I'm sure you could get something way better in the UK then AmorAll. Don't waste your time or money on importing this crap from the U.S. or CA where their company is based. Only rookies use AmorAll!!

WOLF'S CHEMICALS TYRE & TRIM GEL (BLACK OUT)

Never used, but seems cheap enough to try. Is there a reason you must order off that site? I'm sure you have detailers in the UK right? Ask around and find out where the detailers get their professional grade supplies at and go there. It should cost around $20-25 US per gallon for a good tire dressing. That should last you a year.

Can you not read? The OP is inquiring about Armor All Wheel Protectant, not tire protectant?

Yeah I can read didn't even notice the wp after ArmorAll. My bad son. In that case I would still do what I suggested in my earlier post just change tire dressing with wp.

Look into something called Optimum OptiCoat 2.0 instead.

Its permanent and works on any surface. Its the best coating i've ever used on any car. Repels water and dirt like i've never seen before.

the product is available (recently) in halfords

but...

it isn't a great product - it's meant to be used in temperatures above 18degC - so pretty much useless in the UK then!

on the rare warm summers day I did get to use it, it takes hours to 'set' but keeps wheels very clean.

OK in southern california, but no use in northern england!
