    Any good?

    I normally use the spray on Tyre Silk by car plan. It lasts quite a long time, and is quick and easy.

    Just wondered if the Meguiars stuff is any better.

I guess you'll like it.. and oh.. smells good too.. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I agree, the best tyre stuff I have ever used!

    Get an applicator pad, you can then apply it without getting any of the stuff on your wheels, but if you do, it wipes off easily.

    It doesn't crack your tyres, doesn't 'brown' them, and it tends to last for weeks rather than days. One application will give a nice, more subtle shine and two will give a more 'showroom' finish.

    I used this tyre gel stuff again at the weekend, sporting a lovely pair of rubber gloves this time [had plenty left over from my part-time Customs & Excise work /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif].

    The tyre gel stuff has done a great job this time, even though its a bit messy. Gives the tyres that proper showroom look.

    Glad it's not just me. I mentioned it to a mate and got a "aye, er, right" response.

    How far are you supposed to go with the tyre gloss (yummy smell!) I have just done the tyre wall (just where the manufacturers name etc is), but seen a few people go all the way up to the edge of the tyre, and onto the tread.... (even the entire flat bit of the tyre) what do you guys do?

    Jo,

    Well, I went all the way up to the top of the side wall and stopped just as the tred starts. Perhaps covered about 1cm of the tred. It looked good, but I expect it would not be good if you were doing some full-on cornering. But I guess the gel would scrub off pretty quick.
