Preferred Tire Gel

So I already have a favorite tire shine spray (Stoner's More Shine), but sometimes I get frustrated with the overspray or want something that lasts a little longer. I'm looking for a tire gel that isn't very glossy, but something that gives a nice, dark, clean finish. Anyone have a favorite?

Check the link out below.

Beyond Black Tire Pro The no gloss finish that shines, by Surf City, it's the best stuff I've ever used!

I've found Surf City doesn't sling either. Only use once every other time.

Man I just tried Mcguires endurance on my forerunner what a horrible product.

Awful overspray and more sling than a 4 x 4 in a mayonnaise pit.

Hot Shine is the whip so far.

I'm assuming you tried the spray and not the gel then? I'm looking for something that's a little less glossy/greasy than the "High Gloss" line that Meguiar's has. Is it possible to get a more matte finish if you just use a small amount, or not really?

Meguires gold class endurance high gloss. Been using this for years. Trick is not to put too much on

+1 I am liking this stuff a lot. You can also get it at Pep Boys.

I also happen to like supporting the company--local to me, and they are cool folks.

I might pick some up from a local Pep Boys then. Does it last very long? It costs a good bit more than the other options.. is it worth it?

It's more than most but I feel it lasts at least 2xs as long. I haven't washed mine in 2-3 weeks and they still look new.
