    I was just wondering whats all you guys favorite tire shine products are. Ive been looking for one that makes it looks really wet and shiny,and hopefully doesn't drip fly on my car when i drive. Any opinions? Just share all your thoughts on tire shine here.:)

    Redline D6 tranny fluid. Redline gear oils in front and rear diffs. Bug shield and rain gaurds. Mossy Oak seat covers until I can afford the Wet Os.
    I have just applied the Meguiar's natural shine to my tires. I always let it sit on there for 20 minutes or so and then wipe off with a microfiber towel to prevent it from getting all over my fenders. Looks great to me.

    Any of the gels are good for holding on, but you don't want to rub up against them, black will get on your clothes. I personaly use armour all gel if I plan on driving soon. If I know it will sit for a while I like black magic tire shine.

    I've never used a gel, but between a spray on liquid and a foam, I would definitely go with foam. The foam will last for a least 2 weeks for me (probably longer if it weren't for the dusty and dirty roads I drive on). But non of the spray on's seem to last longer than 1 day.

    The petroleum based products last longer but they attract dust and turn your tires brown. I like the water based stuff. Makes the tires look new! Not greasy and no fling!

    I use the Advance auto parts brand tire shine in the aerosol can. I spray it on then wipe off the excess with a foam tire shine applicator. No fling.

    As Macgyver said, wipe off the excess.

    I apply Poorboys Natural Look Dressing, let it sit for 20-30 minutes, then wipe off and buff with a microfiber towel. Possibly 2 coats if necessary.

    But the wiping of the excess product is key...
    Tires are dry to the touch, with a matte finish. Not greasy. They look brand new.

    I use surf city beyond black, i personally don't like a super glossy shine, just a clean/new look.also works good on my tonneau cover and plastics.
