To take this a step further..

What doesn't spin off? I've used the Eagle One and Meguiers products on my Firehawk (the sponge applicator kind) and it doesn't matter if I let it dry on for two days or two minutes before driving it, it slings off when I go down the road.

It'* tough to get off the paint...not to mention it makes me cringe.

I use Zaino Z-16 Perfect Tire Gloss. It does not give ou the really wet tire look but you get a nice satin sheen that will last two weeks and there is no sling on to the car'* paint.

Is that the purple stuff that smells kinda grapey? I think that what I use (yep, I'm too lazy to just go look).

Thats what I've been using as well. I'm liking it more than the Eagle One stuff I used before.

If it is, then that must be the stuff that Rogue put on my tires last year at B-fest. By far that was the best stuff I'd ever seen, it lasted well over a month.

Actually looked when I was washing my car. The Meguire'* Endurance High Gloss is definatly the purple (and appropriately) grapey smelling goo. Love that stuff...
