Car Tyre Dressing

Maintaining car tyres is important for ensuring road safety and prolonging the life of the tyres. Tyres that are dirty and worn out can lead to earlier replacement than may have been necessary. Using a tyre cleaner is essential, just like the rest of the car, regular maintaining will improve not only the appearance but also maintain the integrity. The contamination found on the wheel and the arch liners will also be found on the tyres, something that needs to be removed before any tyre dressings can be applied.

Professional detailers use dedicated tyre cleaners to avoid damaging the tyres with harsh chemicals that may be present in wheel cleaners. It is also essential to note that there is a difference between tyre cleaners and wheel cleaners. Wheel cleaners contain harsher chemicals that can cause damage to the tyre if used directly or too often on them. A little run over is not an issue, but direct use and scrubbing would cause unnecessary wear and tear.

Dull looking tyres can really ruin a car wash or detailing job. With such an easy fix, your car can go from a 6 to a 10. The wheels are always a focal point on any car, and yet so many of us spend hours cleaning them and protecting them, but do nothing to the tyre surrounding them.

Tyre dressing products offer a high gloss, wet-look or satin finish for a car tyre. Tyre dressings will complement the natural sheen of rubber and are available in a spray or wipe form. With such easy steps to make your tyres look new again, and a variety of finishes and applications to meet your needs; take a look at Meguiars Endurance for one of the most popular high shine finishes or Sansom Voodoo Creme for a more natural end product.

What should I apply a tyre dressing with?

  • A tyre dressing brush or tyre dressing applicator offers comfortable and even application for whatever the tyre dressing you have chosen. Keep them stored in a ziplock bag or container to stop them drying out and use them again and again.


How long do tyre dressings last?

  • Many tyre dressings will last just a few weeks due to the build up or traffic film around the wheels and the cleaners needed to remove them. It is important to give the tyres a good clean to prevent the build up of old tainted tyre dressings. A car tyre cleaner will help to remove traffic film, dirt, and grime from your tyre. Using a tyre cleaning spray with an accessory, such as a brush, prepares the surface for a tyre dressing. Working a tyre cleaner spray like this over the surface ensures a dressing will bond to the surface.


Is it necessary to put dressing on tires?

  • Regular cleaning and dressing of your car tyres improves the appearance and prolongs the tyre life. Remember, Tyres dressed will protect against road grime, UV degradation and waterborne contamination. Only if used with a well-prepared surface and following correct application instructions by the manufacturer.
