Black Magic Titanium Tire Wet Gel is the best I have ever seen. Even after going through the rain, the next day it was still black and wet looking. Amazing stuff.

Black Majic tire wet last a long time for me. Even if here in Ga, it'll rain a full week, tires still look good. I use aplicator pads or folded towells to wipe on. Cuts down on overspray.

I've been using this product and it works great and dirt doesn't stick too it like the stuff that stays really wet it lasts for weeks and still looks the same just like the bottle says. I think the meguires stuff is the best value for the money of anything

If you prefer the "wet" look, beware of slinging that stuff all over your fenders. I did that for years and it drove me insane. Clean car...looking good...drive down to the corner store...crap all over the fenders...ugh.

I recently started using Black Magic Matte Tire Finish and love it. It dries quick and doesn't sling all over my fenders. Best compliment I ever had with it was on my truck when someone came over to look at buying it. "Are those tires new? They sure look like it." Nope, they had over 60k miles on them and were 4 years old.

I prefer Meguiar's NXT spray-on tire shine. Long-lasting shine and less slinging than others I've tried. Plus, there's no messy applicator pads to deal with.

I just put this on...I'm not sure if the sprayer was broke but this was the messiest spraying stuff I have seen...looked good when I got it all cleaned off the wheels though

dont spray it on the tire spray it on a regular kitchen sponge and wipe it on the tire that works much better and looks better than spraying it all over the wheel

Agreed. Easy to spray with no overspray and no sling.
