Getting shiny black tyres?

Can anyone suggest a product that brings the tyres out shiny as they do in the garages? RRS

Give them a good scrub with all purpose cleaner, when dry a coat of tire shine, various brands our there auto glym, megiuers I have tried a few but if you put too much on it slings itself on to the paint or it washes off in the first puddle you see

Best I have found is gloss-it signature tyre gloss but at 20 it's expensive but last

A clean tyre before application I'd say is the most important thing for it lasting longer which ever product you use

Poorboys do a tyre shine, Natural Look..about 10. First application fives a rich black finish, and a second one makes it glossy. No fling if left to dry for an hour, and lasts about 2 weeks.....good product

Current weapon of choice is Meguiars High Endurance Tyre Gel

MrF, I've used this stuff, looks great but flings like he'll and leaves a very very oily residue on the paint.....and then the brake dust sticks to the alloys....

I use the meguires tyre gel and find it very good, I work it in with a sponge in fact it's one of those quick shine shoe sponges that had dried out, it's ideal and as long as you work it in well very little fling Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up MY10 3.0 HSE Santorini Black, Ivory Premium & extended leather, privacy, paddles, diamond turned alloys, Ipod lead that charges, tasmods, rrsport.co.uk stickers

Jeep 4.0 High Output XJ 94 6" teraflex lift, c/w rear coils, 9500lb winch, 35" TSL super swamper boggers, safari snorkel, custom made bumpers, tom woods custom double cardon driveshaft, twin electric fans. Don't follow it..............you wont make it. The first 4 x 4 by far.

Megs always flings, no matter what. Looks great, but better water based solutions out there. I will post up a link from DW that shows a group test.......it's lunchtime here and not much to do!!

so did I foxy, thats why i got rid of it made i right mess of the white paint

The Gloss-it tyre stuff i use, I apply via a sponge scourer, which i spray on the sponge and wipe it round, I also keep the sponge in a sealed bag, that way it doesn't dry out and i use less product Thumbs Up

I do the same mate.......the water based milky solutions tend to work best although they don't look like much, they stay on longer and last for at least two weeks....now that's enough about my sex life, and back to Tyres!
