Default Tire applications?

What do you guys to keep your tires shiney? I've found Armor All to be pretty worthless. Does anyone know what the dealerships and/or professional deatiling shops use?

I like and use Zaino Z-16. Not all that glossy but it does give the tires the new deep black look.





Here is a link to the 1mb pic.

The Meguiars Hot shine spray SUCKS. It leave so much junk on your tires, and it doesn't spray wide enough for stocks.

The pic was too big, sorry I did not want to have the admins come down on me. I did put in a smaller pic this morning and provided a link to the larger pic.

PDad:
I have found that two weeks is about as long as any tire protectant will last. Are you using one that last longer?
