Meguiars tire dressing - Messy!

Am I doing something wrong? Used this product last week, pretty sparingly, on the BFG All Terrains on my Hilux, and the mess is horrendous! It was like applying cooking oil, so I cleaned off as much as possible for minimal fling, but a week later, the alloys are greasy and black.
Any thoughts? All comments appreciated, especially if I've done something daft!
Cheers.

i found it to be the same to be honest. does seem to sling but also lasts a fair amount of time.

i found a sponge best for applying and as thin as possible.

That seems to be what it's like, horribly messy and slings everywhere

I squeeze some on to a bit of foam and then apply it that way and lightly wipe with a crappy old MF after a few mins to help.
Never had any issues with this method.



Kinda ropey pic but I've just found out it's all I've got of tyres lol

To be honest I found the same thing (looks really bad on a white car) and ended up giving mine away and moving to another product.

What do you now use, I've been using the product for a while and have almost ran out so looking at purchasing something else?

If you're thinking of changing, Gyeon tire is a good shout.

I'm currently using Infinity Wax Rubber Wax for tyres trust me when i say you'll get zero sling. Prior to that it was Carpro Perl and I keep Autoglanz Ubershwarz in my kit for a gloss dressing option.
