it, well, it's new to me.

    Please feel free to ask questions here, I'm here to help out in anyway I can because 303 has really stepped up their line up in the past year especially, not just 303 protectant anymore!!

    Ohhh, LOL. Sadly it's not stuffed with dead presidents or kite flyers but rather pictures and various plastic cards. Speaking of that wallet I do condition it with 303 3 in 1 leather when I treat my steering wheel/shift boot or shoes, works great!

    Take pics of the tires in 2 days with and w/o flash. So far this tire balm shows dry blotches every single time...
