How long goes the Meg'* last for? My eagle one only lasts a few days if that.

To be honest with you, it'* not really the brand name, its the silicone you use and it last on a good day and type tires you have for a week or two. If you have the rigdes on the side. Regular one, a week.

I use Black Magic "Tire Wet"
its in a clear bottle with a hint of a purplish tint to the solution. in montana, the roads have tons of dirt and gravle on them all throughout the year and even with these road conditions, my tires stay pretty darn clean for atleast a week. $6 bottle....last'* about 5-6 washes im guessing. you can get it at albertsons or like any department store.
