    I got hooked on this companys products. I think the trim shine is the best shit ever made. Especially for use on the (forgot what it's called) area between the hood and windshield. For tires...

    The Zaino Tire dressing is the best I have ever used. One coat for new black or 2 coats for shiny black. If any of you guys have ever used a tire dressing and after a some time, days or weeks, your tires start to have a brown tint on them; well that is the product you used pulling the natural oils out of the rubber. Zaino Tire dressing won't do that and it lasts for months if your ride is just a weekend cruiser. That stuff is great.

    It doesn't spin off or dry out the rubber like most other tire shines either.

    Aside from just the tires, I use the Armor All Extreme Tire Shine Gel on the black textured plastic between the hood & windshield; makes it look beautiful!!!

    like third shift said you need to put it on with a applicator. I use black magic tire shine, it looks and works awesome for the price (i buy it from the dollar store for $3 a bottle) i spray the shine onto a cotton terry applicator pad then rub it onto the tires. Its Quick, Cheap, Easy just make sure your tires are mostly dry or it can look bad when your done.

    I might give the Black Magic tire shine a try. I haven't used any armor all products since 97 when my dashboard had cracked.

    I like to stay away from the Gel. There messy IMO, and it's so easy to over-apply the gel which results in that caked on unnatural look. I prefer the sprayers.

    Stoners invisible glass is pretty good but the picture of the tire on their can of tire shine looks nasty-like someone put baby oil on it.

    Yea I normally use the Black Magic tire shine myself and it works good, but your right it does have a tendency to sling itself all over the car. I still like it better than Armor All though. I hate Armor All.

    bottom line is that if its a spray its probobly gonna get on your car, if not from flying off the tired, just from spraying. I stopped using the spray shit b/c it always go on my car even if i used towels to cover the area....I use meguiars tire gel,....the stuff is good. the trick is 2-3 LIGHT coats....if you put it on heavy it will sling ....its all in the application

    i agree. . . with spray you at least get it on your wheels accidently. gel you can put it exactly where you want it. and sense i dont like em that wet looking. . . i always wipe the tire with a rag no matter what im usin

    IDK, I guess i'm the only one that can spray it carefully and apply it without getting it on the car or wheels. I've been using the spray for years.
