Hi,

The pictures are from this morning, applied Gyeon Q2 Tire yesterday evening. It is rather sticky and residue must be wiped off otherwise it can sling, but it is still a very good tire dressing IMO.

Clean tyres well with an APC, stiff brush and rinse before drying with an old MF.

I mix PERL 1:1. using a small 250 ml bottle. Actually I use an old 250 ml Acrylic spritz bottle.
I find the small spray bottle is perfect for getting the right amount on the tyres, then personally I spread the PERL with a brush and leave to dry. This can be repeated for a glossier finish but I prefer the one coat.

After that a fresh coating is applied each time I clean the car. Works really well for me.

Lasts about a year as I only use it on my own car

However PERL is versatile and can be used inside and out and even on leather so if your trying to keep costs and product to a minimum then PERL is a good shout
Have you got a picture of the finish of T1 on your tyres by any chance mate? Or when you next apply it just take a quick pic for me if you remember

Hi guys,

The perfect contestant for that comparison would be indeed Q˛M Tire Express instead of Q˛ Tire.

Ill get a pic at weekend hopefully, just got back from holiday and washed the car Sunday, the tyres still look like I just dressed them and they are beading lovely.

Every time i wash my wheels I give the tyres a gental clean with a soft split end brush and they come up great, once every 2 months I clean with degreaser and stiff brush to deep clean before re-applying
