Jim_mk7.5,  thanks I'll look for that GTechniq product.

If you want a very good, long lasting, easy to apply, no sling tyre dressing,  I highly recommend Achem Hi Shine Long Life Tyre Dressing.  Don’t be put off by the name, it can be that can be glossy, matt or satin as you want depending on how you apply.  Fantastic stuff and having tried many tyre dressings this one always comes out top for me.  https://www.achemshop.co.uk/product/hi-shine/

In case you wondered Peter was referring to my recommendation for the GTechniq APC not tyre dressing. Although I do use T1 for plastics/trim but not really as a tyre dressing.

I wasn’t wondering. Just pulled the wrong quote up.

Tyre dressing has been mentioned so simply posting up a good one if Peter is interested in them in general. 👍

I had these put on my clubsport today after 25,000 miles on the previous tyres. Really impressed with the ride so far, far more comfortable. Without dcc so this has helped.

That’s good to know!
I need to do likewise soon once a plethora of other bills are out of the way.

Exonian, "Tyre fitter’s gunk wipes off with any shampoo or even a bit of  ..... "
Noted and thanks.  I'm relieved that it will come off easily.

ed30James, I've just done 100 miles dry and wet Motorway, A-roads and town on my new set of four.   Very impressed so far.  I noticed the difference straight away, smoother ride and less noise.  So really pleased with them.
They really do look exactly like Watts excellent photos, great.
