Idiots also apply this when car comes in for MOT testing too, so everything gets covered in this rubbish after checking tyres, some stuff is fine, but others are sticky horrible stuff !
Some products can also affect the tyre materials if used frequently, adding to perishing / cracking of the side walls, whilst some also have a detrimental effect on painted surfaces (Autosmart Rubber Dressing" was one of them from years ago !

Surely a visual inspection of the tyres is what is required at the mot but if you’ve to touch them can you please enlighten me as to the reason

I like things to shine, tyres too but it’s not to everyone’s taste

Hi Dawn (and everyone else ).

Some excellent suggestions, Another one to try is Car Chem.

They're based in Nottingham and AFAIK actually make all their own stuff - and it's good stuff. Well known on the Detailing World forum that a few of us are on.

Hope that helps.

Andy.

A number of reasons why they need to be touched if not obvious :

Checking of wheel bearings.
Checking for sidewall damage to include examination of cuts bulges.
Moving vehicle on to turn plates to check wheel contact to body on full lock (ATL).
Just to mention a few !
