    use the megs spray, with a megs applicator ( or a shoe polisher foam thing like mine )
    works a treat....also leave it to dry for a good hour or 2

    True. But there's nothing like having cherry scented tyres!

    Try 'blackfire long lasting tyre gel',easy to apply and doesn't fling all over the car,also don't bother using expensive applicators,buy a pack of dish washing sponges (the ones with the green scourer) then cut them to the size/shape you want.
