    I have tried a lot of products on the market and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on a home made product or other product to keep the tires shining.

    I've heard Zaino sells some good tire dressing, although a bit expensive, the product received many positive reviews from many automotive forums on the net. Check out their products here: Zaino Website

    Also meguiar's came out with a nice "endurance" tire spray, check out this thread, a few members here have tried it and really liked the results. ;)

    I use Meguires Hot Shine tire shine, it works well. It lasts several days as long as it doesn't rain or drive through puddles.

    I've seen some commercials lately for a tire spray from dupli-color.

    I was wondering about this product.

    I was wondering how this would work on the drop in bed liner, and if its greasy or drys.

    I use Lucas Tire Shine. I doesnt so much give it a complete 'wet' look, but rather a deep, clean, black look as if the tire was just pulled off the rack.

    I actually prefer the "dry" look. Looks more rugged and not so mall crawlish.

    I use all Zaino products on my Porsche. It is a great line of car care but somewhat pricey. The tire stuff lasts along time but doesn't give best "wet" look.

    I like the look with the "wet look" sprays but the problem is the snot-like sling that gets all over my clean white paint. After one drive it slings all over the side and even after wiping it off it leaves greasy spots. I don't think these products are good for clear coat and paint in the long run. But they make my tires look great!

    I freaking love this stuff!!! Spend about 5 minutes a tire, and just use the applicator pad to really work it in there. Always get a lot of compliments on my tires...:cool:
