Red face Tire Dressings?

A lot has been mentioned about who and what tires dressings are the best. Not only to apply but last the longest when applied to your tires. I have tried many brands with silicon and other oil based ingredients. Which one for the money and ease is better?

There will be lots of opinions here! Some of the dressing also works differently on different brand tires and even with same brand tires because of the rubber and other content and also the binders. IMHO this si your choice by just trying different dressings until you get one that you personally like.

You can also use Marvel Mystry oil, ATF and even soda like coke.


I personally like to use something that is not usually used for tires because of the cost. About 60-80 a gallon.Blue Coral Leather Protector.



IMO It gives them a clean new look. These have been on the Explorer for 2 years always out side and driven in all normal environments. The creme will not discolor the tires like many other tire dressing do. But then it was not designed for use on tires.




I first use this product which WILL remove all the brake dust and anything that is not "tire". But as a member stated it is very effective and also very chemically strong. So the use of gloves and mask is highly recommended.





The results will be this on the tires.







Please do not comment on the wheel gap.It is there for stray cats to have a warm place to sleep at night

I really like your tires NitroPt. Wish I had that amount of time through all those steps, if it last awhile, then it's all worth the time. Randy, yours looks real nice too! They had spinners in the 80's. Maybe on her Barbie car. lol.
Thanks all for the input.
