Tyre and trim dressing

What dressing would you recommend.

I use Valet Pro Black to the future and I love it. Only problem is, no matter how sparingly I use it, a pot doesn't last long at all.

What do you guys use?

I've used Gtechniq T1 Tyres and Trim since it came out several years ago.
Lasts ages on plastic trim and is not shiny on the tyres (if you want a little shinier, add another coat after 5-10 minutes).

CarPro Perl is my go to dressing.
At 16,99 for one litre, which can be diluted, it's hard to beat.

Trim dressing - I use either AG trim dressing (new version) or Auto Allure's trim dressing - been using this recently on wife's car and very pleased with results, gives a nice satin finish and appears to be holding up well.

Tyre dressing - currently using AG tyre gel or Megs Endurance - depends on tyre as certain tyre's prefer a different one. I find the Megs lasts longer than AG.

AutoAllure do one, but not tried it yet.

autoglym bumper and trim gel is nice and seems to last a while

autoglym high performance tyre gel is nice too, so is odk attire which you can use on both tyres and trim

I can't seem to fault Obsession Wax's Nero. Use it anything that is rubber or plastic and it comes up a treat. Two coats for gloss or one coat for satin.

Tyre and trim dressing

+1 for obsession wax Nero. Took me a little while to get used to using it though. Great shine on tyres.

Another vote for CarPro Perl, really good stuff and pretty easy to apply.

And it can be applied to wet tyres.

However, on rainy days it doesn’t last all that long.

Certainly like the sound of CarPro Perl. Not liking the "sold out" signs in the link!!

I've used T1 and it's an excellent product but I do spruce up my 2 Daughters cars regularly and am looking for something that will last me a while (larger bottle or dilution).

I'll have to research the Obsession wax and Autoglym ones ans I have never used these. At least now I have some to look at that come recommended so thanks for that guys.

I might just add I thing Valet Pro Black to the Future is amazing but if you have a lot of trim as well as the tyres it doesn't go very far at all.
