Time to purchase some new stuff.

Coming to the end of my tyre dressing and before i buy some new stuff would like some recommendations. I not keen on the spray bottles and like the finish to be more a satin than high gloss. Oh and preferebly it'll last more than 2minutes unlike the turtle wax stuff i'm on now!

Cheers.

Megs Tyre Endurance Gel is an old favourite. It's as glossy as you want it to be.

Chemical Guys New Look Trim Gel. This stuff is amazing and can also be used on any plastics and trim inside and out. The amount needed to do the car once including interior/exterior and tyres is minute therefore it will last for well over a year imo. Ive had mine for 2-3 months and its only an inch down if that and im always slapping too much on my tyres

Phil, surely that stuff should have sorted out your white marks on your trim instead of having to resort to peanut oil?

Nope, it does make them black as owt but everytime it wears off its hello whiteness........until the nut oil Its still holding up and i havnt washed for nearly 2 weeks now! Its raining outside and im off to tunisia 2mrw so the poor car might not get a look in! More to clean when i get back I can try my Bilt Hamber toffee then!

AG's instant tyre dressing for me

It's a trigger spray so I spray it on a non-stick pan cleaner and then apply it to the tyres. Lasts well and the shine is just right

Mothers Reflections Advanced Tire Care is my current product for this and I always spray direct onto sponge applicator and not tyre..... it works great and lasts well.
