We have this stuff I get here in Nor-Cal called Stoner Shine Spray made in Redding, Ca. Whats cool about this stuff is it can be used on anything safely. It will also make all the black plastic on the outside of our cars black again and stay black for awhile. I first found it looking for something to make the cylinders black again on my 06 StreetBob.

Snowed all day yesterday. Sun is out and not a cloud in the sky today. Not too cold. Took an hour to shovel out, the roads are already mostly clear. I doubt school will even be closed tomorrow. All good in the hizood.

This guy specifically says he bought it b/c he didn't like spin off. Oddly enough, his ride is white! If I didn't know any better...ox! Lol
Now I have to get some and try it out!

Been using Pledge on my tires for 40 years now, makes them look like new, but not to shiney, works well on most rims also, but I'm ol school and we had to use what we had back then, but I still use it.

I prefer a look that is not too shiny. There are several good gel tire cleaners the can be applied with a detailing sponge. I even use it on the wheel well liners.

idk but any product promoted as shine is unlikely to reduce glare.

Spoken like a true salesman! Lol
I'll probably order the $40 kit next week.
I'd try croftgate based on all the reviews but I like it wet and shiny.

Damage the interior? Why? Its designed to re-condition plastics and rubber tires. What damage would it cause.

I have found any of them work decently if you use a tire applicator sponge. This way you dont get it on the wheel either. Can buy a cheap 2 pack at autozone for like 2 bucks. If i have spray i spray it on the sponge then apply. If you want it shiney then just repeat a couple thin even layers and it will look great without being blotchy or spattering. I like mine a "satin" shine, moderation with everything!

Lurker add his .02

Today I went out to the car to try a new product that should be in many Auto Parts stores by now. It is made by Turtle Wax and I was very happy to find it was extremely easy to apply. It dried quickly and it looked so slick I thought it was still wet but when I touched it it was actually dry and couldn't fling off at all. It was tested by a YouTube Guru who said it lasted about 5 months at the same level of shine. That included a few car washes. It looks like I'll be using this for the Family cars for a while. I think it was @$15.

I also use the Meguiar's and wipe it after I clean the over spray off the wheels.

Daaaaaaam! Stuff works nice!
Few spots that dried on the rim didn't just wipe off with alcohol. Kept drinking and wiping, didn't work! Had to apply alcohol to a cloth and immediately follow with a microfiber towel several times to remove it. Thinking about taping off the rim for the next 3. Definitely dry to the touch! Went 4 layers for extra shine! Haha!

Yeah, absolutely dry! I polished the rims after the tuff shine treatment using a drill and "sponge on a stick" and even when it jumped and I got a little polish on the tire, it wiped right off without leaving a mark! Pretty impressive I'd say.If you see the videos, ppl squeeze the bottle and the tuff shine goes all over. Simply inverting the bottle is enough to let the product flow onto the sponge and a little goes a long way.

Yeah, nice try but we all know as a promoter you get free samples!
And I have to say, tires looked real nice with just one coat. Not glossy but a rich black, and then 2 coats was more satin finish. I'd say it's definitely worth a try.

I use Meguiar's Tire Endurance Gel.... best of all, it smells like grape!

  • Contains premium ingredients that produce a rich shine.
  • Lasts weeks, not days, even through rain.
  • Stops tires from turning brown.
  • Eliminates the mess of overspray, drips, streaks and spotted driveways.

You apply it with a sponge applicator.

That's one thing I enjoy about Meguires products. They all have a pleasant odor.
