    What kind of tire shine does everybody use, and has the best luck with? Looking for one that does not sling. I have been using Griots Black Shine for several months since it has come out, I apply on dry a tire, let it soak in, spray tire with an air hose in the tread of the tire, and then rub with a towel to dry. This is a very good tire shine and I love it, but sometimes, especially on performance tires, or off road tires, ones with aggressive sidewalls and tread, the tire shine tends to sling. I have also tried Meguiars Endurance Tire Gel, which works wonders, but hard to apply on off road tires. What does everyone recommend?

    I have tried several products, but one of my favorites is CarPro PERL. let it dry for a about 30 min before driving and it shouldn't sling.

    Carpro PERL, Opti Bond, Adams VRT, Adams Tire Shine are all great choices if I should name a few.

    Sounds like you're using water based and silicone based. I'd stick to water based because it's easier to apply and is not as greasy. Opti bond is very nice and cost effective. Adams super vrt and carpro perl are also nice and can be used on different parts of the car.

    Thanks for the replies! I will have to purchase all of those and give them a try! I will also look for a water based dressing to try. I believe Chemical Guys makes some that I'll have to buy. Has anyone tried the Dub Tire Shine by Meguiars? Its not a bad tire shine for the price.

    I've never been a fan of chemical guys i would they're certainly economical but imho there are better options.

    Some of my favorite tire dressings are Meguiar's D164 Tire & Trim Gel. Has a similar consistency to Adams SVRT. Blackfire Total Eclipse Tire Gel and Pinnacle Black Onyx. All are water based.

    I am currently giving Detailer's Pro Tire Coating a go right now.
