I also washed,   waxed and gloss finished the car today- spring clean.  5 hours without doing the inside,  as you can see it's gleaming

Wash and polish the car, scrub the tyres,  clean the alloys then blackwall the tyres. All goes together 

Mick . The car is now four years old  and they are still good to go.  The design helps because the tyres hang over the Alloys by about 10mm . Just changed them nearly £600 for  a set of 18" conti

Anyway, nice job, and you're making me feel really guilty for not having done mine yet!

Thanks Kev. Had a feeling it was you . Ive still not tried the Meguires tyre gel , next on my list mate, thanks for reminding me.

Only takes four minutes for the spray to do its job then wash off and dry. Highly recommended, as you can all see it works fine

Carnt really believe people polish there tyres is this an April 1st thread 

I can't believe that people polish their tyres without first scrubbing them clean. Pointless exercise, whatever day of the month it is.

Must admit I normal get the car washed then do the wax n tyres myself but this time I did it all myself.  I had been off road and it was rather muddy couldn't wait for the car wash place to open
