    Adam's Polishes Super VRT. I use it on tires, interior, and exterior trim. VRT is waterproof. It won't run like other products. Water will bead and run off.

    Mud and sand work nicely! It exfoliates the tire :laugh:

    I like no touch foam satin finish. Do not like tires to shine.

    I like this stuff. Stays on for about a month. Keeps the ride looking fairly clean! But I like a shinyish wheel and others don't so theres that.

    Check out Tuf Shine Permanent Tire Coating. You clean the tires up real nice once apply maybe 2-3 coats of the tire "clearcoat" and let it cure and you'll be very happy with the results. On my focus I had it on since November, been through rain, snow etc and the tires always clean up with just soap and water and look just as good. Might just add another coat once the weather warms up.

    I use poorboys bold n bright or blackfire tire dressing spray

    if you're concerned about sling, wipe down the tires after application with a crappy microfiber towel. although the 2 I mentioned above dont really sling at all unless over applied

    Zaino tire protectant. Best stuff I've used so far, doesn't sling. Dries to the touch after about a half hour.

    X2, I agree with this stuff. it's really hard to beat! I haven't tried any of the other stuff as it seems to be a regional product and the stores I shop don't stock it or perhaps I'm just not looking in the right places.

    The 303 aerospace protectant was initially developed for the aerospace industry and carried over to the automotive industry due to its success and durability. It works on anything black or any color for that matter. I have used it in the interior of my cars without any problems.

    Now here's a product that's not gaining much attention but has been been rated in the TOP 2 products and its an "AS SEEN ON TV" product. It's called "WIPE NEW" tires. I'm tempted to give it a try but it comes in a very small bottle and is on the pricey side.

    I just spray armor all and let it sit. Nice shine, doesn't sling off, and easy to clean later

    This is by far the best product I've used so far: http://www.amazon.com/Green-Earth-Technologies-Ultimate-Cleaner/dp/B0016LEAUI

    If you're looking for the wet glossy look, look elsewhere. If you want that dark black brand new look, this is awesome stuff. Plus it doesn't turn your tires brown over time like other dressings. It also moisturizes the rubber rather than just coat it.

    I'm also thinking of trying Wolfgang product. Heard great things about it: http://www.autogeek.net/wg4600.html

    Again, it's no so much a glossy dressing as it is a cleaner and conditioner of rubber, which brings the tire back to looking brand new, ie dark black.

    Having tried many products, both OTC and boutique, find I keep coming back to Meg's gold class endurance gel. IF you like a shiny finish, nothing lasts longer. being a gel, (not their spray), if not overly applied, it will not sling off :D
