g88,

Thanks for the info, but wow....RM53 for a bottle of tyre shine....will really have to think twice and see how long it can really last in our tropical conditions....and how long the bottle can last us if we apply it once a week. rolleyes.gif

Have you personally and particularly tried this bottle out? Did the shine really 'lasts weeks not days' as claimed, in normal daily use and our weather conditions? rolleyes.gif

Its very thick (concentrade) product, technical you need maybe like 5 to 10 drops for a 175/70/13 tyre..i am using this dressing like 2 years back, still have about 70-80% left...(out of 10 times application, i use at least 5 times of this)

Durability is good to me as far i concern...like i mentioned, surface need to be clean...bear in mind it might not bond that well if you trying to restore a very bad rubber condition or faded 'clean' tyre...- mean you wash it first...

Hope this help.

If you want more 'economy', then you might wanna look for someone to share the gallon of this product which i think now cost around Rm300

Wow (again)....that concentrate bottle lasted you more than a year? rolleyes.gif If the shine can last at least one week on the donuts, then it's considered good enough for me already, especially if i wash my precious every week. smile.gif

Then RM53 seems reasonable....may not have to think twice so hard liao....will wait till i finish my current "Hunting' brand first...finishing fast though. laugh.gif

I had been using the Endurance High Gloss Gel for more than 1.5 years.
One application can easily last me more than 2 weeks, whether in rain or shine.
Yes, you need to brush clean your tyres prior to application.

Mine also got all sorts of brands.
When there are little balances here and there, all pour into one bottle and use also.... tongue.gif
