Thread: Tyre shine

  1. #1

    Tyre shine

    Quick one gents. Iíve got every bloody tyre shine known to man - mothers/meguires/turtle/SCA/etc etc.
    I was going through my garage of 600 tyre products and found my trustee armour all.
    Dead set this stuff is bloody magic. This tyre took 30 seconds and the pic was taken about 2 hours after application - meaning it retains the gloss. You can just about see the clouds in the reflection.
    If you want a tyre shine that is super quick and rediculously glossy grab ya self a can.
    Cheers - Chris

    Haven't used armourall for quite sometime.
    Thanks for posting the result.
    I've also used so many types I've lost the count but I do recall great result from this and have a brand new one in the kit to re try next detail https://www.google.com.au/search?q=m...e+shine&client
    You go through stages, do I want gloss or flat/natural finish.
    I do prefer gloss but not OTT, some are just too glossy but a mid gloss finish is nice and my pref.
    Mat or natural look is just too plain for me.

    I don't rate it.

    It doesn't give that shine / luster / new car look.

    Its probably my most hated bowdens product! :P

    That's why I like the bowdens. Personally I hate the glossy wet look on tyres. It just looks unnatural.

    I like the new tyre look and the fact it lasts for ages.

    I'll have to re visit the Bowden tyre shine - I'm sure I have one but seeing I have many I've kept using that currently open but I'll get the Bowden one out in this case for my next clean.

    Ok confession time

    After years of wasting money on expensive gear that left me underwhelmed, I bought some cheap shit from Supercheap. Spray on, takes 30 seconds and then wipe off the excess with a warm damp cloth. Gloss is high, instant and it lasts for a about a month. Can lasts for about 3 or more applications. $6.99 well spent lol

    LOL, so true Colville.
    I get pi$$ed the money I have burned on so many things detail wise that my collection is quite vast in multiples of similar products looking for the "one" thats its the one.
    With all this moving of homes this last month the black hilux was looking "woeful" for my standards, many new marks on clear coat etc - my standards for this daily is not like the Falcons I have but I run a clean presented car inside outside, I hate dirty and its the first being its size I've started going to a local car wash near my office and have built up a relationship.
    I accepted them giving the hilux its 1st ever detail incl polish for the lowest sum ever I've paid of $130 just yesterday !.
    Wash/vacuum/windows/polish incl buff on some areas.
    Now their product is not what I have in the garage but the hilux looks "amazing" lol.......
    All marks have been eliminated, I'm not caring of clear coat marks but to the laymen the hilux would look so well looked after.
    I'm taking the Mrs's Jeep to them later in the week.
    $130 !
    I've spent more on wheel woolies and saves me hours and hours of my time ROFL !
