Autoglym Tyre Shine. Just spray it on and walk away... Come back later and wipe it off for the desired effect.

I did use the Meguiars stuff, but that involved moving the car backwards and forwards to cover all the side wall of the tyres to my OCD standard...

Have used the autoglym tyre stuff before, will try the meguiars, sounds like it'll match my levels of OCD. I have both swissvax and britemax for the plastics.

When I bother to do it, I use Meguiars (it's purple). Its the only meguiars I bother with as it lasts for ages and doesn't put a 'straight from a second hand car dealer' type shine on it, just a nice deep black matt effect. It stays black on the tyres for ages too, it's certainly one of the more expensive ones out there, but it's worth it! 1 bottle will literally last years!

The autoglym one is good too, but unlike the rest of their range, it doesn't seem to last very long. It is very easy to do though!

I use halfords trade tyre silk stuff it's ok but doesn't last long at all comes in a big bottle though

I want to find out what MINI use on their cars as when I picked up my f56 the tyres looked amazing and it's lasted two weeks so great stuff whatever it is, I'll post when I find out!

As this post is quite old is anyone now using anything new that's come out since ?

I've got a couple of different bottles, I like the Auto finesse one, you can apply when the wheels are still wet (unlike some of the others) which is handy as I usually forget once I've finished the clean Very Happy

I found with silver wheels it wasn't too bad not dressing the tyres but with gloss black wheels the tyres look more grey! I've also noticed some tyres look blacker than others..

I would imagine that a salesman somewhere will have done it when they didn't let the valeter know the car was going out! I've heard of used engine oil being used before so paint isn't that hard to imagine!
