best tyre shine

56 minutes ago, have a word with the wife said:

highstyle is the best. on as said, clean tyres but £20 a bottle? how many litre is it ? am paying £39 for 5litre ebay .

We pay £22 something for 5L - most of Autosmarts 5L containers are about the same price.

Contact a rep, don't buy from eBay. If you aren't buying from a reputable seller, they could be watering it down a bit.

We haven't bought Highstyle from eBay, but have bought Autosmart polishes and they seperate after a couple of days. With the same stuff from the rep, it doesn't, and it's cheaper!

Further to the advise, I would ring head office get the rep to call to you it’s shocking how much of a good deal you get if you buy a few five ltrs at a time time you add glass cleaner a quick detailed tyre shine dash cleaner it’s quickly up to a decent enough order for them to make the visit.

This is a great thread and hats off to you guys & gals for sharing your experiences.  I hadn't heard of a few of the product brands mentioned!

I'm thinking that it could be beneficial to us all if the mods were to create a new forum section "Product Experience" or similar, then this info could be collated all together!

What do you think?

A lot of dealerships tend to use water-based tyre shine, but you won't get a high-quality finish unless you use a gel tyre dressing. Water-based tyre dressings will wash off after the slightest bit of rain, and provide no protection against UV rays - making the tyres go brown.

If you want to have glossy, black, factory finish tyres then a tyre gel is the best way forward - see this best tyre dressing article for the best, most cost-effective products on the market.

Hope this helps! :)
