I know what you mean. I bought a ST in May and I've blown about $400 easy on detailing supplies. Its a fun hobby, but it can add up quickly.

Nothing wrong with using 0000 steel wool for glass but it has to be glass only. No rubber, plastic or painted surfaces. Will clean and can ploish the glass if done right. I have used it for years to get gunk off.

Tuf shine tire clear coat. Buy the kit and clean te tires real well once and apply the clear coat and you'll be set for quite a while

Black shiny tires?

I bought the chemical guys vintage, it is amazing..

I have used so many different types of tire shines. I use to like the ultra shiny stuff but now days I like the natural brand new tire look with a minimal gloss. This stuff goes on great n makes them perfect looking for car shows n nights out or even just for fun.

I'm not a big fan of washing a car then putting on a shine that just flings off when u drive down the road even if you let your vehicle sit over night. 100% the chemical guys.

Oh plus the stuff is amazing on the exterior black plastic I've only had to put it on once which was like two weeks ago so can't tell you how long the product will last for exterior plastic but def gives you the new look. I did the plastic body parts n the rubber around the windows n it made a big difference. Here is two pictures of the wheels when done with this product.

Night time in my garage.



Next day outside.



The flash n sunlight make them look more shiny than they are btw.. N just noticed someone else has made a review about this product but here is another :)

You sound lot like me; I used to be a big fan of the wet shiny look but I like the "new" clean look. That looks great. I am going to have to purchase some of that stuff. Thx for the pics!

I am actually going to order right now as the wife's is getting the Liquid Glass, Collinite shine this weekend. Thx again.

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.

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.
