Meguires 40 for tires and other rubber parts. Not real shiny, just a really clean look. Dries fast so no worry about "sling". Also good on vinyl, not greasy looking or greasy feeling.

Semper Fi
Just cause it's loud don't make it fast and just cause it's shiney don't mean it's protected. Remember, going fast cost money, so just how fast do you wanna go?

I used turtle wax wheel and tire cleaner with wax on mine. Sprayed it on and within a few seconds my tire was brown from all the dirt and stuff coming off. Only thing is I didn't read where it says to dry the wheels and tires so my tires had a white chalk on them. So I did them again when I washed the whole truck, drying the tires this time(which left my white microfiber pure black, eek) and I only have a little white chalk on the side of the tread

For tires I use the turtle wax black tire coat. It's the only thing I've found that is actually like a wax for your tires. It lasts at least a month. Even in the rain. I drive down a dusty gravel road to work every day. My tires usually get a weird brown substance around the sides. Since I started using this stuff, I just put it on and it lasts and you can spray your tires off when they get dirty and they go back to being shiny as they were the first day I did it. This stuff is pretty pricey for the amount, but in the long run its cheaper bc you use it A LOT less than other tire shines imageuploadedbytapatalk1346810737.814485.jpg
