I use perl diluted 1:1 and spray it onto a detailing brush and paint it on. Then leave it to dry and give it a quick wipe over to get rid of any excess.

I use the Halfords polish applicators. £2 for 2. They last ages and have a pocket in the back so are easy to use as well

I use these tyre dressing applicators from Amazon.
I used to use kitchen sponges, but seeing as it was my birthday I thought I'd splash out the £1.50 for 5 dedicated tyre shine applicators

The sponge is much nicer to use.
The stiff/dense foam holder makes it less messy to use without gloves.

Just don't use it sideways as indicated by the contour of the sponge but drag across the tyre using one edge like a brush dragging it along it's long axis.
This prevents the glue between the soft foam and the handle failing

i personally tend to use the cheap yellow applicator pads get around 24 for a few pound, they do the job and i don't mind chucking them away when they go bad

Mine are usually in tatters after I've done the four wheels. Cheap enough to bin when done.
