What do you put on your tires?

Trying a new tire "gel" this year, and not liking it. It does not seem to last as long as a spray. What have you guys tried that gives you the best result?

I use Meguires back to black. I'm not even sure if its intended for rubber but I use it on my plastic panels and was like, **** it and I put it on my tires too. I like it.

i only use water based tire shines...i hate gels and most sprays due to being silicone based which damages not on the finish over time but the rubber itself of the tire

I used a new tire gel. I will leave company nameless at this point lol. I took great pains to put the crap on, wipe off any excess and got them lookin real pretty. I can't take splatter. So I wipe an I wipe and I wipe some more. I take the wife out, get to 5 guys and I'm like, "baby, you see anything on the car?" She's like "no", I'm like, "whoooooo hoooooo" get home, today I go out and poof splatter! Idc what comes or goes can we please get a company to make a product that actually stays on the tire? I cleaned every inch off with a towel to make sure it didn't happen and poof!

Discount tires brand works really good, so does zaino's. The zaino works really well on the plastic trim too.

When I feel the need for a tire shine I'm using armor all gel. It's the only armor all product I use. Wipe on. Wipe off. Let the car sit for 15 mins. Never had splatter issues with this stuff because I give it time to soak in.

I've been using Mothers FX Tire Shine, and am really happy with it. I used to use either Armor All original or extreme tire gel on my other car, and they both always slung everywhere no matter how long I let the tires dry. I also noticed that when the shine wore off it left my tires brown. Mothers FX Tire Shine is water based so it doesn't have the durability of a gel, but when it wears off it leaves no residue, and it doesn't sling.

Thats good to know... I tell ya theres nothing worse than a dull tire though. But choosing the correct tire shines is a great call

I've been using Black Magic for YEARS, never had a problem, always works great and lasts. Also doesn't eff up your tires.

Not a pic I was taking of the wheels but the best one I have right now.

I've been looking at this stuff called Tuf Shine. It is a water based clear coat that is supposed to lasts for months with our reapplying. Has anyone else heard of this product or have any experience with it?
