where do you buy this tropi care in gallons i can only find the smaller sizes?? thanks
Anyone know the discount code for T-C?
After comparing both and really thinking about it, I prefer the original version over the new one.
I am on the fence, I like the satin finish of the new one but then some days I like the matte look of the old. It does make a good wheel line spray though.
Tropi Care Tire Dressing
Comes with a free foam app too!
I just applied the Tropi-Care White Pearl tire dressing last weekend to my car. I wax expecting to like it a lot, but I have to say that I was a tad disappointed. I thought I preferred a matte look on my S2K but perhaps I do not. I need to try it again, of course, and I'll be trying it on the larger tires of my wife's CR-V, too. But at the moment I have to say that on my S2K I prefer Mother's Reflections. It too gives a matte look but with just a touch (just a touch) of gloss.
did you apply 1 coat or 2? did you buff off or just apply and walk away?
Tropi-care dressing is nice. I actually mixed the new version with the old version and it looks good. I'll try and get some pics up this weekend.
My gallon did not come with a foam applicator
i bought a gallon and it came with a foam app and a sample of the sunburst sealant! woooT!
I got the sunbirst sample, and the pump for the gallon. But no foam applicator! I'll double check the box tonight but I'm fairly certain there was no foam app in there.
@slanguage: How did that mixture work for you?
I prefer the "original" version over the thicker "new" version. The new version is just too thick IMO, and doesn't spread easily, well at least not as easy as CG VRP.
But the original stuff is definitely a keeper. Reminds me of FK1 #108, but seems to last longer
It worked good. It was a 50/50 mixture of the old and new version. I sprayed it on the tire, let it set for 1-2 minutes then spread around the tire with a foam app to get even coverage. I like it.
Hmm.....I'll have to mix up a batch and try it out. I do like the scent of the "new" formula, it could be a best of both worlds situation
I got a gallon pump when I bought a gallon of the original...
Update: there will indefinately by two tire dressings, the latter will not be until a dent is put in the special 100 gallon discount... I got a sample of it, and its thick like lotion and def has a glossy look....
My methodology, v.1 on darker colors so the tires don't stand out above the depthm
V.2 on brighter colors especially with flake.... Just adds to the pop of the vehicle
Here is what I did: I applied a coat to each tire using an Eagle One applicator. I then moved the car in order to dress the bald spot on each tire and I wiped each with the applicator.
That's exactly what I did and I liked the results much more than v2 by itself, but not as much as v1 by itself. The original is still king. :graduation:
I should mix the two and see what happens, I do like v2 as it is more satin, but also found that it makes for a good fender liner dressing that last a decent amount of time. Will have to mix the two and see how I like it tomorrow.
