What does everyone use for tire shine?

I personally use Meguires Ultimate Gel with the applicator as I hate when you drive and the tires sling off the shine... then it collects dust and grime on the bumpers.

So lets hear what you all use.

I use Meguires but it's not the same. It comes in a aerosol can.

I use turtle wax tire gel, I find that the gel kinds last longer and dust/dirt doesnt stick to it like the aerosol spray kinds IMO

Same here. Looks great until the Texas dust cakes up on it. Then I have to wash it off and re-apply.

The best thing to do is make sure your tires are CLEAN. Its better to hit them with a APC, then Adam's Super VRT.

Water Repellent and Strong SPF 40ish, water based not silicone like the others out there on the market. You should see it last depending on weather conditions n etc 2-5 weeks per application. That bottle SHOULD last you about a year or more. No joke I just ran out of mine. Ive had it since the SVRT was released about a year in a half ago.

I used it on my tires on both trucks, my dads truck, my dads car, my moms tires. I saw about 3 to 4 weeks each. VERY little goes a long way too.

I need a tire detail that repels dust. I'd buy it by the box if it were out there.

we both need something to cover the whole Vehicle, it's starting to get really dusty here too.
O and we are getting some smoke from fires too now.

Between the smoke and blowing dust here in Texas, we are going to have to wear respirators every time we go outside.

Is there any kind of "dry" tire detailer? Something that would soak in and make the tire look new, but not be wet on the outside of the tire? Maybe I'm dreaming.....

I think I am going to get that kit that Faze has in his post....

I think that's going to be close to what you are describing.
