I'm curious, what do you guys put on your tires to have that WET..SEXY..SHINE?

I just heard that if you add a LITTLE oil(cooking oil)to armor all, it'll shine like the sun but I haven't tried it yet. They say that this is what the dealer do but I'm just saying it from word or mouth.. Unless some of you have tried it already.

Over here there is loads of spray on, wipe on, wash on products to get the look youo're talking about - some even have a slight tint to them so you can match it with your body colour. Personally I don't bother with anything, with my crappy standard rims there's no point.

Look for any sort of wax/spray on substance from your local car shop (pep boys).

TurtleWax makes a nice product. I think they call it tire wax, its a tan colored liquid. Apply with tire sponges. The shine looks great and even. Doesn't spin off as easily as some of the others.

I tried the Amorall high shine on my old 944 and I think it stained my rims.

Meguiar's Gold Class Endurance High Gloss Gel. It seems to last pretty well and doesn't sling off too bad. And it smells like grape soda!

Never tried it, but grape flovored tires, I suppose.

It does have a strong odor. I could still smell it two days after I applied it.

This is the stuff they sell at the dealership in Atlanta. I have been through at least 10 different tire shines before I found this one. In normal weather it holds the shine for 5 or so days. The best part is that it sprays on with no wiping. Takes 30 seconds tops to apply. Same goes for the trim shine made by the same brand...
