    Looking for a good tyre dressing that gives tyres that new look , not glossy, just a nice rubber look..
    I've tried several including ArmorAll , which is very good , is there anything better ?

    I used to use tyre dressings on my classic cars, then read somwhere that its not a good idea becouse it draws the natural oils out of the rubber.
    Sorry cant remember where I read it,but have not used them since.

    Tyre Slick, doe's what you want I have just ran out so if you can find it let me know please as my previous supplier has gone bust, auto smart isn't bad, but it is still a little glossy for my liking.

    Donkeys years ago you could buy stuff like liquid rubber .. I believe it conatined Benzine as a solvent .. probably banned now ..

    I served my electrical apprenticeship at India Tyres .. they used tons of the stuff to smarten up scruffy tyres before sending out to retailers .. made them look like fresh out of the mould .

    I use a lot of Armorall products they are good, (I still think there products they sell in the USA are better than here) but their tyre dressing dosn't put any oils back into the tyre thats one of the reasons it washes off quickly, both the products I use do, but the worst thing for tyres apart from standing is daylight, and all the dressing in the world won't protcect from that.

    Simoniz tyre dressing. It contains a sun block similar to what we humans use. Claims to stop rubber degrading in sun light, and dries matt - I don't like em shiny.

    Lots of ideas and suggestions .. thanks, but no one has mentioned

    Kiwi Black boot polish ... I've used that to great effect but it's tedious to apply and brush up


    Anyone else tried it ?
