View Full Version : Getting Tires to Shine
I havent been able to get my tires to get that wet shiny look ever since I bought it...I frequently get them muddy so I clean them real well and apply "tire shine" to them but it seems to evaporate or dry up after only a few minutes...any suggestions?

I dont know if this is the proper way to use this stuff, but I use armoral (original) It keeps a pretty good shine for quite a while.

use westleys bleach-white to clean the tires,
then try "WET"(i think thats the name)its a tire gloss or something like that.
in my opinion,i don't like the tire wet look,it attracts too much dust.
The problem with armoral is that it is oil based, oil attracks dust. Just apply any tire shine gel/spray, but apply to coats, I find that this helps on my truck.

All of the tire gels will work very good til you ride it, even dust will stick to them over time. Looks good at first, then just a pain to get clean.

use the armorall tire cleaner. ITs a foam thay you spray on and then wipe off. It works real good. A high pressure wash help out as well.

back when I was still a kid and was into the hot rod stuff here's what we did to shine up the tires. When you wash your tires scrub them with a S O S pad. (the kind for cleaning pots and pans) What you want to do is scrub down every inch of the sidewall. After you've rinsed all the soap from the pads off the tires ,let it dry then apply amorall or whatever wet look product you're using.

You can pick up a can of Meguiars hot shine(spelling?) at Walmart. It's in an aerosol can and it will even stay on after a rain. It's the best that I've found.
