Finding a high-quality car tire dressing may be hard in the sea of different products. Some of them are great but don’t last long, and vice versa. My friend recommended me a GYEON Quartz Q2 Tire product, and I had to try it.
I bought this GYEON Quartz Q2 Tire Shine a month ago. I didn’t want to write about it until I see the results. Now, four weeks and three washes later, I’m ready to share with you my deep and honest review of it.
I’m writing a thorough review of this product, and I’ll also share some secrets to increase the longevity and durability even more, so make sure to read the whole article.
GYEON Q2 Tire Shine: My Review
Tire shine is the second GYEON product I’m reviewing, and I have to tell you that I’m delighted with the quality of their products for now. A few days back, I wrote a GYEON Car Glass Cleaner review, so make sure to check it out too.
Q² Tire dressing is the first and only SiO₂ (silicone dioxide) based tire coating. It’s specifically designed to last longer and to give tires a brand new wet look.
It also protects them from UV rays and other external factors. So, your tires are protected and may last longer.
The important thing for this review is that I’m not keeping my car in the garage, and it’s a daily car, so I drive it every day. And even that way, it lasts long enough.
Ease of Application
This tire gel is very easy to apply. It’s neither too thick nor too rare. Spreading it across the tires is easy, and tires absorb it quickly so that it won’t sling on your car panels.
It’s almost completely dry after only a few minutes so that it won’t spread during the ride.
I was applying it with a dedicated GYEON tire applicator, and it’s also my recommendation for you.
In order to last long, this tire dressing requires a thorough tire wash, so make sure to learn the proper way of cleaning your wheels and tires (check my guide here).
When it comes to durability, this is what amazes me the most. In my experience, this product will last anywhere from 3-4 weeks. That’s great since most other products last up to 10 days only.
The first time, I applied it to tires four weeks ago. Then, in between, I washed the car twice but didn’t apply the tire dressing again.
Today, I rewashed the car, and the tires still looked pretty nice. Like there was still dressing on them.
After applying the dressing to the tires today, I’m again amazed at its shine and appearance.
They’re promoting even more than five washes, but I reapplied after three washes since I want that wet look even though tires still looked great.
The shine of this GYEON Q2 Tire dressing is tremendous. After application, tires look like new ones and even better.
It’s improving their appearance, and they’ll stand out a lot. I like that it’s not the black color, so it’s not painting the tires to make them look brand new.
In my opinion, it’s adding just enough shine to the tires. I’m a fan of the wet tires look, and this product is what I needed.
After the application, if you want a more matte look, heat the tires with a heat gun a little bit (or let the car sit in the sunlight for 15 min), and it’ll increase the durability and make them look more matte.
However, if you want even more shine, you can apply this product twice on the tires, and the shine level will increase.
The bottle is 400ml, and they’re promoting that you need around 10-15ml per set of tires.
In my experience, that’s true, so they’re not lying. However, if you’ll layer it and apply it twice on the tires, expect to spend around 20-25ml per set.
With that said, you can dress the tires of around 25 to 30 cars if you apply it once. However, if you use it twice per tire, it should be enough to dress the tires of approximately 16-18 vehicles.
If you’re detailing only your vehicle, you should have it for more than a year and a half if you apply the product once per month. In my opinion, that’s a fantastic investment.
How To Apply Q2 Tire Dressing?
Basically, the steps for applying GYEON tire dressing are the same as with any other tire shine out there.
- Wash and Dry Tires – to properly apply GYEON Q2 tire dressing, you should thoroughly wash your tires. For that, make sure to use a high-quality wheel cleaner, agitate them with a brush, and then rinse with a pressure washer. After washing, dry the tires.
- Pour Gel To Applicator Pad – pour a little bit of tire dressing into the applicator pad. Make sure not to use too much product. You can always re-coat if you think there’s not enough dressing.
- Spread The Gel – work the gel into the tire by evenly spreading it with an applicator pad.
- Remove Excess – If there’s any excess on wheels or somewhere else, wipe that off.
- Let Dry – Allow the dressing to dry completely. Something around 15 minutes should be enough.
BONUS TIP 1: To prolong the durability of the dressing, heat the surface tire wall with a heat gun or with a hairdryer and then apply the dressing. The result is a more matte finish and better longevity.
BONUS TIP 2: If you want even shinier tires, let the dressing completely dries, and apply one more coat of it. That’ll give your tires the best possible shine and will also increase longevity.
Final Verdict – Is It Worth It?
If you ask me if GYEON Q2 Tire Dressing worth it, YES, it is. It’s a bit more expensive than most other similar products, but the price is justified.
The level of shine and the durability are two things that make me want to repurchase this tire dressing.
If you own a car detailing business, maybe you won’t have the best ROI with this product. However, if you’re detailing your vehicle only and want the best vehicle appearance, you should try it out.
