Maybe try some type of tire cleaner.  I had the same issue with the tires on my wife's Terrain. Been using APC full strength and scrubbing them with a brush and getting poor results.

 

So I bought some of the same tire cleaner that I started using in the 70s and they looked great the first cleaning and have stayed that way.  Then follow up with VRT which is great stuff.

After cleaning with APC dress all the rubber and plastics in engine compartment  with VRT and In & Out spray.

 

I agree.  The VRT is great for the larger areas and the In and Out for anywhere you need it.

What areas do you apply the VRT on the engine and what areas do you apply the In and Out spray?

Woah way to bring up a 3 year old thread lol. But usually, VRT goes on any area you can reach by hand with an applicator. In-and-out sprays in the hard to reach areas.

I was looking up information and this thread popped up. Thanks for you response. One last question. Does VRT and In and Out look the same when applied?

Yes I'd say they do, that is even in some of the Adam's youtube videos showing you can use it where vrt cant get. Both need wiped down with a rag if possible.

@Twilcox, @Devon527 has you pretty well covered. Only thing I'd add is I don't wipe down either the VRT or In & Out after applying. Wiping down either will knock down some of the sheen, though, if that's your preference. They look essentially the same when first applied. Think of In & Out as an aerosol VRT, so apply it wherever you can't easily reach with VRT. You can do the entire engine bay in In & Out, too, if you'd like. Here are some videos (one from earlier version, one current).
