    What do you used to for tire dressing?

    I am looking for something shiny but not high gloss which is easy to apply and does not splatter while driving. I have tried Mcquiers (?) 3M and One Grand. Of the three Mcquiers(?) seems to be the best but not great.

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    autoglym instant tyre dressing is a good one to use!

    it soaks in the rubber and doesnt leave a greasy feel..

    also the turtlewax tyre shine works just aswell...

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    I use Griots, and like the way it looks, not high gloss, and no splatter...just let it dry before driving right away.

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    Sorry guys, but I can't stand tire dressing. Every time it is used, it ends up all over the side of the car as dressing mixed with brake dust. It just looks terrible and drives me crazy after spending the time to clean it. I just use a brush to clean the tires and go with that.

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    Dan you need to wash the tire and wheel before applying the dressing. Splattering occurs when too much is used or using an inferior product. Does Griot make their own or do they buy from a vendor and relabel similar to kenmore?

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    Just try the "natural shine vinyl & rubber protectant" from "MEGUIAR's. I think it's much better than the special tyre product from them.

    Nick,

    I recommend using Mothers Reflections line of tire dressing. It's the most natural shine I've used, especially from the Mothers line. Mothers has a different model line (FX) which has super shiny high gloss...but IMO super shiny looks ghetto and belongs on 22" Escalade rim/wheel combos.

    I like the natural look as if it were still in the dealership. Try the Reflections line, I think you'll like it -- also available at many local stores.

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    I bought and applied Autoglm becaue several people recommended it. It is somewhat messy to apply (you spray it on but it runs all over the tire and wheel) but it does have a nice shine. Now I must determine whether it splatters and its longevity.

    BTW while in the store I did see Mother's Reflection and wondered how good it was. Had not seen it before. It is on my list to determine whether what will be Ferrari worthy.

    Try Adams VTR....I have tried everything for detailing, and I like
    Adams products more than anything. The VTR (Vinyl Tire Rubber) has no silicone, will not crack or dull, is easy to use, and, the best part is it will last for about a month.

    Re: What do you used to for tire dressing?

    I'm amused to see such diligence in the choice of tyre conditioner

    Clearly nothing is good enough for a Ferrari, Nick

    However for England at the moment I find it impossible to get away from my no choice combination of Salt Mud and Farmyard relics which extend not only to the tyres but everywhere elese especially where you can't reach with a brush, sponge or hose!!!

    My Basalt Black car often has a three tone look with the top relatively Black, the middle section in a brownish colour and the rearand lower doors in Salty White

    Roll on the Summer rain! For what it's worth, in my experience Autoglym is only OK if you wipe of the surplus and go matt black because if you don't it comes off and what doesn't attracts brake dust which makes the tyres brown
