Aerosol No More!
on March 11, 2011
First let me start by saying I have roughly 3/4 of the Meguiar's products made and love every one of them including this Endurance (Aerosol)Tire Dressing...BUT.....there is a major issue and it isn't just with this Aerosol, but ANY Aerosol Spray, and that is that they just don't last long! That's probably an understatement as even with a LIGHT-COATING spray on my 4 tires, HALF THE CAN WAS GONE! The NXT INSANE SHINE TIRE SPRAY is slightly bigger (a few ounces more) so I can MAYBE squeeze out 3 seperate tire applications out of it..but that's it! Now the benefit to the Aerosol cans is that they are CONVENIENT, not Messy, and QUICK! You can spray all 4 tires in a minute or two..but for $7-$10 a can...sorry Charlie...that's just a rip. Most people (myself included) work hard for their money and expect to get more then 2 applications from a tire spray. It's ridiculous to be honest. So with that being said, i'm just sticking to the Meguiar's Gels and Tire Sprays (Trigger bottles) as they go much further for the dollar, they just take more time to apply. Another benefit to the sprays & gels are that they last longer then ANY of the Aerosol tire dressings, including this one. It's been 1 week since I washed my truck and while my tires do have some shine left...I work 5 miles from work and it's freeway driving. I haven't driven over any mud or puddles, and this shine is no better nor any longer lasting then the NXT INSANE TIRE SPRAY. Both last about a week, so if you wash your vehicle weekly (like I typically do) you'll need to cans per month. That's $18-$20 a month or well over $200 a year just on tire dressing alone!! That is, if you continue to use the Aerosol cans. I love Meguiar's but I'm a little disappointed here. Yes, the product works, but it's just a major rip off to have 15oz in an Aerosol Tire Dressing can. If this can were 45oz, this product would be worthy of 5 stars. But the same goes true for the Insane Shine Tire Spray as well.
So in summary, if you're in a real rush and need a quick tire dressing, this fits the bill. But over the long haul if you take care of your ride like I do and wash it regularly, then there are much better options out there for longevity and price.
