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.

agreed! Some stuff will sling all over the door/rocker panel, rear 1/4.

Fwiw, if anyone would like a picture of any of the tire dressings we sell, I can gladly post pics. My 2 favorites are Poorboys Bold n Bright and Optimum Tire Gel though

Best Detailing Product To Keep Your Camaro Like New


I have tried every thing in the world, even mixed stuff to get a better product.
The best I have found is not a "wet look" it is a "new look". This product in a water based, silicone dressing that makes all plastics and rubber look like new. It will not rub off, run off or sling off. After water evaporates product is dry and slick. It can also be used on about anything else, except glass and cloth. It brings out the New natural look.

Auto Magic
Reconditioning Professional's # 1 Choice
Premium- ALL Purpose Water Based Dressing
Super Dress-It #65
1 gallon is about $30, can be diluted. I start at 50/50 for real dirty stuff, then maintain at 25/75. last for weeks.
My last gallon lasted 3 years, on 3 cars.

I am not a salesman. this the greatest detail product to keep your car new.
I am lazy and this is the product for me.

I will supply more details (pictures) if there is an interest in this product.

Believe it or not, Pledge furniture polish works great, doesn't matter if it's lemon or orange. Leaves tires black, not slimy, and doesn't kill the soap in the water bucket. Not that I use water on my car to wash it. I'm talking about our everyday cars that we wash with water. A buddy of mine turned me onto it, I thought he was crazy. Probably like all of you, but I guarantee you will try it. Works Awesome!!!

I recently tried using a new brand called VooDoo Ride. It's endorsed/co-owned by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Their Tire Shine is pretty good. Long lasting and doesn't sling. The only issue I had was that when you apply it it runs onto the wheels but all you gotta do is wipe it off and let the car sit for a little while.

I use Mequiar's NXT Generation Insane Shine Tire Coating (in a can). Works wonderfully.
