I used to use Meguiar's Endurance Gel too, I found it very glossy and long lasting but quite greasy.
My current choice is Waxaddict Feeder Tyre Conditioner & Waxaddict Slicks Tyre Dressing.

Feeder offer a Matt/Satin finish (going onto glossy if you use more)
Slicks offers the ultimate gloss.

You can use both, so Feeder first which is thicker and penetrates into the tyre rubber. This doesn't really need to dry, after application it shouldn't sling.
Slicks is quite watery and they recommend you spray it on, but I spray onto an applicator and then apply and leave to dry.
Both are Sio2 based and shows good beading.
Both are water based, and when used I can easily get 2 weeks plus of good gloss before it starts to fade - it is weather dependent of course.

I've heard great things about ODK Attire too, and that will be the next one I try.

I swear by Obsession Wax Nero,

If you like a satin look, just apply one coat and if you look glossy, apply 2 or 3. A little goes a long way and it lasts a fair amount too!

I've been a long time Meguiars user, and still will be, but I'm liking the finish on that Beemer with the PERL dressing.....think I'll give that a go

I only tried Meguire's on the weekend and it's good! However the CarPro Pearl is a lot less greasy. I felt the tyres an hour ago and they are still oily, but still look good!

SG - This is AutoGlanz Uber Schwartz on a Fiesta ST Line I did. That was the last time I used it!

Isn't Auto Glym Rubber Plus Cleaner supposed to leave a glossy finish (any pics from a user would be handy), although I'm not sure if it's just a trade product so you'd need 5ltrs

CarPro Pearl looks like a contender. What do you think of the finish of megs compared to perl? If they are about the same my give it a whirl.

Thanks for all the replies folks btw!

They are both good, no doubt about that. PEARL is also more versatile. You can use it for a number of things. I might even give it a go neat, straight from the bottle.

It's also easier to apply than the Megs as the Megs is a bit sticky!

PEARL edges it for me but let's see the durability. PEARL only lasts about a week.

I've been using obsession wax Nero for years, I generally just spray it on and the wipe the excess off the wheel and let it dry for the gloss look, you don't then get any sling or transfer to the paintwork

You can also buff the tyre once its dry to have a more satin finish or oe finish

Nero can also be diluted and used as an interior dressing its that versatile
