    I know everyone that sprays tire shine on nubby tires (or any tire) has to deal with the tire spray wicking up all over the vehicle.
    Well that's OVER!

    I picked this up the other day, sprayed it on at night, made my 30 mile commute to work the next day, and not a spot ANYWHERE

    [​IMG]

    it take awhile to put on, spray the first coat, let it sit, then respray and wipe the wheels off.
    (also take awhile to soak in)
    but it's worth it!

    Can you post some pictures of the results?

    Some tire shines give a Vaseline look, while others look more like new tires. I prefer something in between, maybe a little closer to the new tire look.

    Thanks

    If you use a tire applicator, sling is a non-issue.

    I've used Meguiar's Tire Gel for years... It gives the slick silicone look without the sling and lasts about 3 times longer too. Good stuff :thumbsup:. Just use the "tire applicator" or a sponge of some sort to apply it.

    What is this tire applicator you speak of? What am I missing by just spraying it on?

    I think they're talking about something like this...

    Just something to help the tire shine from dripping/building up before it has a change to soak into the rubber.

    I just went out and bought a brush that you would use to wash dishes with. I spray on and rub in with brush and wipe the excess with a rag. Works like a charms and gets in all the grooves.

    With the Bfg All Terrains it's always a pain to wipe everything off.

    I just spray my tires the day before I wash, so the next day I get a less greasy tire and a clean truck.

    Was looking for some wax the other day and Meguiars had a coupon for $5 of if you bought two of there products, so I upgraded my wax selection and picked up a bottle of the tire shine. Weather will finally be clear tomorrow and I'll give it a whirl.

    Sorry I didn't put any pics up... by the time it was set, it was dark. Next day I drove to Myrtle Beach...I did have flicking but it was quite a long way. When I got to Myrtle Beach, I took the bottle out from behind the back seat and found the nozzle crushed by my golf shoes... pooled up in the plastic pocket and made a mess.

    Good stuff. The color and smell (and shine) reminds me of Pro Products "Super Shine." Recommended.

    If you go to the kitchen deptartment at a wal-fart or k-fart look for a plastic tube with a sponge on the end of it, its for washing dishes, you can pour in your favorite tire shine goop and the sponge on the end soaks it up, you can apply it to your tires without spraying it all over your rims :)
