I really needed some meguiars endurance tire gel, ive been out for several weeks. So i went to the auto store to pick some up. Its been at least 6 months since i bought a bottle, but i was very surprised to see it was only $3. For some reason i was thinking it was $6 or $7. Its the same size purple bottle. Have the prices on this thing gone down?? Or did i get lucky?

I think I paid like $8 for it back in May. Now that I've used it, I don't think I'd even pay $1. I liked it at first, but the more I used it the less I liked it. Maybe it's all those grooves on the Contis. :dunno:

My beef with it, is that it stays slippery FOREVER. There is nearly no way to get it to come off.

Now for some this may be a positive, but if you just want to chalk your tires for autocross, chalk won't stick to the goo.

Autocross events for me are available every 1-2 weeks, even between seasons it's a max of 4 weeks.

So waiting 2 months for the gel to wear off isn't a good thing.

(Yes forever wasn't intended to be taken litterally, WEEKS is.)

I'm personal sick of having to apply gel. I use the Tire Wet Gel. I ended up getting a set of Tire Wet Wipes 25 in a tube for like 4 bucks. I'm going to try it on the next wash. The gel would take me a good 10 minutes to apply to all 4 tires and 4 paper towels..... I might just go back to spray on if this wipe is a pain.
