+ 1 for Adam's SVRT, it gives it a nice deep black look, but not a lot of shine. I am not a big fan of the super glossy black on tires, plus I can't also use SVRT on more than my tires so it makes it a smart buy for me!

Stay away from most OTC tire shine products, they're nasty!

I've used Black Magic,Meguiars,Armor All and they all have looked great and lasted long enough for me,I prefer the aerosol cans vs any gels or liquid,but as we all know you just got to try'em out and then decide for yourself.

Meguirs endurance. Its purple, applied with a sponge applicator and lasts a really long time. A bit pricey but its worth it. Another i've tried that was really great is black magic matte finish.

Make sure your tires are clean before applying any tire shine. Prep work is the key with pretty much everything.

I've been curious to try the Turtle Wax Black Tire shine. I like the wet look.

Optimum Opti-Bond tire gel!

Matte finish, no sling, dries to the touch and last pretty long. Also not hard to removed like some of the silicone based products. The turtle wax one say to remove with a steel wire brush. Who in their right mind would do that!

Remove? Doesn't it just wear off. I haven't ever removed tire shine...now you make me wonder if I should be. LOL
