Another option in this price bracket is Tuf Shine:

They also do a kit, including a cleaner and brush. Seems to be well regarded in the states.

I’ve used the tuffshine and it’s superb stuff. As said above, the prep is the most important part. I had a set of tyres changed after putting tuffshine on months before and you could still see it.

If I’m pressed for time though I’ve got a bottle of bouncers dress to impress that gives great shine but just doesn’t last as long.

Preparation, weather conditions and the amount of miles you travel weekly are all determining factors. Plus how aggressively you clean you wheels and how often.

Given my miles and location, there's no product that will survive 4 weeks (1500 miles) for me.
