What is tire dressing?
Before we dive deep into the procedure and technique. We should know that what actually is tire dressing. Tire dressing is the formula or the mixture of two or more formulas ( containing both cleaner and shine ) that is used to restore old faded tires to bring them back to life. It mainly consists of wheel cleaner and tire shine.

Now let the wheel cleaner sit there for a maximum of 2 minutes and then rinse it off with clean water.
3. Get your bad dude to shine out
After the second step let your wheels dry and then apply the tire shine to the tires. And use the same brush to clean the tires too ( but make sure the brush is well cleaned after the wheels things being done ). Now let the tire shine sit there for two minutes and then rinse it off.

Non-water based dressing has its advantages as well like
Advantages of non-water-based tire dressing
