TyreGlow applied to tires to make them look shiny, clean and new.
Over time, tire rubber simply degrades. From a detailer’s perspective, we want tyres to look nice and new, but we also want to protect them from environmental elements such us dust, dirt, mud, tar, uv-radiation, etc…
A properly cared for tire will add significantly to the overall appearance of a well-detailed vehicle. They really complete “the look” that everyone wants. TyreGlow will give your tires a new shiny look to them that will impress even the biggest enthusiasts.
Tyres & wheels are critical to the overall appearance of a car and yet are often overlooked. Considering the fact that tires are in continual contact with the road and suffer from adverse effects of road tar, dirt, grime, water, salt, brake dust, grease and ultra violet radiation ozone, and oxygen, it is understandable that they require great care. In dusty countries like Pakistan, this is even more critical!
Water vs Solvent: Tire Dressing
There are two types of tire dressings you will find on the market: water-based and solvent based. Water-based dressings, like TyreGlow, often a milky-white liquid, should not harm rubber over time. Water-based dressings are typically a combination of naturally occurring oils and synthetic polymers that provide a very nice non-greasy, satin-like finish – very similar to the look of a new tire. TyreGlow also contains UV blocking agents to help keep tires from cracking, fading and hardening. As an added bonus, most, if not all, water-based dressings are environmentally friendly.
Solvent-based silicone dressings, often a clear, greasy, sticky liquid, leave a wet, glossy film on the tire surface. Be careful, some solvent-based dressings contain petroleum distillate solvents that, over time, may lead to premature drying and cracking of the tire surface. The difference between water and solvent-based dressings is simply in the ‘carrier’ system used. The result on the tyre is usually similar. Solvent based dressings may be prone to dust-pickup.

When it all comes down to using tire dressing on your tires, it truly depends on the consumer. TyreGlow should rarely be applied to tread because it can make the tread slippery. The tread also gets dirty quickly so applying dressing here is usually pointless, unless at a car show! This is especially important for motorcycles. Always follow manufacturers directions and wear protective gloves when applying solvent-based products. The frequency of use of TyreGlow is a
case by case situation, depending on use of vehicle.
While all of the above may sound a bit complicated, the procedure is actually quite simple and will only take a few minutes per tyre. In the end you will end up with a well protected tyre that looks like it came out of a show room! With TyreGlow, there is no faster or easier way to give tires the appearance of a professional detailing job at a fraction of the cost!
