Turtle Wax Extreme Gel is good. However, don;t spray what you have got now. Get a small sponge, spray it onto the sponge and sponge it onto the tyre sidewalls. You also get a more even finish doing it this way as the sprays tend to run.

I've only tried two types, one was a turtle wax tyre shine and the second the turtle wax extreme gel, the gel seemed to last a bit longer and gave the same shine, so from those 2 yes, but I don't know about other makes.

I'm currently using the new Turtle Wax (I know I know!!) Platinum Series (dark green bottle). It's really good stuff and last ages. It gives a nice subtle shine.

I use this as well, put a blob onto a cloth and give it a rub around, works a treat for that nice wet look.

Sounds like the gel is better then !
It is IMO, apply with a sponge and I should look a treat,

Try using a pan scouring sponge with the green rough bit cut off, I use them for appling tyre shine and the back to black stuff for the mudflaps and valences. Just don't do what a mate did once, he thought the green rough bit would be ideal to get the fly remains off the bonnet of his Vauxhall![:(]

Yikes!
