A product testimonial: this stuff is great!

The door handles on my 300E and the black plastic ledge along the trunk door were blotchy gray from wax deposits. With no scrubbing, the stuff effortlessly removed the crud and made the parts dark black. (You should see the stuff that came off on the cloth!) Also worked nicely on tires and bumpers. Very inexpensive, too. A great product.

I'll second the opinion...

I like the B2B for tires because it never leaves a residue on the cleaning rag. It would seem that many popular tire dressings, when combined with MB brake dust, make a tar like residue that even tire/wheel cleaner wont touch. The B2B leaves the tires looking good but without that overly greasy look or the sludge effect a week later. It also dresses trim up without making dressed areas a dust magnet. Only thing is it is more of a cleaner, not a protectant.

After experimenting around with a bunch of stuff I'd have to recommend either a very small amount of Vinylex sprayed on an old sock, then wiped over the tire OR 1-2 coats of Meguiar's Endurance. The endurance seems to do best as far as not turning into a brake-dust paste a week or two later. The only downside to it is that for those who like really glossy shine, you might be better served elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, it will shine, but never ala armor all (a dirty word IMO). Either Vinylex or Endurance work well, just endurance lasts longer and picks up virtually no brake/road grime. Application may be a bit easier on the Vinylex if your particular tire brand has many tiny grooves in it (conti, another dirty word) as the pink goo (endurance) can be a bit thicker than Vinylex. Not a big deal with the Endurance applicator though. Both substances leave your hands a bit coated but that is par for the course when it comes to tire dressings. Just my observations...

Hope this helps...Lee

A second on Endurance. It holds up great here in AZ where the sun turns most tires brown very quickly.
