Our Best Tyre Dressing Products For Today:
1. Simoniz Back To Black Tyre & Trim
Best For On A Budget
Simoniz is a strong name within the car cleaning world. Their products deliver wonderfully on value, but this of course is matched with a lower quality when compared to other, higher end tyre dressings.
This is by far the most multi-purpose tyre shine on our list, though. Usable on black, faded plastic trims as well as tyres. However, testing results have proven several times that it isn’t that reliable for its dual purpose of the trim as well as the tyres.
Results for the tyres were solid, but were not that durable and will fade between 4-8 days.
2. Turtle Wax Wet'n'Black Tyre Dressing
A silicone based tyre dressing, and at a fair price bracket. This Turtle Wax spray on tyre shine offers a strong scent when sprayed with no applicator needed.
Despite bring a bright shine to your tyre walls, this spray falls under the category of ‘spray it and leave it’, which may be very easy and time saving but won’t give the longevity of the stronger gels on this list.
The downfall of the Turtle Waxs’ ease is that the results of bright shine will only last between 3-5 days, maybe a week with no rain.
Autoglym Instant Tyre Dressing
Best All Round
Starting to get into the more durable tyre dressings, we have Autoglyms Instant Tyre Dressing.
The application may take slightly longer in comparison to the spray on shine, but will need way fewer top ups throughout the months and is rated to last between 13-18 days depending on weather conditions and how heavy the application was.
Autoglym always delivers on quality, as seen with their shampoos, and with a 500ml bottle for £7 this product is actually really good for value. That’s why we have rated it as the best all rounder, including quality, pricing and efficiency.
4. King Of Sheen Eco Tyre Shine
This very fairly priced tyre shine cleaner leaves a very effective shine on tyres, and even comes with an applicator to make it easier to apply to tyre walls and trims.
The Eco Tyre Shine is another strong product from King Of Sheen. Being solvent free and water based means It’s safe for any plastics. Results from tests indicate that it’s not the best in the industry for the plastic trim side of things, but is still at great value for its tyre dressing capability.
It smells extremely nice, and applying it precisely is made nice and easy due to its applicator pad included. Although not as effective as a designated trim restorer, this versatile bundle actually does restore trims to a good degree.
5. Maguiar's Endurance Tire Gel
For those of you who despise applying tyre shine coats weekly, this may be the tyre dressing for you. We labelled this tyre gel as the most durable because it simply is. On average, you will get 20-25 days of deep, glossy black set tyres out of one application.
Meguiar’s went an extra step and added UV protection to their Tire Gel, which is something very few tyre dressings offer. Super glossy tyres, endurance and the protection has to be weighed up with the price. This is something that is relevant solely to the buyer; are these perks worth x3 the price of the Autoglym?
The only downsides to Meguairs, would be the price when compared, alongside the fact that your tyre walls have to be dry to apply the product. With others, such as the Autoglyms you can apply wet or dry.
Conclusion - What's The Best?
So, what is the best tyre shine dressing? This is a question down to you, the customer. If you have made it this far down the article and are still undecided, I would have to suggest Maguair’s Tire Gel simply due to its quality and longevity.
We all have boxes to tick when it comes down to a purchase, all of these tyre dressings have different professions, applications, smells, quantities and more. Keep all of these differences in mind when buying something for your car, and make sure it’s a product you will be happy with.
