    So, when I got my new tires at DT, the last thing they did was spray on some stuff and wipe down the tires. Whatever this substance was, it seemed to make the tires look fantastic. Not glossy black like most tire stuff, but a nice clean black.

    Anybody know what this stuff is?

    Not sure but I do know that scrubbing them with comet and a stiff bristle nylon brush makes tires super black, but not stupid glossy looking.

    Not sure where you saw $80? This stuff is 29 and it lasts forever.

    When I worked there we just used low gloss armor all. That was over 10 years ago.

    Just call your store and ask them each store might differ.

    I just got tires there today. The shine is o.k. but I prefer it more flat then that.

    Greetings;

    If you just want a clean, non-shiny black, wipe your tires down with Bleach White after you wash your truck. It's cheap and you can get it anywhere.
