You have to be careful with tyre dressing that contain a lot of silicon, as this can actually colour your tyres, you end up with brown tyres :|

One way or another, brown tyres are a sign that you haven't cleaned them. Gyeon's tyre cleaner is excellent stuff - just follow instructions (basically, apply, wait a min or so, scrub, repeat until the foam is white, not brown). https://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/gyeon-q2m-tirecleaner

Prefer Gyeon Tire than Megs Endurance, but have now moved on to Gyeon express for a more natural finish https://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/gyeon-q2m-tire-express

Ultimately, durability is down to how clean the tyres are.

Meguires tyre gel also gets my vote.

Just don’t apply too much otherwise it will splatter like a mofo when driving.

Gyeon stuff looks good so may give that a try next.

I swear by this stuff:

Meguiar's Endurance High Gloss Tyre Gel

Another vote for this.

Apply it sparingly so it doesn’t spray down the side of the car when your drive it, but it lasts a decent time too. I’ve had my current bottle for four years!

A lot of great options... If you can maybe post a pic after application so we can the end result / the shine level. To me too shiny ain't good.

Thanks!

I’ve given some G Technique stuff a whirl this time around and it seems really good. Easy to apply and no tyre sling so far.
