Re: tire shine?

Funny thing, after reading this thread I just went out and applied more hot shine, wiped over the tire with a foam applicator to get it even etc. So I'll see how it dries overnight, must say they look stunning now but if the excess slings it aint worth a damn.

I was in a rush the first time I applied hot shine, wiping the excess off after a min or two so time will tell.........

EDIT: I got a year out of a bottle of Megs Endurance gel, stupidly good value for money.

Re: tire shine?

I bought the Black Magic Tire Gel and agree that it does a nice job. It does not spin off to the body. However, it never really dries. If you brush the tire with your clothing you end up with a mess. In Western Canada we do not yet have the MEGUIAR'S ENDURANCE tire gel at Canadian Tire or other outlets. From the US posts I read that it dries to a hard finish. I will give it a try as soon as it is available in Calgary and report back.

Re: tire shine?

bought the endurance at walmart for $7. very nice product, better than the aerosol foams or even standard armoral protectant. best product I've tried yet.

Re: tire shine?

It's going to last you a long time because it doesn't take much to cover the tire. Apart very lightly and then wipe the rest in with a foam applicator.

Spray it in the wheel wells too.

Re: tire shine?

I used to use Armor All spray foam for shining tires.

But Aerosol Meguiar's Endurance = pimpin.

Doesn't get better than that.
No doubt this is the best stuff. it is the only stuff I will use and have been for YEARS.

Re: tire shine?

Meguiar's Hyperdressing is the ticket. Especially for big tires. Buy a gallon, cut it to 1 part dressing and 2-3 parts water depending on how shiny you want them. Spray it on and forget about it. It dries smooth and nice. It's water based so it's easy to get it off your paint if any get's on it. It does not dry out your tires like all the silicon based products listed above.

I've used the Endurance Gel and it was great as well, but I may have to try the spray. I just like the Hyperdressing for the economy of it and the fact that it's water based.

BTW, if any tire dressing is slinging off, you're using too much. I've used every kind out there and if you put too much, it's going to sling, if you don't, it won't. Water based stuff like hyperdressing dries better than the silicone based stuff, so it's more forgiving if you use too much.

Oh, and if you do want a silicone based product so it will last longer, Ultima is the best out there, but it's like $30 for a bottle and it's way too expensive to use on big tires. But that stuff is the bomb to use on trim pieces, blows back to black, etc. out of the water and lasts for months

Re: tire shine?

I just had a horrible experience with with Endurance aerosol, but I will still use it, lol.

I sprayed the crap out of my wheels, and pulled the Jeep in the garage, and left it over night.

Well, I didn't wipe away any excess, so the next morning I goto work. When i come out to the Jeep for lunch, there is spots all over my entire Jeep where the tire shine had slung all over it. Of course, my tires stick out about an inch and a half from my fenders, and I didn't wipe off any excess, so it is completely my fault. But damn was it hard to get that crap off the body.

I wiped it down that evening, and all was good. Lasted about a week until we had a heavy rain yesterday. I must admit, it was the shiniest tire I have ever seen - and I have worked in detail at a couple different places for a couple of years.

Re: tire shine?

Washed my WK almost 3 weeks ago.........the paint is dirty but the tires are still shiny and clean. Been through rain storms and drive the irrigation puddle every morning.

Man look at that PB8.......

Re: tire shine?

Endurance lasts a while. Mines just about completely worn off. And was had some heavy rain for the past two weeks. By far my favorite.
