Tested: Meguiar's Mirror Bright Vinyl and Rubber Treatment
We usually don't get excited enough about car care products to write about them, but every once and awhile, we get something in the mail that gets our attention. Tire treatments are something we could usually care less about. The market is saturated with all sorts of goop to put on tires.
All of the staffers here hate the look that tire treatments give, the super glossy wet shiny look that looks like drippy Jeri Curl 80's hair. You know the stuff that attracts dirt and turns brown in a week and is gross to scrub off later.
Every year when we met with the guys at Meguiars at a SEMA industry conference they asked us for product feedback and we told them we would like a JDM Squash air freshener and a tire treatment that was not glossy and gross but would simply blacken faded tires to give them the matt look of a new tire, not a shined up wet tire.
Well, Meguiares listened and gave us the JDM Squash air freshener. Recently a package arrived in the mail and it contained a new tire dressing for us to try, Meguiars Mirror Bright Vinyl and Rubber Treatment. The guys at Meguiars told us that this is the non-glossy dressing we were looking for!
Ok so this is not horribly technical, you first spray a pretty generous portion of Mirror Bright on your tires and let it sit for a few minutes. The Mirror Bright immediately starts to go to work, dissolving and lifting off the brown crap.
So Mirror Bright is fast and simple to use, looks great and even cleans off the yucky brown stuff. What more could you ask for in a tire treatment? Well, it also works well on any rubber or plastic part like dashboards, door panels and moldings giving them a dark matt look that simply looks like a new part. This is a product that has been a long time coming! If you like to keep your car looking good, this is something that is a must try.
