How to use Back to Black Tyre and Trim?

Using Back to Black Tyre & Trim is quick and easy, so you can make it a regular part of your car care routine.

First, you’ll want to wash and dry your car thoroughly, finishing the paintwork with a fresh coat of wax if it’s time to apply a new one. Be sure to clean the wheels as well as you possibly can, using a pressure washer and soft-bristled brush to remove brake dust and deposits from hard-to-reach areas.

Next, it’s time to apply Back to Black Tyre & Trim. Shake the can well and then, holding it at least 10cm from the tyre or bumper, spray it evenly in neat lines to ensure a smooth, even finish. If you want a deeper gloss finish, wait for the product to dry, and then apply another coat in the exact same way. You can repeat this process, applying more coats, until you’re satisfied with the overall appearance.

Can I use Back to Black Tyre & Trim on a grey bumper?
