I still have not found a tire shine product I love. The last one I used was called black magic. looked great for a day or two but that was about it. Just go buy anything to show a little love to tires. lol.

Most tire shines won't last long.... You may do a google search for a "tire dressing gel". They seem to hold up better over all but will cost more. I've had pretty good luck with them on my past cars. Instead of spraying them on like most tire shines, its in a gel form allowing you to apply it sparingly on a microfiber towel or tire sponge and then wipe off the access. I don't like when tires have a lot of shine to them, I like more of a matte/natural finish. Tire shines will usually only last 1-2 weeks at most. Some gels I've used can last a month or better with proper application. Just an fyi.
