is there a tire shine that doesn't spin off?

I love the look of tire shine on my tires, is there a product out there that doesn't spin off and end up splattered down the side of one's car?

I have used Meguiar's Hotshine Tire Spray in the past, it is really good stuff and lasts a long time but I did notice that it too spins off and ends up splattering down the side of the car most of the time.

What I like to do is wipe the tire with a dry car sponge after a few minutes. It spreads the product out more evenly, soaks up the excess to avoid flinging it, and takes some of the super glossy shine off. I prefer my tires to have a more dull shine, not look like they've been clear coated.

I think it's more a matter of amount used that promotes more/less spin off. I like meguires too and like the wet look. Usually spray and leave it for a few hours or overnight before driving.
They need to make a tire clear coat!!!

I use 303 on my tires as well as the trim. It leaves a nice, medium shine that lasts, and after doing the tires, the paper towel is still wet enough to do all the black aero at the bottom of the car all the way around.
As with any product, don't use too much, and give it a little time to dry before driving off. Hot weather and having the tires heat up while driving is also going to make letting it dry more important.

I use meguiars hot shine spray but not the foam one! I usually put it on after a wash wait about 20-30 mins and by the time I get to the next place I'm going to only a very little amount was thrown on the fenders. Quick wipe and its good for a few weeks unless you go thru some water then it does fade away.

Be aware if you have the AM/CJP/LRS/AFS/Whatever replica wheels that the finish may not be the happiest camper with the wet-black/spray stuff. A tech at the tire shop I trust to do all my wheel/tire mounts said that they see a TON of these replica wheels with clearcoat issues because of the tire shine and wheel cleaner stuff. And this particular tech is a mustang nut too.

His advice? Soap and water on the rims and then interior wet wipes on the sidewalls being careful to not get it all over the rim. Worked fine on my 98 GT with replica Bullitts.

I have tried a lot of various tire shine products and hands down Croftgate tire shine is the best one. I do detailing vehicles on the side and my customers love the look of the Croftgate tire shine and how long it lasts on there.

Oxford5ponitoh certainly knows I'm a fan of this stuff and while I may come off like a distributor of it, I don't sell any of it. Although I have thought about it because their products are really good. I got my entire shift group hooked on the tire shine from Croftgate.

I know you have been talking about new wheels and tires for a while now so I felt like it was okay to rip on them a bit. Hahaha. Your a good sport. I can't wait to see how the wheels transform your ride.

I know some tires(from working at a tire shop) won't let the tire shine stay on it at all. No matter how hard you try to make it stay, it won't. Not even duck tape can fix it haha

Should we say something about being careful not to use a product that will harm or attack the integrity of the sidewalls on our tires?

For sure! I've seen products harm the sidewalls, and if you harm the sidewalls too much they'll just break and that's not good what so ever. Can damaged your wheels if it's bad enough.

I've never tried this but here is one example. I've also seen a few in spray can form.
