Collection: Tyre & Trim Dressing

Tire and trim dressing is a product used to enhance the appearance of your vehicle's tires and exterior trim. It provides a dark and shiny finish, while also helping to protect these surfaces from UV rays and environmental contaminants. Applying tire and trim dressing can give your vehicle a well-maintained and polished look. Here's how to properly apply tire and trim dressing:

Materials You'll Need:

  • Tire and trim dressing product
  • Applicator pad or brush
  • Microfiber cloth
  • Protective gloves (optional)


  1. Clean the Surfaces: Before applying tire and trim dressing, make sure the surfaces are clean and dry. If you're dressing your tires, wash them thoroughly to remove dirt, grime, and old dressing residue. For trim, wipe it down with a damp microfiber cloth to remove dust and debris.
  2. Choose the Right Product: Select a high-quality tire and trim dressing product that suits your preference. Some products offer a high-gloss shine, while others provide a more subtle or matte finish. Read the product label for any specific instructions or recommendations.
  3. Prepare the Applicator: Depending on the product, you can use an applicator pad, foam brush, or foam applicator sponge. Some products even come in an aerosol spray format. Choose the applicator that you find most comfortable and effective.
  4. Apply the Dressing:
  5. Avoid Excess: It's better to start with a conservative amount of dressing and build up if needed. Excessive application can lead to sling (tire dressing being flung onto the car's body while driving) and uneven, greasy surfaces.
  6. Buff and Wipe Off Excess: Allow the dressing to sit for a few minutes to penetrate and set. Then, use a clean microfiber cloth to gently buff and wipe off any excess dressing. This step helps achieve a more uniform and natural-looking finish.
  7. Check for Sling: If you've dressed your tires, take your car for a short drive to check for any sling. If you notice sling, it means there's still excess dressing on the tires. Wipe off the excess with a clean cloth.
  8. Interior Trim (Optional): Some dressing products are suitable for interior trim as well. Follow similar steps to apply dressing to interior plastic or vinyl trim, enhancing its appearance and protection.
  9. Maintain Regularly: Tire and trim dressing will wear off over time due to exposure to the elements and driving conditions. Reapply dressing as needed to maintain the desired look and protection.

Remember that excessive application of tire and trim dressing can lead to an overly shiny and greasy appearance, which might attract dirt and create a mess. Aim for a clean, natural-looking finish that enhances your vehicle's appearance without being overdone. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific product you're using.
