For almost 2 years I've been using Endurance for my 2 cars, washed almost every week, still have a little less than half a bottle left. Can easily last 1 week, rain or shine. To me it's really value for money.

Regards.

ciplak + ciplak = new formula in making.....who knows, you may have just become a genetic modifier! tongue.gif

When you have found a new shiny and lasting formula out of it, you should name it as 'ciplak' brand too!...it should sell well here! biggrin.gif

Should try the same 'ciplak' way for the waxes & polishes too...might be pleasantly surprised with its outcome....hmm :lol

Just some photo of tyre that been dressed


Tyre 1
Last weeks, 2 days before chinese new year i think, upon car wash.. as usually tyre was brush and wash with degreaser... free from grease & dirt...than i applied a layer of foam type tyre dressing and put the car outsite the house for entire week, expose to sunlight, rain..in between car was drove 2 times under sunny day (dressing still intact - wet look)...than yesterday before heading to a further destination, i did a complete car wash (since started buiding water mark)...and tyre was simply washed with balance shampoor only...dressing became matte look (tyre still look black just not much gloss)..Than travelled about 100km in heavy rain on way home...

Check out the dressing this morning, still look THE SAME like before i went out yesterday..mean matte look. Just now before drove the car back to the car porch, apply a layer of All Season Dressing (used like 5-10 small drops only)..here's the look of it (photo took under overcast weather since about to rain)...

Ps : Forgot to mentioned. Age of tyre is coming to 4.5 to 5 years old smile.gif


Tyre 2
Very alike Tyre 1 situation. Different is the car was in car porch entire week without driving. So just top up a layer of All Season Dressing earlier.

Age of the tyre is around 13-16 months only.

Here's the look.


Question to all sifu. Do you think dressing durabality have any 'direct or indirect linkage' with the tyre (rubber) quality...reason i asked is Tyre 1 is made in Japan tyre and tyre 2 is made in Malaysia tyre wink.gif

Not too sure on durability, but tyre shines differently on different tyres using same tyre dressings...This is because I have used different type of tyres, and the rubber compound shines differently.

Also I feel that the left side tyres dull faster than the right side. This could be due to dirt/mud on the road shoulder, as we drive on the left side. Any comment on this?

rdgs,

rdgs,


Hmm guess you are right about rubber compound use on tyre...since my Toyo claimed uses some 'new' tech rubber..well the grip is definetely way better than local made tyre in no matter in wet or dry condition.

AS for left dull faster than right side i have never experience such issue..or maybe i need to pay more notice into this matter...

Btw, we drove on right hand car...not left handed

i think vr2 meant drive on the left side of the road, not righthand drive or vice versa.

to me, a Tupps tire shine costing RM9.90 is sufficient as the shine lasts a week after which i scrub everything off and reapply, no issue here. buying a RM53 tire shine is just above my budget.

Where about this product available ? Any pic of the product and pic of dressed tyre ? Need to see how much gloss it can bring out.

Ps : apply multiple layerS of M21 will make your budget gone faster. If it works, 1 or 2 layer will do wink.gif
