3M makes a good tire shine. I started using it on mine.

When you put that stuff on you need to let it soak in for a wile,,
if you take off right away it'll fling off.. when i do mine i do it the night before and let it sit overnight to soak in good...none comes off for me.

Yes, let it sit and dry, or apply and let it soak for a while, then go badck with a rag an d wipe it in and get rid of the excess. I do that when I am in a hurry......

John, pressure wash your wheelwells, then carefully mask the inner part of the fender lining (the white part), and spray on truck bedliner. I did that on the Zilla. You'll never see that again, and it withstands the punishment quite well.

Consider using CD2 on the tires. Works great.

Mequiar'* Tire Gel works great, but I sparingly apply it, let it sit for a bit, then wipe it dry with a dry rag. Normally I have to wipe it again after a short drive. Now this doesn't give that wet look that some people want, but all that I want is a nice black tire.
