    What is everybody using?

    I've been trying a variety of them looking for the one that doesn't sling off and has a good shine. When the shine slime slings off it is very noticeable on my black truck. Because of this, I usually wash my truck late in the day and don't drive it until the next day, between 12-24 hours later to allow the product to set. I don't expect it to hold on immediately at 80mph after application which is why I'll was in the AM and drive another vehicle that day or drive my truck the next day.

    Let's hear the product reviews.

    The company is called Stoner and their tire shine is called More Shine. Best stuff out there in my opinion. I work for an auto parts store that sells every cleaning product imaginable and all their products are top notch. Their glass cleaner is awesome too.

    I use this stuff.

    It's a liquid and I find it penetrates better than the gel products... and it keeps the tires looking blacker much longer. It doesn't sling off like thicker products.

    Stay away from Meguiars endurance tire spray. If it gets on your paint and sets, your not getting it off. It happened to me Spring of 2013 and there is still spots where its on (my trucks black too). I've tried Alcohol, Paint thinner, Paint reducer, and 3M Adhesive remover, some spots kinda came off, but not all. And the spots you try and get off, you have to rub so much it scuffs the surrounding paint (even with soft cloth), so even if it comes off then your paints scuffed. It's ridic.

    you'd have to order either one - but I use either Poorboys Bold n Bright spray or if I'm feeling good, Blackfire tire shine spray

    both are water based and will not brown your tires over time

    I think the sling has to do with application sometimes. I use a foam applicator with a couple squirts on the tire then spread the product all around. Then roll the vehicle forward to get the area of tire touching the ground. I think if you go heavy applying any product you run the risk of sling

    Pinnacle Black Onyx Gel and BLACKFIRE Total Eclipse gel are my favorites. You can adjust the level of shine to suit your taste. I like the nice, new satin glow of one thin coat. They both cure dry to the touch which is important to me. I do not care for that greasy look that so many OTC tire dressings provide! If you want a more "permanent" solution Tuf Shine Tire Clearcoat is the answer! Many detailers swear by it.

    I am really interested in trying some Tuf Shine. I love Adam's super VRT, but it does not last as long as I would like.

    When I get new tires they will get Tuf Shine before they get mounted. From what I have read a thorough cleaning is a must before application! The Tuf Shine Tire Cleaner is highly recommended for this.

    303.

    If you actually want to preserve the rubber and not just make it look shiny...look no further. 303 will make the tire look NEW but not shiny.

    http://www.303products.com/303r-aerospace-protectant-32oz.html

    Ask anyone who's ever used this, and they'll tell you it's the best. I use this on my spa cover that experiences 100+ degree days in the summer and it look almost new. My spa is 7 years old!

    Some products won't stay no matter how little you put on or how long you let it set.


    303 is an ok product. I have used better.

    Another vote for Adams VRT. You can add more product as you wish to get more sheen out of it rather than the matte look. I like more natural so one or two coats is good for me use.

    "303 is an ok product. I have used better."

    Like what??? If you have something that's better, tell us what it is - I'd be interested in knowing.

    Like I say, in MY case, I've used 303 on my spa cover and my weight lifting equipment, which is black vinyl, sits outside 24/365 and endures 100+ degree summer days...and it looks new.

    I'd challenge ANY other product to match THAT but as I say...if you have something you like, tell me. I'll get a sample and test it.

    Thank you,
    Ed
