BRILLIANT STUFF!!

Section for general chatting about your RAV4 or other Rides ... What you do with it, how to use it, where you been in it, or not been in it, we don't mind... It's a free world!
Oh, If you want to get all technical, the Technical Questions and Info could be the place to go.

BRILLIANT STUFF!!

I got a tin of this recently and used it on both cars after a wash. It brings the tyres up like new and you don't have to do anything other than spray it on and wait for the foam to evaporate. You need to scrub any mud, etc. off first but obviously you do that when washing the wheels.
Highly recommended, especially at the £3.99 I paid for it in TK Maxx :D .

Used a similar product many years ago, Jimbob......name escapes me........longevity a wee bit pish but looked really nice.

Only downside was it remained a bit oily and sticky on the alloys, then attracted brake dust in those areas......cluster duster if you like. If left furra few weeks between washes, only thing that cleaned the wheels back was......acid wheel cleaner.

Do report back but though........ ;)

So far, no such problems, BK. Certainly it didn't leave any residue on the alloys at all and just over a week on, the tyres are still nice and shiny. I don't know how long the tin will last but having done both cars, it still feels pretty full.

I use Muc-off stuff on the bikes and it's always good quality stuff.
