I've used several different products with varying results. What I would like is a product that will make my tires black (not necessarily shiney) but not end up all over the sides of the vehicle once I get rolling. What do you use?
I like the Miguires stuff that is supposed to last 2 weeks that you put on with a sponge. I don't think it last quite that long, but it looks very nice for at least a week. Also it smells good (like grapes) when you use it.
i bought a product called 'Tire Gel'. it is applied with a 'tire sponge' and seems to stick very well. ( in my rexperience armourall lasted about an hour the turtle wax tire wet lasted a couple of days and this stuff lasted for about a week... )
Well I bought the Meguiar's and it is much better than the Armour All products I've used in the past. With both the regular Armour All and their tire dressing, as soon as I drive away the damn stuff comes out of every nook and cranny and spots up the side of the truck. Since its black, it shows every spot like a neon light! The Meguiar's didn't come off like that and I am quite happy about that. A little did spray up on the sides of the truck this morning because of dew developing on the tires overnight. But the spotting was minimal and the tires still look good.
Wet N BLack ( I think) makes a shine that has color glitter in it. Its a fine texture but looks great in the sunlight. I have silver for my silver E, but they make red, black and blue. I will check the manufacture and post again
Wet N Black lasted almost 2 weeks on my tires. (There is some minimal fade over 2 weeks of Jersey sun and rain) Blows away Turtle Wax 2001 for tire applications. I apply with a sponge and try to let dry to reduce fly-off.
I have used ArmorAll Gel. It comes with an applicator and an orange bottle. It works pretty well..... stays on for quite a while... like 3 weeks .. but shorter if exposed to water. You just have to apply it yourself... not a hard task.
