Briliant Rubber Cleaner and Tyre Gloss

Post by David@DDB » Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:32 pm

Bought some of this off Mike at The Polishing company, he's stocking a good range of their products, bought the trim gel weeks ago and all I can say is that is awesome so I had high hopes for the tyre gloss.

The products. So new not even a proper label on them yet. :wink:

The process.

Wet Tyres and then sprayed with the rubber cleaner.

Agitated with a hard brush, only one I had hard enough but did the job, I reckon would be easier with a had nailbrush etc.
Image

Rinsed with hose, at this point a load of brown gunk and muck came off the surface of the tyre.
Image

Tyres dried with a MF and left to air dry awaiting application of the Tyre Gloss, tyre at this point is definitely cleaner.
Image

Tyre gloss apllied with a sponge applicator and worked into the surface of the tyre.

The finished article.

This is a great product, with bold claims of lasting weeks and through rain etc. The overall shine is similar to that of the Megs Endurance I usually use, but there is no slimy residue at all on the tyre, they have a nice shine and are almost dry to the touch. I will update this thread as they progress over the enxt few weeks.

Thanks for reading, hope this is of some use to someone.

And yes I know I need some new discs and my wheels refurbing,lol. :lol:

Cheers Paul, I am thinking of new wheels, just need to decide which ones, so they will be staying as winter wheels, may refurb them myself while they are off the car.

This stuff looks intresting. Wouldn't mind giving it a go and comparing it against the g101 I am using at the moment?

This thread reminds me - I need a nail brush to get in and clean properly!

I also agree with you on the endurance gel Dave - it looks great but goes on like golden syrup and flags onto your tyres as such! Mean I have ruinied many a tyre scrubber as I can the the stuff off them?

Anyone else have this problem?

I have also bought some Zaino as I had seen this used a while ago and it seemed to sink in to the tyre better (actually got great beading too! :shock:)

Looks good, nice review :D

I never really liked Meg's Endurance; I found it very 'sloppy' and required too much buffing down on certain tyres to prevent any sling off, it also seemed to attract dirt to the tyres really well :!: I much prefer dressings in a liquid form as these can be quickly and easily applied with a paint brush, I spray a little on a paint brush and apply thinly to the tyre.

Interesting products you've reviewed there David.

Like others I'll be very keen to read your update in a few weeks time, to see if the makers bold claims are indeed just that :lol:

Kind Regards.

Paul.

Washed the VW today, it's done about 150 miles and been out in the rain earlier in the week since I applied the Briliant tyre gloss. Wheels have been washed with megs wheel brightener and car snow foamed etc as normal.

All I've done with the tyres is wipe them dry and this is the result.
