Optimum Tire Protection & Coating Review

Recommended Posts

i’ve never used Tire Coatings.  Optimum is one of my favorite brands, so when they announced a coating for Tires I wanted to try it.

Too cold to do this outside today so I did it in my garage after a quick ONR wash.  My wife’s 2015 Tahoe has about 40k miles on the original tires, we will replace them shortly.  I wanted to try both 1 coat and 2 coat application

 

Front Tires = 1 coat (satin)

Rear Tires = 2 coats (glazed donut)

 

Prep :  Scrubbed with PowerClean 100%, non diluted..  Rinsed with pump sprayer.  Scrubbed with Optimum Power Clean rinsed, repeat Power Clean.  Dry very well.

Consistency : It’s the same consistency as ONR, very liquidy, not like Opti bond.

Goes on and turns a blue/purple color.  After about 5 minutes it turns clear.  For the back tires I waited 30 mins and applied a 2nd coat.

Picture included below  is the results

I’ll follow up with my thoughts in the comments over time.

Nice "straight to the point" review

I cant decide which look I prefer...both are nice...maybe the 2 coats look better (it stands out)!

Quick question for whomever may know.  

My other car I did 1 coat all around, and now I think I want to go to 2coats.  Can I just clean with PowerClean and redcoat or will it not adhere to the 1st coat?

I haven't gotten an answer from Yvan or Dann (traveling) but my guess is just clean with Power Clean and apply a second coat.

I too was strugling with this. Eventually the tire will get dirty so people will have too clean it with something right?

So does using PC remove the coating? If not then what does?

I'm guessing normal wear and tear, washing over time, etc.  According to Yvan he's got 6 months + so far...
