How does this product react to light sand and grass?

Do small particles get stuck on the side wall?

I usually prefer a high gloss product like Black magic Tire Gel; however, the only down side to it is particulates can become stuck to it.

No ......the sidewall develops a slick, smooth surface, but does not gloss,it just looks new. I haven't had anything stick to it in the 2.5 months I've had it on. Here's a pic at about 2.5 months…

Glen, when you use this tire coat how do you apply? Should it be applied/worked in with an applicator tool/pad?

Ps that pic is great, thanks! Your tires look amazing!

What specific product is this?

Their website isn't very good at describing their products, but I understand they are going to be updating it soon.

Great customer service from this company, so I'm interested to try out some of their other stuff - their tire dressing is pretty good.

Not a current fan of Reload on black cars, so looking for an alternative. The more I look, the more I think I see high spots. Even where I removed and re-applied with microfiber applicator, but that's a subject for another thread.

New reload? I don't have a problem now but the old stuff before they had before re formulating, was TERRIBLE. I had to polish it off my Bette it was so bad from high spots..

Yes, new Reload, based on the sticker on the bottom of the bottle. It worked great on my Red Colorado and my wife's Dark Blue Rogue. Color of the Vette?
