As of now I have been using the Meguiar's ultimate tire gel I think thats what its called, smells like grapes. Does very well, but still slings a little bit but protects good from sun. This black friday adam's is having a 15% off storewide sale, gonna get new shampoo, 2 new buckets with grit guards, and im thinking of trying the supervrt dressing. Anyone used this?

I was gonna buy the svrt but i seen this opti bond and its changed my mind, main reason is the price. Adam's does have some great products but some are a little pricey.
That's the reason I started looking around for an alternative. There are a lot of people on these boards who are college students, newly married with kids or just starting out in their adulthood who just can't afford to spend a lot of money on detailing supplies. Someone sent me a bottle of that Opti Bond and I gave it a try. For those of you who use SuperVRT, the first thing that you are going to notice is both products look exactly the same, in color and consistency. That was my first eyebrow raiser. Once I used it and saw what it looked like (even days later), I was sold. When I went to order some more and saw the price, I had to add it to my list of products of the 'poor man's detailer'.
Since then, I have found quite a few products to replace what I use to use based on price and performance. The products are usually equal in performance but significantly cheaper in price. Since none of us here know who is manufacturing this stuff (most boutique brands are resellers, not manufactures), I can't justify paying significantly more for a product when a similar looking and performing product is available for significantly less. Thus, I've been spreading the word.
One more thing about Opti Bond's product, a little bit goes a long way. You can dress down one tire, buff the gel in real good and sometimes do the next tire without adding any product to your applicator (depends on if you want your tires to look black or shiny). It also pays to use the same applicator over and over again. You will notice that the product never dries out in the applicator so you'll never have to prime the applicator when you go to use it again. This is great for a quick touch up and I highly suggest that you use these Opti Pro Applicators to apply the gel. Notice the price and compare that to where ever you are presently buying your applicators. They are the exact same thing that are being sold by other manufacturers but for much less. Get two of them. It's a much better deal.
