I've tried many of those tire shine products for my car, but they all run-off when I drive, and make lines. However, after I try a new kind, I always come back to the traditional Armor-All or Turtle Wax Formula 2001. These work the best for me.

I just bought some Eagle One tire shine and I like it so far. It seems to last longer than the armor all that I used before.

yeah Eagle One is pretty good. Just about all of them give a great shine....I just don't like how they make those "run" marks after driving the car...

Do you find that the Armor-All turns the tire brown over time?

So far, I haven't had that problem. I've been using the stuff on my car for a couple of years now. I apply it generously and keep the tire clean, and it seems okay.

then again, I use 2001, not Armor-all. Maybe that has something to do with it. Try out the 2001...it works the same and it's cheaper. Maybe it'll help the tire color from getting worse.

I use Meguiar's Tire Endurance. Shines up the tires nicely. Armor All turns my tires brown.

I use eagle one. It seems to stay on longer than any of the other products I've used (especially the foams). To avoid the running I spray...let it sit for a while...give it a quick wipe down to smooth it out...then polish or wipe my wheels to remove any excess. I love the stuff.

I go with Black Magic Tire Wet. I don't think many places have it, but it's great. It makes the tires actually look wet and shiny. That's what I like anyway.

the reason that Armor-All turns your tires "brown" is because when you apply it , it is meant to protect your tires. But when you drive your car within a week of when you applied it ..its likely to get dirt in the armor-all. So they suggest to get rid of the "brown" to apply once a week. thats alottttttta armor-all

You can just use Ajax or Comet with just alittle or dish washing fluid when you clean your tires with a good soft brissel brush. The turnibg brown of the tires after about a week or so specially when it rains is actually the road grime and break dust getting stuck on the sticky armor-all. Claen your tires really good with the ajax or comet ( I do it twice) the tire will show a little of brown as it is drying. After it is dry then apply baby oil. After it is dry the tire will return to it's black rich color again. And if by any chance you drive an SUV or a Malubu with white walls or white letters this those clean them up. :banghead:

There is new stuff out by the "Invisable Glass" brand that works extremely well on my X5. The only place i can find it in a store is Autozone. I have used Armor-All for years, and I have never had a problem. Until coming here to AF, i never even heard of it turning the tire brown.

WOW, you should always clean your tires with gentle degreaser (nonbutyl) before applying dressing and try to avoid solvent based dressings / Also IMO ajax and comet are bad ideas for cleaning tires...1 - you need to condition your tires to prevent drying and cracking (both products remove the natural oils(rub some on your hand then rinse and tell me how it feels after))....... 2- using abrasive cleaners around your wheels and rotors - calipers could increase oxidation and cause premature failure of brake linings and damage clearcoated / painted wheels

**note** both manufacturers recommend NOT using them on coated and delicate cookware for a reason**

Turtle wax wet 'n' black...

By far the best that I have tried as of yet. Everytime the bottle went dry, I would try something else. Since I discovered Turtle wax wet 'n' black, that is all I will use.
There is no browning, no slinging, and it stays black for about a week- a week and a half.

By far, shining monkey's no spitting tire shine is the best i've used. i haven't seen it in the stores as yet, but you can get it online.

Meguiars has a new product called Hot Shine it has an adjustable nozzle for wide and narrow tires I really like it. Leaves that wet look without the mess

I recommend using the Meguires tire spray. It comes in a spray can, smells like bug spray, but seriously lasts through a week or two of heavy freeway driving. My tires are always shiny.

I first bleach my tires then use Green stuff or Armor-All foam.

The Meguiars hot shot tire shine and Black Magic Tire Wet Gel are my preferred tire wetting products.

I enjoy using Meguair's Endurance Gel and Poorboy's Trim Restore.

I lean more towards the Poorboy's as one product can be used on so may things such as trim, tires, door rubbers, engine bay, interior dash and door panels etc.

And it does last awhile and does not turn brown!

The best tire shine is Lanes Super Blue Tire Gloss, its what the professional detailers use. It is much thinner than all of the tire shines that you can buy at the local store so it goes on evenly. Best stuff ever!

Use a degreaser on your tires and then scrub it real good. Then use Meguiars tire spray, or No Touch tire shine. This will make your tires shiny and clean

I've tried several products, but my favorite is definately Meguiars! I would suggest applying it to clean tires and waiting a few minutes before driving the vehicle. It seems that right after applying it is the time when it is most likely to attract dust, grass, rocks, etc. I apply it, wait about ten minutes and then drive on!

VRT by Adam's Polishes. It doesn't have a super wet look, but it protects and doesn't attract dirt or dust. Best of all it will not sling off when you drive.

I was a big fan of Meguiars tire shine, that was before I tried Eagle one tire shine. It lasts a lot longer. Good Stuff!

F-21 is what i use.
it is like armor-all, but i think it lasts longer.
just spray it on, rub it in, let it dry, then mist on a little more after 10 minutes or so.
it dosent give that wet look like some gels, but it also stays on a lot longer, and dosent streak off in lines when you drive on the highway.
usually it stays dark and deep looking for a few weeks.

for best results with any product, make sure you clean the tires well.
i use a scotch brite pad on the sidewalls to get the "dead" rubber look off.
this alone will make your tires look darker and newer without any shine.
add on F-21 or armor-all, and you are golden

Best way to get a complete tire clean is first, spray with "SHOUT". This will remove any dirt or grease on the tire and gives the BEST results for cleaning white letter and white wall tires. SHOUT laundry detergent is the best and fastest way to a clean tire. Second, to get the black, BLACK, use Black Magic Tire Wet Foam! It truly is the best on the market! After spraying it on the tires DON'T drive for about an hour so the foam can work into the rubber and dry. If you attempt to drive before it dries, it'll sling it all over the back lower quarter panel. Patience will pay off in big dividends. DON'T attempt to dry it with a cloth or it'll get black smudges on the white letters and streak on the black. Again, patience will turn heads at the magnificent results you'll get. I've taken pride in keeping my cars and restored 1990n Chev truck clean inside and out for more then 30 years...take it from someone who's used the best.

Magic Dressing by Auto Magic is what we used to use at the detail shop....it is still the best that I have found at this time...It is silicone based and not water based like many others on the market...longer lasting.
