Great review cooks

It's a excellent tyre dressing and I like that you can choose the finish with this.

Keep up the good work bud

ive been using around 6 months now after the great reviews here. Ive found it can be applied to appear shiny. It doesn't last any longer than any of the other better dressings though, maybe a week or two before it dulls.

However, its a thick liquid and it seems to go a long way. Still only 1/3 way through my bottle and ive used it at least every two weeks for 6 months

Used this for the first time yesterday. Went on easy enough - now to see about durability.

The instructions on the bottle state that heating with a hair dryer will increase durability, on the website the pro tip from Yves Heylen recommends using a heat gun (rather than a hair dryer) to both increase durability and create a more matte finish:

Has anyone tried this and noticed a difference with not using heat?

The recommendation to use heat isn't very specific - i.e. whether to use the heat before or after application or both. It's claimed the heating opens the micropores in the rubber to allow the product to soak in - I'd be minded to heat both before and after application before wiping away any remaining excess. Thoughts?

Ive found that if you warm the tyre up slightly with a heat gun, apply Tire, then again use the heat gun to force cure Tire it does actually last a lot longer.

Ive had 3 weeks from 1 application from this method
