I like it. I spray give it a quick swipe with a soft tire brush and hose it off. Then start on the rest of the car. Hot, cold or warm I've never had a problem with the Meguires.

Is that the stuff in the green bottle thats called Formula 2K1? (formally Formula 2001?) If that is I use that stuff on my tires all the times it shines em' up really good! I use detailer (turtle wax) product inbetween waxes to keep them looking sharp. Everytime I wax the car I wax my wheels too!

Recommendation not given on this product. Gave it a test application on the hood, and it sucks. I rubbed the heck out of it trying to get the polish all the way gone, but couldn't do it. There were still spots that had it leftover. In the mornings when there is dew on the car you can still see where the strokes were made trying to get the polish to come off. Looks like it'* time for some Meguier'*.
