    Hey guys ever notice how tires get that brownish color on the side wall these days? It makes the tires look like crap . The only way to get rid of it is to put some kind of tire dressing on them. What do you guys use and how long dos it last ? So annoying!! :mad:

    Yeah, you need to clean the tires until you no longer get brown or dirty foam off them then let them dry and apply the Turtle wax jet black endura shine tire coat this stuff works great, and lasts bout two months depending on weather and driving habits... But it's good stuff don't attract dirt, and no sling... https://www.turtlewax.com/shop/products/turtle-wax-jet-black-black-endura-shine-tire-coat-kit should be able to find this at local auto store or Meijer store...

    I recently started using Tuf Shine. It's actually a coating. I tried the kit out Labor Day weekend. Tires still look good. Gives a nice clean black look. Not overly shiney.

    Everytime I wash the truck, I hit the tires really well with a tire brush. So far, it's kept the brown color off the tires and I haven't had to apply any sort of coating, treatment, paint, etc to keep them looking black.

    Same here. I scrub my tires with a degreaser each time I wash them and never get the brown color. It also works great for keeping the white letters white if you have them.

    Its brake dust, a good all wheel and tire cleaner will remove it easily. I use Meguiars hot rims.

    I'm old school. I wash my tires with dish soap and warm water and a stiff-bristled brush. Then I wipe them down with a shop rag and some castor oil to shine them up. :notsure:

    In my experience the stuff you put on tires to make them black and shiny actually makes them brown when it wears off.I haven't used that stuff in years and my tires look like new.

    lol the stuff is not slick, it has a matte finish so don't expect any shiney shine stuff. Just protects really good and keeps stuff new looking.

    ^ this
    most stuff you use as "tire shine" has petroleum distillates (spelling?) in it which after it wears off it actually drys out the rubber stripping oils from it. found this out the hard way after using armor all back in the day a lot and it leading to be the cause of my dash board cracking. I see that it caused my tires to go brown as well when I used to use any shine products. Which is when I found Aerospace 303 and haven't looked back....just my $.02

    I will agree with you on the armor all, i have never understood how people can think that putting an "oil" on the dash would protect it. I mean what does oil do when it gets hot, it cooks, well when it cooks, it dries it out. I used armor all on my first vehicle, and when the dash started to crack i never touched the stuff again.

    I do use the tire gel, that has to be wiped on, because its lasts for several car washes and never has turned my tires brown. Its the best stuff that i have found as far as keeping them clean. I really like it alot.

    303 is great until first rain and it washes off. I use it on interior. I would suggest Adam's super VRT. It is rain repellent. I use on exterior trim except tire which is where I use Tuf Shine.
