My full time car came with a nice big bag of BMW protect items.

I was looking at the BMW tyre shine and it says on there it should only be used 3 to 4 times a year.

When I collect my Spider this saturday I want to try to keep it in as close to showroom as possible which would have included tyre shine twice a month.

Does any one know why it should only be used 3 to 4 times a year or is the more general "off the shelf" stuff OK to use regularly or and its just be the BMW product that shouldn't be used that often?

:confused:

I used the tyre dressing from power maxed and thats jusy regular use as far as i know, not heard of not being able to use a tyre dressing on a regular basis,

It doesnt dry it out or get absorbed by it so thats a wierd one

Just guessing, maybe some strong solvents which the rubber would not like. Strange that a major firm would sell something which may not be good for tyres. BMW used to rebottle Sonax and Dr OK Wack stuff and these were high quality and safe products

OK I used the BMW Tyre spray (which looks pretty good and was very easy to apply) but I will get some of the general stuff for regular use.
