I've used 303 for years but just for the interior, again too watery a product for the harsh tire environment imop.
303 protectant works great on the interior,,,,,,,,,,,,, I also use Meguiars hot shine.

I am using Armor All Extreme Tire Shine Gel and I like it.
I like this stuff too. Once a month is perfect.

RonMaiden WD40 is ok for your tires but since it is oil based I found when I tried it the tires got dirty quicker.
I prefer an actual wheel cleaner designed to lift brake dust and such and not just shine.

Culbert What about WD40? I am using that on my car tires and never face any problem from last 2 years. I hear that wd40 is a very good spray because it never harm your tires rubber. I think you also should try that once. Good Luck

I am actually going to order right now as the wife's is getting the Liquid Glass, Collinite shine this weekend. Thx again.
I think that is why I like the surf city garage tire shine product so much. Gives it that new tire flawless look but without the over the top shine and slinging junk everywhere.

Makavelli Yeah the stuff is really good, drove in the snow a little and wet pavement and the product has held up well, maybe I'll take a picture when I get home.
