You're putting way too much on if it'* flinging off like that.
I use only a light coating and make sure there is no dripping. Just moisten a sponge and wipe it on.
I like Black Magic. Good to 150 mph.

I have some tire shine from a dealer. My friend found it in a dumpster at a closed dealership. A huge 10 gallon bucket of Zep tire shine. Works great.
