Father's Day Review: Dodo Juice Supernatural Tyre Dressing

Dodo Juice Supernatural Tyre Dressing 250ml is a newer offering from the boys in the UK. Like all "Supernatural" brand products from Dodo Juice, Supernatural is void any artificial ingredients, scents, or bulking agents. Everything in the bottle is in there for performance, hence the moniker "natural" in the phrasing.

Dodo Juice Supernatural Tyre dressing comes in the standard 250ml bottle with a flip top, wrapped in the slighly funky, but extremely attractive Supernatural packaging. As expected this dressing has no scent.

Copy from Autopia-CarCare.com

Gives tires a super dark, natural shine!
  • Perfect for rubber and vinyl trim
  • Long lasting water-based formula
  • Will not sling on the paint

Dodo Juice Supernatural Tyre Dressing is a solvent free, water-based formula that imparts a dark, mid-gloss sheen on tires, vinyl, and rubber. Like all Supernatural products you won't find fruity scents or extra additives, just a high concentration of the active ingredients. Dodo Juice Supernatural Tyre Dressing leaves behind a finish that is slick, dry, and non-sticky, making the surface less likely to attract dirt and dust than traditional 'wet' dressings.

Supernatural Tyre Dressing is good for your tires. There are no harsh solvents or inexpensive silicons. Instead Dodo Juice fortified Supernatural Tyre Dressing with water-based conditioners that dry to the touch and do not sling over your fenders. For the absolute best results clean your tires thoroughly using a dedicated tire cleaner such as BLACKFIRE Total Eclipse Tire & Wheel Cleaner. Apply a small amount with a Tire Dressing Pad or soft applicator and work into the tire. Momentarily allow to cure, then buff with a soft cloth until a satin shine is achieved.



A Little Help From My Son

Being that Father's Day is around the corner (for those who missed it, Autopia-CarCare is celebrating with 15% off and free shipping over $125) I enlisted the help of my son, Devin.

Devin has been my assistant for for almost 4 of his 8 years and he jumped at the chance to be on the internet.


Getting Started

Dodojuice is very specific in mentioning that Supernatural Tyre Dressing will perform best when applied to a clean ti(y)re. I thought it would be fun to put the Torandor BLACK to work (as suggested earlier today on the forum) and mixed up a light dilution of BLACKFIRE Total Eclipse Tire & Wheel Cleaner (about 10:1) for use in the Torandor BLACK.




The Tornador BLACK is a high volume, high pressure version of the Tornador Cleaning Guns and requires a steady state of almost 90 PSI for best use. Make sure your air compressor can keep up! The mint green color of diluted BLACKFIRE Total Eclipse Tire & Wheel Cleaner.




Like a GI Joe ready for battle against rode grime and brake dust, Devin grabbed his weapon (and barely contained the smile on his face). Just like grown-men, kids love to play with anything that "shoot's stuff".




Ready, aim, fire!




The power of the Torandor BLACK combined with gentle cleaning action of BLACKFIRE Total Eclipse Tire & Wheel Cleaner blasted any grime and dirt from the wheel quickly.






Dev grabbed a All Purpose & Wheel Detailing Microfiber Towel and wiped the tire and rim dry.




A piece of 3M Masking Tape seperated the tire for a more accurate before and after picture. You can see how clean the tire is after the quick blast.




Applying Supernatural Tyre Dressing




It is always a good idea to shake a water based product before use. I am proud to report that Supernatural Tyre Dressing is well-packaged... It withstood the spastic shaking of a determined 8 year old with out leaking so much as a drop!




Devin wanted to use a new tire applicator, I assured him it was okay as "Uncle Max" was paying for it.




Supernatural Tyre Dressing has a thin constancy. It dripped out of the bottle once inverted, and a light squeeze of ensured plenty of product.




This dressing applies extremely easily with no streaking, smears, or uneven (heavy) patches. It glides on to the tire and your done. That's it for the application! So easy an 8 year old can do it (literally).




From the Dodo's mouth: "Apply a small amount with a Tire Dressing Pad or soft applicator and work into the tire. Momentarily allow to cure, then buff with a soft cloth until a satin shine is achieved."

We left Supernatural Tyre Dressing to cure for about 1 minute then buffed offed any residue with a clean All Purpose & Wheel Detailing Microfiber Towel.




Removing the tape...




The Look



The look was GREAT! The tire was noticeably darker, with just a hint of sheen. I would call it "rich". This is the look that many of us strive for. Best of all Supernatural Tyre Dressing was so easy to apply and dried with out ANY streaking! It really couldn't have been easier.

In fact, Supernatural Tyre Dressing worked so well that I got an unsolicted thumb's up from the little man. Thumb's ups have apparently gone the way of fist-bumps, pet rocks, bell bottoms, and, err, well the Dodo bird. So when an eight year old fires that opposable digit skyward, you know you are dealing with a great product.

Have you used your torandor black much? Have you done a review of it? Was thinking of getting one.

I have used it, I haven't done a formal review yet. It is extremely powerful and works extremely well. You need make sure your air compressor can produce 90 psi steady for best results though.

A man after my own heart! You cannot have too much horsepower and you cannot have too much compressed air!


As a side, here are the tires after 240 miles and a rain storm[
