Why don't you spray some Testor High-Gloss Transparent clear coat on your tires :lol: They will stay shiny 24-7

I agree with Ringo, Meguiars is about is shiney as it gets. Also it last for a few weeks even in rain. Just my .02

ok so what's the right way to put it on???
what kind of applicator pads do you use? i use the black magic pads that came with a free bottle like im going to use that. :lol: but you can get it at any local advance autoparts for a $1.99 it works well with them, cause i cant seem to find any meguiars applicator pads in my area.

Zaino makes a great tire gloss...looks very nice.

How long does the meguiar's tend to last?

I just put it on with a regular ol towel (that gets hella dirty, so i only use it for tires). The greasy shiny look lasts for about 1.5-2 weeks or so, and the black look lasts for about a month.

Put on multiple layers of it (wait for first layer to dry and then put second on). Check your car for spray-off the next time you drive it, and clean it up.

i like ranch, maybe french dressing. depending on whats on the tire.
j/k

i like to use tire cleaner first while i wash the car, scrub, rinse, scrub, rinse. it gets all of the grim, and old ranch dressing off the tire first, then apply the good stuff to dry tires.

i hate how when you apply the gel to the tires and they're a tiny bit moist (even tho they look dry), it messes up the application. after i wash, i towel down the tires and wait about 10mins until theyre entirely dry.
