What tyre shine do dealerships use?

Hi all

I bought a Fiesta from Evans Halshaw one month ago and the tyres are still shiny. Does anyone know what produce dealerships use as I'd love some of that? I've used several products over the years but nothing has lasted that long. Many thanks.

A lot of dealerships probably use Autosmart as they go round visiting them & it saves them going places for products,,you could give them a call at dealership & ask who they use.

Auto Smart or Auto Glym would be my guess.

Nielssen Brilliance ia also a trade favourite. I find it lasts a long time. Bear in mind that if the car is brand new then so are the tyres so the dressing will cling better as they are clean

You could contact the dealer and ask hopefully they'll tell you.

I would assume that different dealers use different products so would only be a guess but I'd go with Lees guess as well with Autosmart or Autoglym as it'll be trade and in bulk

What tyre shine do dealerships use?

I’ve seen the AG van parked at the local
VW franchise. Maybe it was in for a service...
