I read somewhere on this forum that armor all extreme tire shine works really well, so I bought and used it. the tires look really, really great. couldn't be happier with the product.

however, I recently read on autopia that if the tire shine contains petroleum distillates, it will cause cracking in the rubber. Is this really true? why would anyone ever make a tire shine that causes cracking then? What's a better alternative?

Thanks

Check the info in this link.

I haven't tried this stuff, but what they say is interesting.

Check this .pdf out. Basically, anything with petroleum distallates or silicons can contaminate the water supply, are not readily biodegradable and are poisonous.

It's best to switch to an alternative product that is the opposite of these things.
