Trim/Tyre Dressings help

Hi
I am looking around for some new exterior trim and tyre gel.

I am a bit fo a CG fan however I am a bit confused on which would be better or what the differences are.

Anybody got any feedback on these:

Hi I'm currently using the bottom one at the moment.Two layers leaves my tyres very black but not an extreme shine.The new look gel doesn't last unfortunately,but leaves a very wet finish.The extreme shine you use very little.So I would go for that
I won't mention other brands or you'll get 100 different opinions.Hope this helps

I use vrp on my tyres and door resale and engine bay, gives a nice finish. Not shiny but not totally Matt either. You can buff it off to give it a more Matt finish. Easy to use and goes a long way.

This is a good product for tyres and says it can be used on trim also

Leaves a moderate gloss and good hydrophobic base.
