Gaskets

I was wondering if anyone puts any conditioner on the door, trunk and sun roof gaskets to keep them pliable? I have seen old cars with rotted out gaskets and I would like to prevent this. What are you guys using? I would prefer a product I could pick up at my local auto parts store or walmart.

Thanks

You can't get it at most chain stores but einszett Gummi Pflege is the best I have used for restoring rubber seals.

Don't use a regular rubber protectant unless you like squeaking noises.

i used the autoglym rubber and vinyl care spray. keeps the seals like new but doesnt leave it all greasy like some of those other products. and doesnt make any squeaking noises either.
