Default Tire shine...

What tire shine do you use? I have tried the liquid meguires and the liquid eagle one and black magic. Neither of them seem to last long, or apply evenly. What do you use?

I use pretty much whatever foaming cleanser is lying around. However I agree with you that they are NOT "touchless" as advertised. I usually spray all 4 wheels, then go back to the first one, wipe it down (doesn't take much wiping), and work my way around the car.

I find this works nice. The tyre shine in my sig is not altered, that was the black magic foaming cleanser using the above process.

meguiars is the one I used, it works really good and its like an aerosol spray thats good for controlling (doesnt get on your rims) I also tried the eagle tire shiner that worked good but gets on your rims.. Just dont buy the turtle wax brand one.. waste of money

the purple meguiars endurance stuff is amazing...smells good too! that stuff goes on thick and stays on pretty good. I have not had much luck with sprays but the purple gel stuff works wonders.

Im not a fan of that pruple gel by Mengulars. If you do not rub it on, it slings. I just use tirefoam from eagle
