Best Tire Shine

There is a tire shine out called Onyx Tire Shine. I have been using it on our stang for a few years now and it is the best tire shine I have seen. It makes an instant deep, dark, wet looking gloss without running or dripping, and stays dark for weeks. Smells good too. Happy cleaning.

RJ, I recently bought the tire shine you are talking about. It goes on great and will not sling off if you follow the directions. Good stuff

Im currently using Eagle 1's Tire Swipes till it runs out.
I have a new box of Meguiar's Endurance Im going to try soon.

I personally like the tire to be black, but not shiny.

Any ideas.

I just got thru going over the engine, hoses, and plastic with some Meguiar's vinyl & rubber protectant and its awesome!
And again its not so greasy like Armour All.

Dennis try Zaino Z-16 Perfect tire gloss, it does not make your tire shiny it looks clean and black It also will work on all your hoses and exterior plastics.
If you are at the Friday show (7-25) I will show you how it looks.

I get this result with Eagle One WET Tire Spray (but it should work with any good tire treatment).

Spray the stuff onto a sponge and then apply to the tire using the sponge (Eagle One has some tire shaped applicator sponges ) until the tire is black and glossy. Let it sit for a while, then come behind with a dry towel and wipe the tire off really good. You should be left with a black, but not glossy tire.

Once heard Zaino Z-16 described as a "medium gloss concours tire dressing". As already said, it gives the tire a nice, fresh, new tire look...not glossy. It also has a UV protectant as well as an anti-static to help the tire stay cleaner. I also use it on the plastic wheel well liners and textured black plastic surfaces. Like all the Zaino products, use very small amounts.
