I only use Westley's Bleach white to clean. Honestly those tire dressing do little more than attract dirt and dry rot your sidewalls.

Will Fluid Film® adversely affect plastic or rubber?
No, Fluid Film® has no adverse effects on plastics or synthetic rubber. On 100% natural rubber, some swelling can occur.

I was spraying the underside and the tires still looked rough from my last trip, so I gave them some FF. Looks ok to me, and couldn't be easier.

Meguiers Hot Shot Tire Foam. Just make sure you get the foam one, the other one sucks IMO.

I like it becuase it coats real well yet doesn't leave a ton a build up. It also gives it that new look without the high gloss, not big on my tires being real glossy.

I recommend cleaning your tires first though and letting them dry before applying. Personally I think this a great product and I've been using it for while now.

Oh and make sure you do this in the street because it will leave grease stains on the driveway.

^^^Agreed...Armor All SUX! The Meguires is the best I've found hands down with the best shine that lasts the longest.

Bingo! I use this then even out the coat with a sponge and it looks great afterwards.
