What Brand of Tire Shine Do You Use?

I can't seem to keep my tires shiny with black magic tire shine foam. I'd like to have an extreme wet look that lasts more than a couple of days.

I use this stuff, It's a squeeze bottle, you apply it to an applicator boot and rub it on, takes a tad longer than a spray but the benefits are so worth it.

* Only costs like $12...one bottle lasts me for-EVER, i think I've been on the same bottle for a year now...seriously, you dont need to use much at all per use, but the bottles quite large

*it gives the tires a super deep black glossy look, it stays on the wheels for days! even lasts through a rain here or there and it's not a spray so it wont go everywhere.

*b4 anyone gets on me about armor all I know there dash stuff is crap but I've been using this tire shine since I had my old black car and absolutely love this stuff.

I use this natural look.

Not greasy, or runny, or foamy, or makes the tire look stupid shiny and goofy.

It's fantastic.

You should be able to get it at your local auto parts store last I checked. Spray it on a towel, apply to clean tire and enjoy.

I basically use exclusively Adam's products on all my cars. Because he's a great guy and a good friend, his warehouse is just down the road from me, and (most importantly) everything he sells is 100% awesomeness.

I'm not a big fan of the high gloss tire shine, which makes the SVRT (Super Vinyl and Rubber Dressing) perfect for me.

And I'll admit that I go a bit overboard sometimes. As evidenced by the following pictures. I have 3 sets of tires for the balt and yes, when they're off the car I can't help myself and dress them top to bottom lol

yeah it really is "to each his own" on this one OP, it all comes down to what you want, I personally love the super shiny wet black look on a tire, like it's actually wet, but some dont, this is what the armorall makes my tires look like, and it stays lookin like that for a while. I hate sprays that fly everywhere and make a mess, this is applied with an applicator.
