    best thing to do if you dont want crap sticking it to WAX your tires. i use Maguires Gold paste on my Mickey's, doesnt leave them all stupid mirror shinny, but they look clean and deep colored. so if your okay with not looking like you just put cooking oil on them then just take some paste wax to them, the shine will be more of a luster but it lasts forever and dirt and dust wont build up. :)

    Meg's Hyperdressing is the best stuff cause you can dilute it with water if it's too shiney to leave a nice matte finish. Makes the tire look new and not like it was coated with vaseline.

    Meguiar's HD or the aerosol can of Hot Shine works well. I prefer the can of Hot Shine because it gets into the edge of the tire tread better than having to use a foam applicator for the bottles of HS.

    303 is the shit. Doesn't look oily and glossy, doesn't sling up on the truck and protects the tire from UV.
