    5/3 Update!

    I have to say that the Tropi-Care last longer than any of the other three dressings. None of the photos were altered in any way, apart from resizing and adding a border. You can see there is still some "gloss" left here.

    The Opti-Bond is completely gone.

    Adam's VRT, gone as well.

    And yes, there is still some gloss left to the Zaino!

    Hope you guys enjoyed...

    Nice to see my favorite Tropi Care is holding up as well for you as it does for me. Like I've said in my posts I don't need any other dressings with this stuff in my aresenal.

    Thanks for taking the time to do this P1et! I'll have to keep Tropi Care in mind when I run out of my current stash.

    I still love Surf City beyond black tire pro. It just makes tires look like new tires. Not extra shiny.

    And it's dry to the touch so dirt doesnt' stick. I usually apply 2 layers to truck tires as well.

    Thanks for the test. Interesting
    I don't think those tyres would be the best to use for a tire shine test as they would be a medium to hard compound which will absorb less product and the products won't stick to them for as long as you may desire

    Test it on a soft compound street legal race tyre or ultra high performance tyre such as yokohama's
    putting a foundation on before you apply your shine product is essential

    the foundation I am going to use from now on is Gtechniq C4

    I spilled some Zaino in my driveway and for a couple of years everytime it rained you could see the spots where the Zaino was. I couldn't believe how long it lasted.

    I always liked the Zaino, and i like Surf City Beyond Black as well.

    Will have to look out for the TropiCare stuff. :thumb:

    Great review!

    I use Zaino Z-16 and I can confirm: Excellent durability. Smells very good. Only need a tiny drop.
