For application I found one of these really works well: www.4wheelplay.co.uk/autoglym-perfect-palm...03865.html

Always used Autoglym Tyre Shine and have no complaints. 2011 Range Rover Sport 3.0 TDV6 HSE

I've been using this for the last 6mths .... very easy to apply and lasts for at least a week with every day driving.... brilliant stuff..took a chance on it after reading reviews on ebay.... looks like the 5ltr can will last me years.. gr8 value
They also do a gel version....

+1 on this type of stuff, the one I use is liquid, and smells like it would take the skin of your eyeballs, brush on leave and bingo new tyres and as said will last forever, I have a 2in brush and about 3 inches of liquid in a coffee jar, 30 second job to apply.

Careful some products actually cause tyres to perish, i use black boot polish and my wifes boot brush (shhh Shocked ), she keeps buying it ,i keep using it, so in effect its free tyre shine.. Rolling with laughter Rolling with laughter

Ivé been using this for the last year...

Chemical guys new look trim gel...

A little goes a long way... looks great and not too shiny.. and because it´s applied thinly not so much spray.. lasts well too

Great reviews on CYC as well

A good scrub with All Purpose Cleaner (APC) and then apply T1 (http://gtechniq.com/products/auto/perfect/exterior/paint/t1-tyre-and-trim) to a DRY tyre and you'll not be disappointed, it will last a couple of weeks even in this rubbish weather!

United Kingdom 2008 Range Rover Sport Supercharged HST Java Black

I have tried so many different potions over the years, and nothing lasts longer than a couple of weeks ...so you either do it every 2 weeks or so or I only bother for special occasions

So I just use the cheapest stuff I can find on offer in Halfords these days...some car plan I think is in the garage for the last 12 months...it lasts about ....2 weeks Wink cheers

Another T1 user here.. great stuff. Good scrub before with G101 APC gets them nice and clean.

I use one of those cheap "20p" washing up sponge / scourer things (obviously the sponge side!) to apply it to the tyre. Seems to work well.



Cheers..

I use autoglym rubber cleaner, apply it with a brush. I've tried heaps and nothing is as good as it IMO!
