    What products do you guys use on your tires? Currently use armor all tire shine didn't know if there was something that would last a bit longer.

    I think there is a whole thread in the "Detail" section about tire dressings.

    I just moved this to the detailing section also.

    Anyway, I use Adams Super VRT on my tires and love it. It's not a high gloss looking tire shine which i prefer. It won't fling off and it lasts a decent amount of time on the tires.

    I love this stuff. Lasts for weeks. Maybe even longer where not as much rain. It’s messy and will fling So let it sit over night.

    Also, after the initial shiny wet look the tires will have a healthy black rubber look after its soaked in/flung off. Great product

    Definitely ditch the armor all that’s the worst, keep it off your dash too

    I experimented with Griots aerosol spray tire shine. It advertised no sling, but that was a lie.. That stuff splattered everywhere. What was worse is I had just spent 7 hours applying clay bar, polishing, sealing, waxing, and buffing to get a mirrored look.. I had to bust out the quick detail spray and remove the spots. What I found does work is spraying the aerosol directly onto a cheap applicator and wiping it on the tire. You won't achieve the ultra wet look but it does shine it well and won't sling.
