Tire shine

I have been using Slick from Fictech and not a big fan,although a bottle would last a long time,it is very messy and is sticky which attracts dust and dirt,also takes a while to dry,so does sling onto your paint,so was looking at some different brands,although for my tires don’t usually like to spray on tires,because there’s no way I can prevent them getting on my chrome wheels,but saw a ad about Cover All tire shine,it comes in a blue can I think,and is a aerosol can,anyone use this product thanks.

I use Adam's. It dries pretty quickly where I don't worry about it slinging and I use their tire pad that you can spray the shine onto that and wipe on tires. So you don't have to worry about it being on the wheels.

Applying any of them with a sponge is the best way. You get a nice even coat without any runs and dries quicker since it’s a nice thin layer.

Chem Guys silk shine. use a microfiber applicator, let sit then wipe off residual. lasts me weeks and looks great no matter what. be sure you get all the brown crap off the tire first.


Always use a microfiber applicator.

Having tried many of these (I prefer the shiny look on tires as well), Adams is the best I have used. Dries to the touch in about 10 minutes while retaining the shiny look, no sling at all. Their black hex grip applicator is great as well. As an added plus it smells really good, like banana pudding.

I happen to have an extra 16oz bottle I got in a mystery box, if you pm me your address, I'll be glad to send it to you to try out.

I have plenty, I buy it by the gallon. Which I'd recommend if you like it. They sell a funnel that attaches to the top of the spray bottle as well, which makes refilling really easy.

The Adams Tire Shine has just the right amount of shine for me. An it does not sling if applied correctly.

I have been using Shine Society tire shine . It has a long lasting coating that lasts through the everyday rains of Florida lol. It has a good "new tire" silk look with out looking too glossy. Doesn't sling off either.
