Does anyone have a good tyre dressing they use that gives a top gloss finish without it marking the wheels or splattering the car up the sides when driven??

Autoglym Vinyl and Rybber Care, excellent for that.

Yeah have used that before, only gives top gloss shine on new tyres, not so good on older ones

Meguirs do one. It's applied using a sponge.

Better than the foam type application.

Exact same stuff I use. In foam. No spray onto wings. Wipe residue off wheels. :thumbsup:

No, this stuff sticks to the tyre wall in my experience. The "trigger-action" liquids that are usually sold as wet look tend to be the ones that spray over the wings/arches.... been through the lot. Armour All is good, a shine with not too much wetness.

suprises me that one very old trick has been missed in all the advice. Used engine oil is perfect for tyres. Wipe on with cloth and watch the fantastic results:thumbsup: Trust Charlie:dude:

The Autoglym rubber dressing has always given good results.

I use AutoGlym Instant Tyre Dressing, which does a great job. Nice finish, not too glossy. Works the same regardless of age of tyre.

I've got some turtle wax tyre dressing stuff that doesn't seem to splatter. Sensible finish as well - not all silly gloss black

I actually do like glossy tires so that's why I still stays with AG Vinyl and Rubber Care, and I only use new/good tyres. :wink3: Didn't like Turtle Wax Tyre Dressing as result was quite dull IMO.

Turtle Wax Extreme Tyre care in a green horrible looking bottle. Works very well and lasts quite a long time too.

If you want a high gloss, I'd go for the auto glym stuff , good shine but it does splat up the side.
The Zymol tyre is more for protection than enhancement , its pretty good if your car doesnt come out much ,as it helps prevent the tyre wall from cracking/perishing
