    Tyre dressing - back to black

    Any recommendations fir a tyre dressing to restore black colour to tyres?

    Looking for an easy to use, easy to apply type product.

    Had a look online but the myriad of products available is bewildering, to me anyway.
    Cheers,

    Ben

    These guys and their products are great - they have a Matt or shiny dressing

    I use Autoglym Bumper Care. It’s a gloopy green gel that actually cleans the rubber rather than just covering with shiny black ‘paint’. Easy to keep Matt or polish to a shine depending on your preference.

    In addition, unfortunately it not only comes down to personal preference (Matt, sheen, glossy) but different rubbers react differently to products so it's a case of trial and error. As a safe bet have a look at Halfords (Megs and Autoglym)- Megs endurance is a thicker product and will give a very glossy fnish. In any event , to optimise finish and performance you will need to scrub the rubber until all the brown muck has gone, rinse and dry.

    I use autoglym products - for tyre walls - easy apply spray that can be left for wet look or wiped for a satin finish.

    As others have said, you need to make sure you give your tyres a good scrub before applying any type of dressing.

    I’m a big chav and love a glossy tyre. They shiner, the better...
