You will want something water based, not oil based. So something that is in gel form when you buy it. That will last longest and won't sling. Any of that spray stuff is garbage.

The Armor All Gel works great. Lasts a very long time, even after rain, snow, etc.

You may be using too much product. Never had that issue and I also have a black one.

Try Adams VRT that seems to last a long time and is waterproof so it won't come off in the rain

Optimum Opti Bond tire gel is all that I use on my personal vehicles. Dries to the touch with no sling, gives a nice clean look and lasts for a decent amount of time.

I would say another thing is some people use way too much product. I've used several different brands and as long as its applied conservatively I've never had any major problems with it getting all over the car.

I vote Armor All as well, but you guys have got to try the foam if you haven't already. Laziest application process and it seems to last just as long as anything else.

Too many people using Armor All!!! Tires aren't supposed to shine. They are supposed to be a natural black. I use Simple Green on a slightly wet tire and brush it around. My tires look great, their black and I don't need to worry about stuff slinging on the paint.

Here's a pic of my show car with nothing but "clean" tires.

I literally just started caring about my tires, just picked up Meguiars Hot Shine spay.

Some others on this thread mentioned they used it as well, but now I'm debating on getting a gel type of shiner.

Never heard of sling, so I guess I'll just make sure that there isn't excess when I finish spraying.

With how many people have just recommend this product it's now on my list to be my next product to test out.

Curious, I have the unfortunate situation of having to keep my stang outside, no garage available at my place. Tire shine obviously helps keep them looking good, but will the gel, or any other product, help keep the wheel walls from cracking?

The current tires I have are from the previous owner, he said he kept it garaged at all times but I'm noticing tiny, hairline breaks in the wheel walls. Nothing too concerning right now but it does have me wondering if there are any good products that are intended to keep the rubber moisturized/lubricated.

When I get my new tires, it would be nice if I could treat them from day one as a preventative measure.

I don't know as far as cracks go. When I bought my Mustang a year ago, the tires and brakes were cr@p, so I changed all 4 brakes and tires at the same time. This was around 03/01/13. I've put around 6k miles on the car since, and not one crack. I too leave my Mustang outside, but I give it a fine clean every Friday.

I have the receipt from the previous owner that states the mileage the vehicle had at time of the tire replacement. So right now the tires have about 20K miles on them and still have a decent amount of life left, at least half, if I stop spinning my tires .

I'm actually wondering if the previous owner had a heated garage that had low humidity. I think those factors coupled with a couple months of non-movement might induce premature cracking. Just speculation though.

When I get my new tires though I'll be driving the car regularly and using the gel everyone seems to agree on in this thread.

If you see small cracking in the sidewalls, you should consider getting new tires. They may be low miles, but they may also be old. Tires can start showing age at 4 years. The set of tires on my Camaro are 5 years old now and they are getting hard. The car will drift around corners and spin the tires with ease. When I first put them on, the car cornered like it was on rails and I had to force it into a drift rather than just giving it gas. The rubber will crack as it ages, so with 6k miles on my Camaro's tires, it's time to replace them.
