Some of you saw the new tire coating on John's and Lindsey's cars at Carlisle.

https://dura-coating.com/collections/du ... l-tire-kit

I bought three kits. Figured I could get four cars done with the three kits and that appears to be the case. Need to do the show car this coming weekend in preparation for an indoor show on the 20th of August in Savannah.

Supposed to last up to a year and not fade. We drove through a lot of rain on the way there and way home and I have to say I am extremely impressed. A little soap and water and they are right back to shiny.

The prep is the worst part, you need to clean the tires with the supplied cleaner and brush. The older the tire the more times you will need to clean. Once the suds stay white you are set to move on to applying the dressing.

We did 5 coats in about an hour and a half and put them on the car later that night. Super easy, no mess and it looks amazing.

A little expensive but if it lasts a full year it will be worth it. I will keep updating this thread as the time goes by.

I am a gloss tire shine guy but they have instructions for a satin finish as well.

Will post some pics of Lindsey's and M-Pressive when we pull them back out of the garage.

Good to see some more durable tire dressings on the market. Yes, cleaning the tire is *essential*, for any dressing. While "dirt don't stick to clean", the inverse is true... "dressing don't stick to dirt". When I wash a car, I first clean the wheels and tires, and will scrub the tires twice to get that white froth confirming it's clean, then my dressing lasts longer.

Curious to see how durable this is for you, I'm sure Lindsey's car will be the durability test bed. Might be a good option for Durango, it's seldom driven and I've found the Adams dressing lasts about a month of occasional use (twice a week mostly) on that car. I'm a satin tire guy for daily driving, but I'll throw another coat on (of Meguiar's Hyper Dressing, or Adams Tire Shine, or Adams Graphene VRT, which I tried out at Carlisle this year... I'll check how that's surviving later today) at shows for that extra sparkle.
