    Tyre spray/gel

    Chaps, is there any particular type to look for to keep tyres looking good?

    I had my wheels refurbed recently and its just the tyres letting the overall look down.

    I've used a gel tyre before which wasnt great.

    Any help appreciated

    I like using angel wax elixir. Speak to mark Brodie (Brodster) he will see you right.

    You can't go wrong with Elixir or the shampoo. The shampoo smells really nice.

    Megs Endurance for me too, but if you want whatever you choose to REALLY last then give the tyres a good clean with some degreaser and a brush. The key is in the preparation, same as the rest of the car
