Review: GYEON Q2M Tire

First impressions are;
- Good quality plastic bottle with a robust feel and strong plastic trigger.
- Cotents are a blue gel type liquid (similar thickness to washing up liquid)
- It has a very faint sweet smell
- Manufactured by GYEON
- Made in Korea


Using the product,

Now with most of the tyre dressing I have I apply with a brush, this allows me to control the amount I apply and it allows me to get in all the groves on the tyre wall.

The bottle,

Test #2 (applied with a brush)

Here's a couple pics of the other side tyres which were applied with a brush and left for 15 minutes then wiped.

I will post on a weekly basis to show durability as this mini belongs to the unit next door :D

Thanks for looking :thumb:

I prefer to apply tyre dressings with a paintbrush.

Does it work well into the tyre grooves, and how much is needed on a typical tyre application?

Does "curing" it with heat give a different finish, as heat is said to improve its durability. :thumb:

The packaging and presentation of these products are fantastic, do they look as good in the flesh?

Matt, what cleaning did you do to the tyre before application?

Yes it works into the groves very well when used with a brush, i found it hard to get into the groves when applying with the microfiber cloth.

There was no change to the appearance when the heat gun was used, and I only used the heat gun on one side of the car so I can gauge if this actually does help.

And yes these bottles feel very robust, however with this product I took the trigger off and poured into a clean aerosol lid.

I initially applied AS Smartwheels to the wheels and tyres and left for several minutes, and then applied a weak solution of APC (G101) and agitated with a brush and rinsed :thumb:

I can imagine spraying tyre dressing into a paintbrush would feel abit strange.

Its interesting to know if "heat" applied does actually make a difference, some of these newer style tyre coatings are asking for heat application for best results. As if dressing tyres wasn't a chore already, now it's chase the tyre with a heat gun/hairdryer for better durability. :rolleyes:

What will the neighbors think? :o

Added heat i thought it may dull the finish

If I dont have any clean lids then I do spray into the brush its self but I prefer to dip and then you can wipe any excess on the side of the lid.

I will be reporting back comparing the 2 sides so watch this space.

My customers laugh at most of my methods, and they never understand why I have 6 cupboards rammed with different products! :lol:

It didn't alter the sheen by adding heat on the test I did.:)

Nice review Matt.:thumb:

Sorry for the lack of updates on this, the person who's car I did used to work next door but walked out, I've just seen him and he said it lasted well over a month, but reckon its still on the tyres as they still looked very dark but then again it hasn't been cleaned for all this time!

Both sides looked very similar so heating the tyre once the dressing had been applied didn't make much difference, I do however have this on an E-Class which after 4 trips to London and back the dressing had clearly disappeared, and I put this down to not being allowed to cure properly, I reckon it was on the car for 20 mins before he left!

So based on this car 4-6 weeks durability, if allowed to cure for several hours :thumb:

Thanks for the update :thumb: There are 2 factors that are important here. Durability is not only beading which will last in average here 4-6 weeks for Q2 Tire, but most important is keeping the strong black color of the gum even if beading stops already. The same is for glass coatings - even if the beading/sheeting is very small on the paint, the coating will still keep its properties regarding UV protection, self-cleaning and others. :thumb: Well prepared gum is most important factor, the same as degreasing the paint before coating, but curing time(+heat) is also very important to make coating most durable. 20 mins is definitely not enough for full cure ;)
