I use Opti-Bond Tyre Gel, or Ammo Mud (doesn't last as long as opti-bond), Zanio gets really nice results too.

All depends if you like a gloss or Matt finish, personally I don't like shiny tyres however other don't like Matt tyres.

I assume at lower speeds the wheel isn't turning fast enough to fling it far away. It's basically splattered all over the place!

I've used megs tyre dressing for ages and I don't have any problems. I even put a second layer on after an hour also and still no problems. I get about two weeks put of it and I do 1100 miles a month.

Wonder if it's because the tires are chunky off road tires? The deep side lugs might have stopped me spreading the dressing as thinly as i thought.

I think that could be it, I also use it and have no fling issues.
As I alluded to earlier, centrifugal force will fling any excess away from the wheel even at low speed.
Two or three pea sized blobs on a sponge is all I use for 1 coat on 18" tyres.

I've used it before, had some issues, but I was applying it very heavily to be honest. Short run in the car, at no more than 30mph had it all over the place, but not on the wheels. The centrifugal force will throw the dressing away from the pivot point.

Megs Endurance gets a lot of positive reviews. I personally think it is horrible stuff. Slimey, greasy and it never dries on the tyre. This results in every bit of dust and dirt sticking itself your side wall leaving a mess to clean on your next maintenance wash.

I use a thin layer well rubbed in with a sponge and have never had any issues with sling. It's my go to dressing for durability.

Mine leaked in a bag all over the cloth I used for applying. It was much better than applying straight from the bottle.

I now just leave the cloth saturated and use it like that. Something evaporates making it better.

I dislike Megs tyre dressing a lot. Threw nearly a whole bottle in the bin it was so bad.

Now I use Gyeon tyre gel or Achem Hi Shine when I went my tyres to be super glossy!
