tire dressing

my new Kumho tires turn brown in 3-5 days (even after using Westleys), what is a good tire dressing that lasts awhile and doesn't sling off on my white car? I have tried many over the years and still have not found anything decent.

I have had very good results from "303 Protectant". It gives a nice clean look without looking like cheap patent leather shoes. Armor All Low Gloss also works well.

Is the brown stuff on your wheels/tires brake dust? If it is you could go with ceramic pads and not have that any more.

You shouldn't need ceramic shoes for the rear as most of the dust stays inside the drums and isn't vented outside or open like the front calipers. I have never seen ceramic shoes, but then I never looked.
