Mer..leaves a more matt finish. I am not a fan of the ''shiney tyre'' look

I use a spray on one, it's OK apart from spraying back and leaving a residue down the side of the car. Do the gels do the same?

Re: Best Tyre Blacker/Wet Look stuff?

Get a foam aplicator thing, any type will do.....or even an old sponge, spray any tyre shine onto tyre or sponge and wipe on to give a more natural looking clean shine and it shouldn't splatter onto car!
