try the jet wet,made by blue magic.spray on,dont have to rub in.i use it on my tires and shines like new money,for weeks.roll vehicle a tiny bit to spray were car or truck was sitting.if it gets on rims or caps wipe it off or wipe it on.where i do my nexen rodian tires is in road,black asphalt,stays on road for months,even if it rains.now my friend has goodyear tires,and his dont shine like mine,when he uses it.must be different rubber on tires.if you use this,i let mine sit for 30 or 40 minutes.then i drive it.heck if it slings any off on my truck or car,just take a rag and wipe it off.the end.

Meguiars Endurance GEL!!!! Grape smell. I have used a ton of other products and this one lasts the longest and gives your tires a great gloss look.
Nothing super wet looking but it lasts so much longer even in rain.

2x on endurance gel. Make sure you clean the tires off with a soft brush. Then apply gel

I don't think I could oversell Duplicolor's Tire Shine. It's pretty much clear coat for your rubber. Lasts for about a month and is dry to touch.

I tried this brand autohaus from new zealand. Its so easy to apply and shines just right and its not a dust magnet. I believe it can also be use with other materials like rubber and plastic trims.

It may not be the best, but I'm very impress and content with Autohaus tire shine.

I do agree with you.. Looks pretty promising, but the question is won;t it be a dust magnet gone wet?
