I LOVE this product, I'm addicted to it. On the wheels at full strength is amazing and does not sling off. Snow and water... still there. Put it in a squeeze bottle to avoid wasting it.

This stuff is a detailers secret because it's such a great product for application, protection and a lasting shine which proves its durability.

PERL is a great dressing. I can not think of any cons for this item. The pros: It can be diluted for several different uses, it does not sling when used on tires. A little goes a long way. It can be used at full strength for a more glossy finish and diluted down for a more matte finish. Highly recommend!

I have used the Carpro Perl a few times now on tires. I have found that Perl does last much longer than the Gyeon Tire. I do like this product.

My buddy recommended I use this for tires. I hate shiny, greasy tires that sling nasty all over the side of my truck. PERL has solved this for me. I applied it with a yellow applicator pad and it provides a satin finish with no grease sling.

Great product. I used to use 303 Aerospace, but this has replaced it because of it's versatility. Depending on dilution, I use on tires, exterior trim, and interior.

It looks just like any other water based product. Very easy to apply but does not last, especially in wet conditions.

Keep in my arsenal along with VRP and Hyper Dressing, nice to have options. Use mostly on interior plastics, a must have.

I was not to pleased when using it as a tire dressing mixing it 1:1. However when I used it at the same ration as interior dressing it was absolutely great. I used it on a few cars and it leaves a shiny looking clean surface which I happen to like. After weeks it looks like it was just applied. Tire dressing no. Interior and rubber/ plastic trim yes.

I use other CarPro products, so was hoping for another great product here. Looks great applying a small amount on tires undiluted with a microfiber applicator and not shiny which is a plus for me. The issue is that it does not last. When the tires get wet the characteristics change for the worse. I will try it on other parts of the car that don't get wet and see how that fairs.

Tired of having a dull plastic interior? Perl will revive the old faded plastics and give an absolute great protection and look. Very easy to use! Produces a matte finish that most of my customers prefer.

If you like to have your rubber and plastic shiny, but not too shiny, PEARL is for you. I hate how cheesy most tire gel or plastic shine looks. PEARL is pretty viscous, but applies easily. It seems to protect my tires and plastic pretty well and stays on for several weeks if you apply it to a clean surface. I like this and will buy it again!

Pro: easy to apply. Shine is just fair to OK
Con: Doesn't last. Looks horrible after a rain. Shine is just fair to OK

So far I've used this on my interior leather / vinyl (diluted 5:1) and on tires (diluted 1:1). I would say it performs well. Adds a nice shine, and you don't need to use a lot of it at a time. On the margin I think working with a thicker liquid or gel would be a slightly less messy process, but I've been happy with the results of PERL so no complaints!

Run away from this product!! I have used many CarPro products and have always been satisfied…until I used PERL. I applied it to clean and dry tires, undiluted, on both my Mercedes and Lexus. The shine was great and it didn't sling off. However, after driving the cars in the rain, the tire gloss turned a white/grey color, making it look like I had driven the cars down a dirt road. I had to use full strength degreaser and a pressure washer to get this dressing off of the tires. After driving in the rain again the white/grey look is back!!! I keep trying to clean this mess off my tires, but nothing is working!! BUYER BEWARE!

Pros - great shine
Cons - turns white after driving in the rain.

My new go to tire dressing. I used it undiluted and 1:1. I like it either way. The undiluted application has more pop and the 1:1 a tad more subdued. Just be sure and clean the tires of all other dressings for best results. I will update as time goes on for longevity.

I really like PERL by CarPro. Once again, another QUALITY product from the gang at CarPro. I really like all of their products and the one thing I can always say about everything that CarPro makes is that it is TOP NOTCH. You do pay a little bit more, but as they say, a little goes a LONG WAY. That is true with all CarPro products. Plastic-Engine-Rubber-Leather (PERL) protectant imparts a natural sheen on your tires or other vinyl, leather, and similar surfaces and the thing I like about it is that it looks natural depending on how you dilute the product. I tend to use it full strength which is a lot more shine than if you dilute it a little and I apply it with a microfiber applicator and then follow up by buffing the surface with a microfiber towel which knocks down the shine a little to a more natural sheen. That works well for me. You only need to use a small amount of product and buff it into the surface you are cleaning/protecting. Wait a short period of time, buff away excess, you have a natural appearance that lasts! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROTECTANT.
