Hey!....thanks for the comments. The tire shine i use is armor-all extreme shine....its an aerosol no touch application, kinda messy but it works well if you carefully spray it on your tires and not your rims.

Does it get "thrown" off the tires onto the wheel wells when driving? Most tire applications that leave the wet look do that. That's why when i take the car to the hand car washes, I make sure they know not to put the tire dresing on. I have my own stuff that i use and will be the only tire dressing put on my tires.

I suppose it matters on how clean your tires are before application and also the amount that you put on. Because as far as i can tell you that the tire shine is clear. but today i did notice a little did go flying off.......and i do mean a little. nothing a quick wipe with a microfiber cloth and some mothers quick detail spray cant handle:D .

That's cool. I hate the hand car wash stuff because they put way to much on.
