Default what do you use for tire cleaner?

i just recently started using black magic one step wet tire shine and it started giving me some bad results lately.

i went to the car wash the other day and their stuff was great lasted for like 2 weeks.

i use titanium gel, it is either black magic or turtle wax i think. anyhow they make it in gloss and matte finish, it last about 2 weeks, excellent product.

the eagles also have perma black i nthe sidewalls, so they aren't hard to keep black

I guess I am the lucky one here because my boss manufactures his own car washing/detailing chemicals for local distribution, and I can say his stuff is better than any commercial brand I have used. Tire cleaner, tire shine, wheel cleaner...his stuff beats the hell out of other brands. And I get it for FREE

I use stuff from Dupont, it's like $5 at pepboys and works great, keeps the tires shiny for about 3 weeks.

tire gel owns tire shine. tire shine usually flings off the car, but gel stays put, especially if you use an applicator pad.

I stand by NYTECH's tire gel.

tire gel is good, but the silicone based is still better, you just have to spray, wipe in, repeat. and make sure you get the shit off your rims, or you will have tire shine everywhere

you want tire shine or tire cleaner or both...just let me know.

and as far as setting up a group buy, don't have the time or energy to try and advertise and promote...but I am willing to send some out there and see what you guys think and how it compares to commercial brands

I would pay for a sample.


I have found that using the same rag or towel and never cleaning it works better on tires too.

sorry, I forget about this site...as far as the tire cleaner and tire shine...if you guys want to pm me your addresses I will see about shipping some samples out

Sassan: please don't tell me you use a rag to clean your tires...

$10 and I will give you guys a sample of the tire shine and the tire cleaner(it SHOULDl be enough for 2-4 washes)

I've used black magic, meguiars hot tire shine, and black magic titanium. But I actually bought a cheap can of Turtle Wax tire black, and that gave me the best results I've ever had. I couldn't believe how much better it looked, and how much longer it lasted.
