DetailingworldReview – AutoGlym High Performance Tyre Gel

Detailingworld Review – AutoGlym High Performance Tyre Gel
*
Introduction
Firstly thanks to Mark*over at AutoGlym for sending over the Tyre Gel for review.


AutoGlym are long established brand, no strangers to keeping cars clean and protected.
For more info on them: https://www.autoglym.com/about-us

The Product
The product arrived looking exactly like you would expect from Autoglym, in a nice white PET bottle which matches their products.



The actual gel is a moderately thick gel, slightly pink in colour and smells a little bit fruity. Rather pleasant to be fair.

AutoGlym say about the Tyre Gel:
"*Perfectly dressed tyres complete the look of your clean car. High Performance Tyre Gel is a long lasting, sweet scented tyre dressing. It contains active silicone polymers which contribute to the depth of shine and durability.
To ensure precise and even coverage apply with our Perfect Polish Applicator.
It can leave you with a high gloss or natural ‘new tyre’ finish, whichever you prefer.*"


The Method
So first things first, the car I was trying this out on was a 2012 Range Rover Evoque.
The wheels were in a rather dirty state to begin with so were washed in the normal manner, tyre's given a good spritz of cleaner and a good brushing until they were coming up clean.
They were then left looking like this, tyres were dull and lifeless really. Many years of neglect means they'd seen better days.

*
The AutoGlym guys then say on their website to:
Apply a small amount of High Performance Tyre Gel to a Perfect Polish Applicator.
I didn't have the AG applicator so used my normal tyre dressing applicator.

*

It sat on the applicator nicely, a nice gel meant it didn't just soak straight in.



A quick 50/50 showing the difference

*

It went on to the wheel very nice, no need to keep going over the same spot. Spread very well and consistently with very little patchy areas.
And then the finished wheel, not wiped down with a MF but just allowed to dry naturally for about 2-3 minutes.

*
Price
*
The website shows the prices at:

£10.70*for 500ml

https://www.autoglym.com/high-performance-tyre-gel

Seems a fair price for the amount I used for 1 coat on 4 tyres. I would feel happy I could get a fair amount of uses from this bottle.

Would I use it again?
Yewh I would. I like my tyres glossy and after 1 coat this did leave a bit of gloss. I feel a second would have really left some deep gloss behind.
Didn't feel greasy or like there would be any 'slinging' worries.

Conclusion
Time was really of the essence for me dressing these tyres and the Autoglym tyre gel really helped me along my way. So easy to use I had the tyres dressed in no time and left a really nice finish.
I'd happily use it again and defiantly give 2 coats a go and see what gloss I can achieve.

Nice review Darren

1 question - Did you apply the gel just once to do the lot or four times for each tyre ?

Hi mate
thanks for the nice comments!

I would say one squirt u can see in the picture did half a tyre
But that did progressively get more coverage as more product seeped into the applicator

I'd say 2 blobs per tyre

Yes, I'd agree with this, been using it for a good few months now.

I use same applicator and don't clean it, so gets steadily built up and saturated with the product, so you do generally use less. I'm finding on previous tyres, probably 3 blobs for 2 tyres, on new tyres with nothing previous, still tending to use 2 blobs per tyre.

Oh and smell - cherry
