Black shiny tires?
 
What products have you used on your tires to keep them nice and black?

I am using Armor All Extreme Tire Shine Gel and I like it.

I use this stuff http://www.autozone.com/autozone/acc...er=380171_0_0_
It gives the tire a nice rich black look. I'm not a huge fan of the super "wet" look on tires. This stuff basically removes the fade in the rubber and makes it look new.

You really do not want any tire shine on your calipers or disc brake rotors.
you will kill your braking power getting any of those silicone type liquids, even a few drops, on your brake rotors.
The stuff gets on the rotors from sloppy spraying, then is transferred to the brake pads, and basically slippery up your pads so they do not work very well.
Just a comment and a heads up.

Optimum Opti-Bond Tire Gel

I'd suggest not using any spray or aerosol. The gel kind works best.

303 Aerospace protectant...

but generally I just keep them clean. Scrub them down as a last step to every wash. I don't like shiny tires, just matte black.

Ill get a picture of how it looks (after 2 weeks) tomorrow.

Edit: Picture 2 weeks after being applied: A few hundred miles and driving thru plenty of sprinkler run off

Water beads right up

New application. Not really any noticeable difference

Everyone using the spray on stuff - Spray it on the applicator you're using, not directly on the tire. You'll get a more even coat and like said above, you don't want to get it on your brakes.
