I use 303 on the tires.

But the other stuff ?

on the honey comb, you are going to have to be real careful with anything so that it ends up looking even/good.

Here is a very good product for tires that I have also used on all the plastic including the rear facia. It is water based. https://www.amazon.com/Dressing-Prot...%2C164&sr=8-31

Follow is with this: https://www.amazon.com/Waterless-Was...s%2C160&sr=8-3

I don't particularly like the petroleum based products. 303 is a good product line also. I use this brand to clean and waterproof my convertible top.

I've used Stoner More Shine for years it gives the rubber a nice clean look not plasticky like a lot I've seen and does not fly off all over the car it comes in an aerosol can spray it on and that's it no need to wipe off . As for the wheel wheels I do mine a couple of times a year inner and outer with this stuff of course I make sure everything is clean my thought being right or wrong it will keep the liner a bit more pliable because we all know how these things tend to crack .As for the rear fascia I suppose you can do it but to me wiping out the honeycombs which a lot of these products require is a waste of time I just keep mine clean with a soft brush when I wash my car .

Also - I used "Tuf Shine" on the tires last year. Still look good this year. It takes a lot of prep to make sure your tires are ready for it, but it basically "bonds" to the tire surface. I like the fact that it keeps them looking deep black but not glossy/greasy.
