Darrel:
I use Zaino Z16 on the tires and Z2P on the chrome wheels. The Z16 does not give a super glossy look it is more of a matte finish type of shine. Also there is no sling with the Z16.

I use a product called Super Stuff. It'* a silicone based spray. Does wonders on rubber:



I use it on the engine too. Once I locate a picture I will post my engine shot...

On the paint, I only use Zaino.

i have noticed in the past that some products cause the sidewalls to crack prematurely.

anyone know what products to avoid for tire dressing?

sorry, if this is a highjack.

Its a full cover, I was just trying to get a "gloss" exposure off of the background on the engine bay when I took the picture.
