In my opinion, using Forever Black Tire Gel first, then covering it with Eimann Fabrik Black Opal Dressing using Eagle One Tire Swipes produces the best results.
For those who have gotten these silicone products on their rotors and claim they find no brake performance issues: SLAM on your brakes very hard. You should feel a distinct lack of ultimate bite that is disconcerting. Emergency stopping distances are extended. The only real solution are new rotors.
Spread-on tire gels might be an acceptable solution.
A guy who does detailing work near me told me that a few cars that had been detailed (specifically the dash) using a dressing containing an alcohol solvent were left in the sun and caught fire. I don't know if he was full of it or not.
I use dressings sparingly. My favorite is Black Magic Tire Wet. It's not too expensive last fairly well and smells like black cherry.

The "gel" sometines comes in a box with it's own hand applicator. Make sure your tires have been cleaned real good. I use Westleys.
Use one of those little disposable gloves during application. Then your hand will be clean afterwards.
