Gyeon tyre is no doubt an awesome product but if you have Meguairs tyre gel (not the spray) why not make use of it?

The first "gotcha" is that the tyre must be clean and wiped off other tyre dressings and dirt.

The second is that it needs to be applied to a sponge applicator pad then rubbed to ensure thin application is achieved. If you find it slinging over the rims then probably too much was applied or it was not wiped off. This is where the sponge applicator pad comes in handy.

You can then use a MF cloth to wipe away any excess tyre gel (it wont be as shiny and wet looking but it wont sling all over).

A second coat can be applied once the first coat has dried but ensure it is thin.

Hope this helps anyone.

Nice simple instructuons mate

It's easy stuff to use, any sling just means too much excess product has been applied.

I've got a curved shaped sponge thing I use for tyres and because it's greasy it goes much further. And because i use the same sponge for that purpose there is always some dressing in there from previous so I use even less. I do a length of the sponge which is about three inches and that can do three of my 18" before needing more. I towels be nice if it was less oily as it is a messy product but looks good. Trial and error. If you want it to last longer then be sure your tyres are clean and grease free where possible and do one layer. Leave to soak and wipe excess. Then add another layer a couple of hours later. I can get almost two weeks do this even in wet weather.

I use this to apply tyre dressing. Cheap from most super markets. Trim the scouring pad surface off with a craft knife to leave just the foam. Clean hands is a bonus. Remember to store with the pad up
