For cleaning of the tires I have always used Bleche White and for cleaning of the wheels and tire dressing I use all Meguiars products. They always give me the look I desire.

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 Attachment 7262
Just bought some...can't wait to try it

Turtle Wax Black Tire Coat...awesome stuff so far. Expensive and only good for 2 applications, but it lasts a lot longer than other products I have tried. Several days later with some rain and they still look that good.

Today to clean the paint the @ssh0les at "Day 1 Paint and Body" left on my rims, I had to use 0000 steel wool pad with some dawn and water. Then I dried the rims off and used the 0000 steel wool pad again with some Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish. Then i used the Mothers ball for rims with Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish. Then I removed it with a micro fiber towel.

Oh ya and I removed the rims from the truck also so I could get the entire rim. Ill try and take some pic's tomorrow.

I use Chemical Guys Diablo gel wheel cleaner to clean the wheels.
Tires get coated with Tuff Shine tire clearcoat.

How long will one if the 16oz $25 bottles last? I clean my truck once a week (usually) and apply tire wet only when needed.
