Which tire dressing to go for?

I need some tire dressing advice...my tires after cleaning them look terrible. Need some recommendations to make the tires look like new (not necessarily glossy).

eagle 1 is what I use... the trick is

--use a toothbrush when putting it on the tires
--wipe it off with soft cloth

^^ That's a bad one. I always get spinoff onto the paint and I barely put any on. I use no touch wet n protect which contains NO petrolium distillates so tires are safe.

Eagle 1 works best for me.lasts about a week or two or.. if I feel lazy, just spray foam stuff every couple days.

I agree with this. I use meguiars gel tire shine too. It last for like a month, sometimes longer depending on how much gel you apply.

You can even make it have a high gloss or low gloss shine. For the meguiars tire gel, you apply one coat for low gloss, or you can apply a second coat for high gloss. I always do the low gloss shine.

Meguiars endurance tire gel works better than any spray on shine hands down.

Most of meguiars stuff smells good. The tire gel smells good, the wipes smell good, and the NXT wax smells good. I have all those products, and love every one of them for the product performance, and the good smell is a plus.

I use the black magic tire gel. works well. The gloss lasts three to five days before it is time to reapply.

Titleist71 can only hope to improve
i don't use anything. I just wash the tire really well. They look good without that grease buildup from shiners. sometimes at a carshow I may wipe on some armour-all to darken them but never to make them look wet, that just attracts more dirt and grime to get stuck on your car.

I like how everyone that uses Shining Monkey says now spin off, just like it says in the add. I've never had any tire stuff spin on my paint anyway.

Agreed, the best hands down. Try letting it dry overnight before you drive though, as there is some spinoff.
