Better than anything else ive used! It is on the high shine end though for tire shines. I like the bling though

BTW all the new ICE products are really good. I LOVE the spray synthetic wax. I use it as im drying my car and it leaves it nice and slick!

Agreed. I started using the Turtle Wax Ice Synthetic Tire Shine back in March and it's been great and has a nice smell (like the inside of a cold ice cream parlor or something lol). Before that I used Turtle Wax Wet and Black. I liked it as well but I'm not too picky as long as the product isn't messy and doesn't leave an oily residue for months to come. Oh and agreeing with bufferdan... the other ICE product I've been using for a while now is the "Total Interior Care". It is also a great product especially on the IS interiors. It isn't harsh at all, works on any surface, and doesn't leave surfaces greasy/shiny. Anyone else tried it?

Good to know. I'll give it a try next time. Running out of the Endurance shine stuff. No more grape jelly!

Strange. Found a whack of Shining Monkey at Part Source in Canada no less. What's better, Turtle Wax Ice or Shining Monkey? Thanks.

I like a few products: OPT Opti-Bond- water based, nice deep dark look without a reflecting shine
Car Pro PERL- water based, versatile, good durability, adjust the look with dilution
Meguiars Hyper Dressing- VERY versatile, great look, cost effective
CG Liquid Extreme Shine- oil based, high gloss, great durability, slight sling if not wiped off tire

Over the counter I have yet to be pleased with products, but I hear Armor All Tire Gel is a great product!

i'm really interested in some of long lasting stuff. i like the wet shine and the deep black color. bling bling shine is good, but not priority. my cars a daily so i need it to last. some of the non over the counter stuff i've looked into that you might also be interested in is: zaino z16 and tuff shine. maybe some professionals will chime in with some experience

I use 303 too. Lasts a bit longer than Armorall and gives tire a deeper color,not that wet type shine Armorall gives. I think it protects better too. You can find it at a marine supply

Call it lame. Armor All tire foam. It's cheap as hell and give my tires a good deep look for two weeks or so. Personally hate the shiny bling look that most others give. And the foam is super easy to apply.

+1 on the Meg's Hyper Dressing
It can be diluted with water up to 4:1. I use it @ 3:1 and it shines nicely. A little more than a "new" tire.

I bought a gallon and made 1 bottle, and am just getting to the end of it ( after about a year ).
This stuff is going to last me forever !

I absolutely love Shining Monkey Tire Shine. It's super easy to use since it is just spray on and the tire looks clean without looking glossy. They don't make them anymore so it is a little hard to find in stores but you can sometimes catch them on eBay for 10-15 bucks a can.
