opinions requested, what type of tyre dressing do you put on yer tyres.

At the mo I have been just using a turtlewax aerosol type. Looks good for about 10 mins then just seems to dry out.

Maguiars Tyre gel works a treat, apply with a foam aplicator pad (wearing latex gloves helps keep your nails clean [:I])

Lasts for about 2weeks too[:)], & it doesnt spin off like some stuff, all up the side of your freshly waxed paint[:(]

Swissol Pneu, as it gives a natural look to the tyres and you can also use it on the rubber/plastic trim on the outside of the car.

I use Autoglym/Car brite rubbing tyre dressing...comes in 5L and you put it on with a paint brush. If you've ever had your car valeted or when you got it from stealer it was probably on the tyres.

Zymol Tyre

Or

Turtle Wax Extreme Tyre Gel

I prefer the look that the Zymol gives (natural), but the Turtle Wax seems to last longer.

I used to use Turtle Wax aerosol but didn't like the amount of overspray, even though the tyres looked good. So I bought some Autoglym Tyre Dressing a few weeks ago and it's pants! Even more overspray and doesn't make the tyres as black as the Turtle Wax one.

same for me, prefer putting it on with a brush, so it doen't go over the alloys etc, but it doesn't last long gets washed off with surface water when it's raining

also use meguiers stuff aswell[:D]

Agreed Turtle wax extreme (in the lurid green plastic bottle) is excellent.......and is better than autoglym which I used in the past. However, I clean the brake dust off my wheels and re dress them every couple of days[:O][:I]....saddo

Value for money you can't beat it particularly when Halfords do their periodic buy one get one free offer, I just stock up!

Turtle wax gel for me a bottle of the stuff seems to last for ages and when applied it is good for at least a week, you just have to make sure you rub it in well so it does not splatter the side of your car.

Oh and I dont know if anybody else has noticed but it last longer every time you apply it.
