Do Not Sell My Personal Information

iv just finished cleaning the tyres on the car.  i think iv found the best product ever.  liberally spray wd40 onto a cloth then work it into the rubber.  they have come up like brand new.  no salt or muck.  i shall be doing this on a regular basis now. no shine just a lovely black finish.

Perhaps it will look good today, but as soon as the product dries out it'll look the same as before.

I just scrub mine with whichever car shampoo I'm using that day and an old wheel brush. Once a month ill apply some tyre dressing. Never had an issue achieving that new tyre look.

The main ingredient of WD40 is a solvent. When used on tyres the solvent will affect the rubber compound of the tyres. It may look great now but on the long term the solvent will cause the rubber compound to deteriorate prematurely.

Meguairs Endurance Gel is best for me...even survives light rain and puddles!  Their applicators are rubbish though, I just use an old kitchen sponge for one application and then bin it.

The main thing for any tyre dressing is degreasing the tyres first though.  Need a good stiff brush to do it.

Well, who'd have thought LOL
