Default Wet look tyres

What is the best wet look application that doesn't want doing every 24 hours lol? Years ago I got some stuff through the Mk2 Granada club you put on with a little sponge pad and it was amazing. Nothing I buy at the moment seems to work. It all seems to be spray on stuff that doesn't even last to get to a show in some cases! Not looking for breaking the bank, but something I can use more than for shows to keep them looking nice. Ta!

Simoniz wet look tyre shine gets my vote.

Lasts for a good while before you need to re-apply.

Just don't get it on your clothes!!!

The last time I "shined" my tyres I had to have a puncture repaired and the tyre fitter went loopy as it was all over everything he touched!

I recently used Auto Glym,well pleased.Also used on engine cover,gave it a good spraying and leave it to dry(don't wipe),takes a while. Gives off a great shiny finish.

Autoglym Rubber Plus. Unfortunately only available in 5 litre cans,(c£30), but very economical in use as you paint it on (thinly!). Only on my second can in 3 years, and I do have a large fleet! Usually available at most classic car shows.

I have tried many but settled with Autoglym High Performance Tyre Gel which I can highly recommend, use a kitchen sponge or cut a piece of sponge to size and after every use put the sponge in a plastic bag to keep it moist and you will find that it lasts longer
