Turtle Wax Black Tire Coat. It's expensive, but easily lasts 2 weeks. All I do is wipe with water in between applications and it stays shiny.

Also if you let it sit for about an hour it dries wet looking and it won't spray onto your car when you drive.

This stuff works great. Keeps the tires looking good for quite a while.

Has anybody from Canada been able to find Chemical Guys Natural Shine Dressing? I can only find it online, and the shipping charges are a little much for my taste.

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 posted that same question up since I knew about that 20 years ago but I've always just stuck with actual tire stuff and some people fear it can age tires prematurely using it continually.

Ever used their wax? I just bought an ST, and want to give it a coat of wax before we get to far into the summer. Hopefully Chem Guys wax is just as good as the tire dressing.

I've used their extreme depth wax but I like their m-seal sealant better.

M-Seal after 6 months.
