I've just switched to Autoglym Tyre gel

Gorgeous smell.
Similar to Megs endurance gel.
I leave my applicator sponge face down in a container.
It stays saturated on the applicator surfac meaning hardly any product to apply subsequently.

Autoglym Tyre Gel is actually very good imo.

Goes on sparingly and gives a long lasting natural finish, so they look like new tyres rather than dressed tyres.

Application wise, I use a cut down yellow sponge to wipe round the tyre and then quickly work it with a wide paintbrush.

I'm a huge fan of the Autoglym Tyre Gel, have a look at ValetPro Maximun Shine Tyre Gel - fantastic product.

I quite like chemical guys silk shine, sams detailing one is good too imo. Its worth noting that different dressings take to certain tyres differently - my dads 3 series has michelin primacys i believe and i applied the chemical guys one the last time i had some free time to clean the car for him, pretty much instantly soaked in and vanished whereas it keeps the falken front / michelin ps4 rears on my clio looking good for a few weeks if the weathers dry

That's a very good point, Kev's making. The gel dressings do offer slightly more consistency across tyre brands, I've found, but the solvent, liquid dressings can differ hugely.

Ive found that also, the CG one is runny like autoglym instant tyre dressing. Tyre age seems to play a role too, as they start to dry out and crack on the sidewalls
