    Best product for blackest / wettest looking tires

    I have used everything from aromrall to meguiars hot shine. Everything either soaks in or spins off. I want a show car wet shine that lasts. I was wondering if you show car guys had any suggestion???? Suggestions on interior stuff too please. Thanks!!!

    The "show car guys " only care if it lasts a day or two. (Me Too)
    So many other products to chose from though......... All good...

    I recently switched to Meguiar's Insane Shine and love it leaves it looking wet for more than just two days.

    I recently went to Meguiars Endurance Shine which looks great, but man that stuff flung off terribly. Granted, my tires could have been cleaner, providing a good surface to work with. Maybe I'll give them a good scrub tomorrow and see what happens.

    I use Adams VRT and while it may not be as "wet looking" as Hot Shine, makes the rubber a rich black and slight shine and will last a long time

    I'm not a fan of shiny tires, I prefer them to look clean and just black.

    The only product I've found that cleans and blackens the tires without much shine is made by Jax Wax. It's a vinyl and tire dressing that also cleans and protects white letters if you have them. It lasts and lasts through several car washes, and even beads up water. Doesn't get nasty either like some other dressings that you can't touch without turning your skin or clothes black. I will say however this stuff does shine if you put it on heavy, I prefer to rub it down for a dull black appearance.

    Jax Wax Super Blue is solvent based which is why it lasts a long time and is better at preserving rubber and plastic products. Because it's solvent based it doesn't sling off either.
    Those other cheaper tire dressings and interior dressings like armorall are all water based with alcohol mixed in, so it evaporates quickly, and can even dry out your rubber. It's purposely made to NOT last long so you use more of it and have to buy more. Money money money.

    Jax Wax is the way to go. Excellent stuff, you can buy in bulk too and save money. I also use their paint products, some of the best wax and spray detailer I've ever used bar none. I've got a few original unrestored classic cars here with original paint, and they look better than most fresh restorations, Even a professional painter has to look real close before he realizes these cars still have their 40+ year old laquer paint jobs they left with.

    ++++on the Meguiars Endurance that thick purple stuff is awesome especially on interior pieces i still have a shine on my Bonneville SLE dash & honestly i applied that stuff back in late august the shine lasts longer on the inside,but only downside is that dust,lint sticks to it,but i just take a damp rag & wipe any dust,lint or bugs off what i like is that the shine is still there even after you wipe it it costs like $8.00 at autozone,but its worth it

    Use Westley's Bleche White for cleaning the tires before you put your shiny stuff on.
    I use it all the time and never get fling off from the tires.
    It cleans / preps the rubber so it absorbs the stuff real nice.

    Autozone has it, or where ever you prefer to shop. I use it for white letter tires. Cleans the white letters nicely.

    This is what i found works best too, the cleaner the tire the better the shine looks and the longer it lasts.

    +1 on the bleche white..... i clean the tire with it then wait till they are dry and use the armor all gel that you put on with a foam pad brush thing and have found that to be the best combo for my tastes... lasts quite a while...
