What's Best to Make Tire Rubber Look "Wet" or "Fresh"?

Back in High School this kid used to wipe his tires with brake fluid. I KNOW that's wrong. But that's the only life-experience "tip" I have. I've wiped tires with Vaseline before. I have this stuff "Armor All Wheel and Tire Cleaner" and I've spent the last few days trying to soak my tires with it until I finally did some research and found it it's just a cleaner (probably a detergent) and not intended to "freshen" the rubber tires.

So I've decided to ask for help. What's the best way to get older, dry-looking rubber tires looking fresh?

I use 303 protectant - the shine doesn't last as long, but I don't believe in putting any petroleum based products on rubber

I use a product called "PrimeShine"...available in water or solvent based....check with local detail suppliers as there is also a "brown label" version of this as well. Typically lasts about 1 month and then takes very little to restore shine.

Usually use No Touch tire care, to clean, then used to use 303. Lately, I've been using the NoTouch, let it sit for a couple hours, then, and laugh if you will, I spray it down with Lemon Pledge and let dry. Lasts pretty good, no slinging if you let it dry. Will it accelerate tire rot? Who cares, I've got the junk Hankook AT/M's.
