Hoi, Since I have searched high and low for the best tire dressing, I've accumulated quite a few over the years. Why not put my four favorites head to head? 1) Tropi-Care Tire & Trim Dressing ($9.95 for 16 oz.) 2) Optimum Opti-Bond Tire Dressing ($15.95 for 32 oz.) 3) Adam's VRT ($14.95 for 16 oz.) 4) Zaino Z-16 ($12.95 for 16 oz) Notes: - Tires were all washed and scrubbed w/ an APC - New applicators were used for each tires/dressing UNDRESSED: ======== Tire 1, undressed w/ Tropi-Care: Tire 2, undressed w/ Optimum: Tire 3, undressed w/ Adam's Tire 4, undressed w/ Zaino 1st LAYER: ======= Tire 1, one layer w/ Tropi-Care: Tire 2, one layer w/ Optimum: Tire 3, one layer w/ Adam's: Tire 4, one layer w/ Zaino: 2nd LAYER: ======== Tire 1, two layers w/ Tropi-Care: Tire 2, two layers w/ Optimum: Tire 3, two layers w/ Adam's: Tire 4, two layers w/ Zaino: Tropi-Care on the front, Optimum in the back: OBSERVATIONS: =========== - I found that all tire dressings looked blotchy and uneven upon first layer - The second layer after 5 minutes removed any uneven application - The Zaino smells amazing! - I found the Optimum to be too thick, and difficult to apply - Easiest to apply was the Tropi-Care, as it's cheap enough to put in a Viton spray bottle and apply away. - I was amazed how little Zaino was required. I will be updating everyone upon my next wash to test durability. Stay tuned!
