I bought a pair and didn't like them. I found I could apply easier with foam or MF app. I guess it's all a personal pref.

I've put a pair in my cart to test out on my next order. Currently using the block and like it but some tires would be alot easier to have a brush for.

I really like mine, they get dressing into the pattern on the sidewall better than anything else I've used, especially near the tread.

I use mine with PB B&B gel and also with Tuf Shine Sealant.

For me they hold up much better than foam.

Highly recommended.

I found one at Big Lots for $1.50 so I tried it. Not that impressed. I still prefer the foam applicator.

I use Sonus Tire & Bumper Dressing Gel and foam applicators. I didn't care for these brushes at all. I think part of it is what tire dressing you use.

Just an addendum to the review: still my go to for thick or gel dressings; for sprays, I still use foam. Just don't use sprays as often anymore.

Thanks for the review. This looks like it will work pretty good with opti-Bond tire gel for tires that are not smooth and have all the ridges.
