Tyre shine gels

Hello

Can anyone recommend me a good tyre shine gel? I used to use Turtle Wax extreme nano tech tyre gel (green bottle). It was great stuff but i think its been discontinued. I would prefer a gel rather than spray as i find them messy to apply. I've used Autoglym tyre dressing before, good stuff but messy to apply and oversprayed all over the paintwork and windows.

Thanks

Phil

Re: Tyre shine gels

No need to spend that much Carplan Tyre Silk or Simoniz Back to Black Gel is the best things I have ever used. FACT.

Re: Tyre shine gels

I have recently started using the Meguiars one and can vouch for how little you need and how long it lasts. It may not be the cheapest product but I suspect that in the long run it is pretty hard to beat.

Re: Tyre shine gels

theres only 1 decent tyre gel, and thats meguiars endurance, 10 from halfords and will last ages

best way to apply, pop to your local supermarket, buy a 'car washing' sponge for 30p and cut it into 3, maybe 4

job done! :-)

Re: Tyre shine gels

+1 for Meguiars Endurance gel. Apply thinly with a sponge, leave for 30 mins, then buff excess.

Valet Pro also do a very good range and Dionysus Trim Glitz outlasts the Meguiars offering in my experience.
