Good Tire Shining Products?

Im looking for some kind or tire shin that will last for awhile, and remove curb scuff marks. I tried some Armor All Spray on, and all it did was just grease up the tire and the rims, collecting dust. Then when i drove, you could see the little dribbles. Anything good?

Help!

I prefer to use Black Magic Wipes. They go on nice and smooth, and you wont have all that excess going all over the rims. It usually lasts for 3 to 4 days for me.

This is the stuff you want, but look for it in the Wipes.

I've been using Mequiar's Endurance gel for awhile with good results. It applies with a sponge type applicator (I use the Eagle One version) and it lasts for almost two weeks if it doesn't rain. If it does rain, it still looks black (not brown like armor all), just isn't quite as shiny.

I have tried almost every tire care product made and have finally found one that actually works and works well: ZEP's "Tireless Shine". It comes in an aerosol can so it sprays on evenly, gives tires that "new and wet" look and lasts up to a week - even if it rains. Its available at Home Depot in the Toronto area - try it if you can find it - you won't be disapointed

You got that right. I've been using the ZEP Tireless Tire Shine for 4 years now on the show circuit with my Ranger, and I have yet to see anyone with tires that are as shiny and wet looking as mine and who can maintain the shine as long as my tires do. This stuff is the best. A little pricey, but worth it in my book.

Have never tried it, but, have always heard that Lemon Pledge works good.

STP Son of a gun, in the self desolving foam type has worked best for me, lasts about 3 weeks and looks great, but the best part is when you rub up agenst your tire you dont get black all over your jeans.

I use Westleys Bleach white whitewall tire cleaner. Spray it on the tire while dry, and scrub with a scrub brush, and watch that crud that comes off the tire! Rinse well, and your tires will have a nice, natural, clean look. That's all I do, and I like the way they look.
If you want a shine, then apply one of the tire dressings. I'd use Mcguires Endurance.

Good luck!

Tire Protectant is what you should be looking for. Chemicals and petroleum degrade rubber, kinda like the "don't use vaseline as lube on your rubber" from sex ed. That can cost you a lot for a pretty shine, on your car or on the other thing.

Super Thick silicone, although it's getting hard to find. It doesn't harm rubber, and it stays pretty for a while. The next best thing is to find a product which isn't too corrosive.

I use some kind of turtle wax tire and vinyl protector stuff, came in a black bottle and said new in the corner, haven't seen it since. The stuff leaves a beautiful shine for a week or two till the dust settles back down( or you use a dirt road). Didn't go on well with a pair of older tires I had with overspray on them, but go figure. I like the way it makes my vinyl seats look and feel, greasy smooth but doesn't get on your cloths! I've used it on plastic, rubber, vinyl, subs, you name it, doesn't do a thing to paint just wipes right off. Great stuff, uv protection too.

ive had really really good luck with armor all tire foam. get the one with the gold top that says dealers advantage. (it means car dealers) dont get the reg one with the blue cap. you just spray it on and the foam cleans and shines. it rained heavily here and its still on the tires. im very happy.
