If you want your car to have that freshly detailed look, then you’ll need to pay as much attention to the tyres and trim as you do to the paint. Neglecting these details can really show the age of a car. Here are some of the products I use to keep my car looking brand new.

  • GB Detailing Onyx Tyre and Trim Dressing
  • Garage Therapy /ONE: Tyre Serum 
  • Bilt Hamber Surfex HD

 

Tyre Dressing 

Garage Therapy /ONE: Tyre Serum

This product is more than just a tyre dressing, as it also has replenishing and protective properties. I’ve found that continued use of this product creates a very weather-resistant finish, making it the longest lasting tyre finishing product that I’ve tried. It’s also very easy to work with, and requires a very small amount on a foam applicator to ensure even coverage. It leaves a lovely satin finish which completes the “detailed look” but without being too distracting or over the top for my taste!

Trim Dressing 

Gtechniq T1 Tire and Trim Dressing

This is one of the first car care products I purchased and has remained a firm favourite for a good couple of years. You barely need any product to ensure even coverage and it’s thin gel-like consistency is easy to work with allowing you to achieve a streak-free finish. I mainly use this on the trim, however you can use it on the tyres for a satin finish.

Cleaning

Bilt Hamber Surfex HD

For cleaning and preparing the tyres, wheel arches and trim before applying a dressing, I like to use this product. It’s very cost effective, and does an excellent job at cleaning the surface ready for applying a dressing. I use it at around a 1:10 dilution ratio.
