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.
