Glossy Tyres

I am a massive fan of megs endurance tyre gel as I like a glossy wet look on my tyres. Its been one product that I have never even thought about changing.

I am about to run out and have no hesitation in buying more but thought I would post to see if anyone had any other recommendations for a glossy tyre dressing. Not to fussed on how long it lasts (as long as its more than a few days!)

I have CarPro Pearl diluted at 1:1 and it leaves a lovely finish. I also have Gyeon Tire that leaves a nice but not too glossy finish.

These two are brilliant in my opinion.

However, the Mrs got me a bottle of Megs Endurance last week and I tried it yesterday and I really like that too. It is slightly more greasy that the other two but looks fantastic!

The new AutoGlym tyre gel is definitely worth considering. A similar consistency to Meguiars, lasts really well, and is nice and glossy.

Orchard Autocare Glitz - excellent product. Dries in and can be layered to get a nice glossy finish.

PERL and ziano z16 are also worth trying.

If you want to buy a larger quantity, Autosmart Highstyle (5 litres for around 25 quid) would also leave a nice glossy finish for you too.

Have a look at the tyre dressing thread for some more suggestions. One thing, the brand of tyre can have a huge impact on how effective the dressing is. Half the fun though is trying different products. Lol.

I like mine to look really glossy too.
I’ve found if you use the mega gel (which I also think is great stuff) and then spray AG tyre dressing over the top straight after, you’re left with a very glossy wet look finish that lasts upto a few weeks- certainly in summer
I’ll admit I’ve not tried other products, but my gel is only half used after a nearly 2 years so haven’t had to yet

Long lasting protection

My method is 2fold I use GtechniqueT1 or Carpro PERL on a clean tyre then top it up with Smart wax Smart gel

The first application give a long lasting protection and the second is for gloss so you get the best of both worlds.

I’m using PERL 1:1 and really like it for the combination of finish and durability, but wouldn’t call it glossy at all. Maybe it is if it’s layered but not tried it. I have Megs endurance but couldn’t get on with it so tried the Sonax gloss one available from ecp, very similar to Megs but lasted better with less sling, I’d give that a punt if I were you. £7.36 for 250ml with current discount code.
