I was testing a new product this weekend (can't say what just yet), and like you, I hate the greasy feel of most liquid products and always wear gloves.

However, this new one, it's like a runny polish consistency and not greasy at all. I didn't wear any gloves and applied with an MF cloth (rather than a tyre sponge or such).

Once I can mention it, I'll let you know

Be interested to see your results OP and what’s the longevity line ?
Spot on Andy
I have 20” wheels on my GLC with a fair side wall and the aerosol type is excellent for these.

This is a car I detailed this year, the tyres were dressed with the soft99 aerosol, it leaves a nice shiny finish that does dull down after a few days to leave a a lovely dark appearance.
