Received my ADAM's Super VRT

One word-- Amazing! Now it's raining hard so I like to see how it holds up. That's all folks!

That's my favorite tire dressing, it gives a smooth shine and doesn't dry out the tires. I'll be honest though, it kinda sucks on trim. I've tried it multiple times on different cars and it just always looks like a greasy mess that comes off after the first wash.

Nice. This is seriously good stuff. One of the best dressings I've ever used.

Lol, there's a few out there, I'm sure. Just makes it all the more higher praise when I say SVRT is one of the best, because I have compared it to LOTS.

Can I ask if you cleaned off all the old dressing first? Using something like Adam's All Purpose Cleaner and a Utility Towel to scrub off the old dressing and contamination will really help in making sure that SVRT stays where it should.

Keep in mind too, that some trim is going to respond better to In and Out Spray over SVRT, and vice versa.

I have not tried In and Out Spray yet but I'm curious how it stacks up to some other brands i've tried. I did a general cleaning of the trims before the VRT. I'll give it a bit more work with the APC next time and see if its better.

Adam's In and Out Spray is PERFECT for your grilles and lower fascia area, like your foglight pockets.

What he said.
Been around the block and SVRT just plain works great.

I agree it made it look kind of messy and attracted lint and dust...

But does Adams sell the regular VRT anymore? That's what I have and I applied some (just like in the videos) a night before a car show...drove an hour and a half to the show and looked like I didn't even clean the tires it looked terrible....I think my Adams tire and Fender brush is on its last leg..because something's not adding up....it's a garage queen and the VRT barely lasts....don't get me wrong I love me sum Adams just need some help
