Talking Tire Shine... which is best?

I buy tire shine from everywhere and every d*mned bottle says that they won't leave a brown residue, and yet.... they still do. I just bought rims and tires and put em on my car today but when i take pics of my car, my tires end up being lighter than my rims.

I want to get tire shine but I'm scared they'll mess up my tires.

Anyone have any recommendations?

i just user basic armorall foam in a can..

it leaves a fairly noticeable shine, and wont splash up on the side of your car.

no problems what so ever.

I use Maguire's Endurance tire protectant. It lasts a long time and looks good.

as an added bonus it smells like grapes but I dont' suggest taking it internally.

Yeah, the Black Magic gel stuff is great! Personally, I prefer the gel stuff over the spray stuff. Haven't tried the foam yet though.

I use the Armor All spray. It works good, just don't spray it on in your drive way it will leave marks. I did it once and now I only spray it on in the street.

meguiars gel works the best, but make sure it is dry before you drive off or u will have it on your paint also. if im lazy and dont fel like apply the gel, i use black magic spray, but it doesnt last as long and doesnt go on as even.

werd. I use the exact same setup.

I trimmed off some of the Eagle One foam pad so the durn thing wouldn't snag on the fender as I go around the tire.

I use Meguiar's hot shine spray. It only lasts a few days, though. Maybe I'll try some black magic.

I use mostly commercial products. Your best bet is to find a detailing supply store or a detailing shop...and buy a tire shine off of them. The stuff I buy is called Blue Blazes. I buy it in a gallon....and it lasts me about 2 years. I dont spray it on, I wipe it on. If you spray it on, it goes everywhere.

The stuff I use is in a clear gallon bottle and the fluid is blue. It also smells like watermelon. It is the same stuff new car dealers use, and it doesnt leave any brown stuff on the tires.


Thats it on the top right.

That stuff does work well. I've got a gallon of the QUIK SHINE from Malco that I don't plan on using because its a little "too" shiny...

Also, the detailer I bought it from suggested using a paint brush to apply it on the tires...

black magic gel and use a 3" applicator pad to put it on......make sure the tire is dry first too.

Wow! Ironically enough I use the same exact set up also..... Whoa! That's pretty funny!

I also use eagle one , when I get the little free tester bottle when buying the (2) applicator pack and it works very well also!

meguires high endurance with gloss.

not a flashy gloss though. makes your tires shine like they're off the showroom floor at your honda dealer. not at all shiny, but sleek and long lasting.
