    Anyone ever try this on their tires?

    Meguiars NXT Generation Insane Shine Tire Coating

    http://www.autogeek.net/menxtgeinsht.html

    I'm tried it for the first time earlier this evening, just before it got dark. It looks pretty good so far (very shiny) and I'm going to let it dry over night. I'll have to tell you about spin-off and what not tomorrow after I drive around a little bit...

    Wrong forum. If Jmac is nice, he'll move it to Interior and Exterior enhancements. Otherwise..

    black magic is the best thing for tires.......that spray crap gets all over the rims and is a ***** to clean up and could eventuatly fock up your rims.

    I second black magic. Use a GOOD QUALITY paintbrush to apply it (I use Purdy brand) and your tires will look like WHOA!

    I use Turtle Wax nano tire foam. It doesn't make them gleam, it makes them look new which is what I like. Water still beads up on them after 2 months.

    tried it (Tire Wet) before, too much spin-off all over my side panels. Talk about a bitch to clean up...

    By new, are you talking just really black. I don't mind that too much, but I really like a good shine...

    Yep, makes them look black and natural. I don't like the shiny stuff, looks gaudy. I'd rather detail a car to make it look brand new instead of gaudy.

    I use Maguires Endurance High Gloss.
    Works pretty good.

    The LAST thing you want to do is to get tire shine on your paint. It is an oil which can stay on the paint with regular washing. Polish it, don't wax it. Wax will only cover it up. Notice: wax is an oil, why does it stay on the paint for so long?

    Forgot how **** you are about calling wax, "wax" and polish, "polish"!

    I used Meguires Cleaner "Wax" to remove it.

    Good to know. I never Noticed it, but I also wipe the tires down after it sets on them for a little while.
