Like what??? If you have something that's better, tell us what it is - I'd be interested in knowing.

Like I say, in MY case, I've used 303 on my spa cover and my weight lifting equipment, which is black vinyl, sits outside 24/365 and endures 100+ degree summer days...and it looks new.

I'd challenge ANY other product to match THAT but as I say...if you have something you like, tell me. I'll get a sample and test it.

Thank you,
Ed
Adam's Polishes Super VRT. I use it on tires, interior, and exterior trim. VRT is waterproof. It won't run like other products. Water will bead and run off.

Mud and sand work nicely! It exfoliates the tire


But honestly I use Meguiars products.

I like no touch foam satin finish. Do not like tires to shine.

I like this stuff. Stays on for about a month. Keeps the ride looking fairly clean! But I like a shinyish wheel and others don't so theres that.

Check out Tuf Shine Permanent Tire Coating. You clean the tires up real nice once apply maybe 2-3 coats of the tire "clearcoat" and let it cure and you'll be very happy with the results. On my focus I had it on since November, been through rain, snow etc and the tires always clean up with just soap and water and look just as good. Might just add another coat once the weather warms up.

I don't expect it to hold on immediately at 80mph after application which is why I'll was in the AM and drive another vehicle that day or drive my truck the next day.

Let's hear the product reviews.
I use poorboys bold n bright or blackfire tire dressing spray

if you're concerned about sling, wipe down the tires after application with a crappy microfiber towel. although the 2 I mentioned above dont really sling at all unless over applied

Zaino tire protectant. Best stuff I've used so far, doesn't sling. Dries to the touch after about a half hour.

Ask anyone who's ever used this, and they'll tell you it's the best. I use this on my spa cover that experiences 100+ degree days in the summer and it look almost new. My spa is 7 years old!

X2, I agree with this stuff. it's really hard to beat! I haven't tried any of the other stuff as it seems to be a regional product and the stores I shop don't stock it or perhaps I'm just not looking in the right places.

The 303 aerospace protectant was initially developed for the aerospace industry and carried over to the automotive industry due to its success and durability. It works on anything black or any color for that matter. I have used it in the interior of my cars without any problems.

Now here's a product that's not gaining much attention but has been been rated in the TOP 2 products and its an "AS SEEN ON TV" product. It's called "WIPE NEW" tires. I'm tempted to give it a try but it comes in a very small bottle and is on the pricey side.

I just spray armor all and let it sit. Nice shine, doesn't sling off, and easy to clean later

This is by far the best product I've used so far: http://www.amazon.com/Green-Earth-Te.../dp/B0016LEAUI

If you're looking for the wet glossy look, look elsewhere. If you want that dark black brand new look, this is awesome stuff. Plus it doesn't turn your tires brown over time like other dressings. It also moisturizes the rubber rather than just coat it.

I'm also thinking of trying Wolfgang product. Heard great things about it: http://www.autogeek.net/wg4600.html

Again, it's no so much a glossy dressing as it is a cleaner and conditioner of rubber, which brings the tire back to looking brand new, ie dark black.
