I just want to know your thoughts on tyre dressings. I currently use the "Auto Glym Tyre Dressing", only because its the best I've used.

I have used the Wonder Wheels tyre dressing (the one you use the applicator sponge)and found it a nightmare. A few weeks after using it I wanted to clean the tyres from mud using a srubbing brush, which ended up black and ruined. So never again!

What are your thoughts on tyre dressings?

I use Car Plan "wet look" tyre slick which comes in an aerosol and lasts for quite a long time.

Well impressed with it.

Doesn't anybody else find that this stuff makes the edges of your tyres slippery and prone to breakin grip when cornerin slightly fast until its worn off a bit??

Almost lost my 306 GTI-6 due to this!![:O][:O]

Or am I just drivin to fast??

Haven't used it on my Anni yet!!

I always thought Autoglym stuff was PANTS, cause it always made such a mess - that is until last year this AutoGlym bloke showed me the way it's supposed to be done!

A flick of the wrist makes the world of difference [;)]

So yeah, AutoGlym gets my vote!

The williams stuff that you get in Halfords is pretty good - but rather than spraying it on which makes it end up all over the alloys I tip some in a aerosol lid and paint it on with an old brush.

I use the real stuff, need a paint brush to put it on.

Jimbo - I doubt it was tyre dressing making you slip, any bit of it that comes into contact with the road will wear off straight away.

Comes in drums of at least 5L, your stealer will use it on your new car before you get it or when you get it professionally valeted.

I use either the SWISSOL Pneu, or the AutoSmart Tyre Dandy, which ever I have to hand. Can use the Pneu on the exterior rubber and plastics as well, and it leaves a matte finish whereas the Tyre Dandy is more shiny.
