How many people here use the armorall tire shine? I used to use it then i noticed all the grease it would create on my fender behind the wheel, are they any other alternatives? I just love when the entire car is shining in the summer.

i usually dry off the walls of the wheels completely and apply the foam shine stuff. then by the time i'm all done drying off the car, it's good to go.

If your into the shiny tire thing, look into megs endurance. The new formula is supposedly no sling.

To really eliminate sling here's what I suggest.

1-Clean tire with APC and a stiff bristle brush

2-Dry tire completely, should be completely black when dry.

3-Apply the product in a thin coat and let stand for a time (15min maybe)

4-Wipe excess product from tire.

5-Repeat 3&4 until desired shine is acheived.

6-Enjoy your shiny ass tires with no product sling on fenders and quarter panels.

This is the only stuff I've found that doesn't go everywhere. It also has an adjustable nozzle for tire size, so you aren't wasting it.

1. Clean the tires (i usually go to a DYI car wash and scrub them)
2. Make sure they are 100% dry
3. Put the nozzle on the thinnest tire setting
4. Spray it on and wait about 15-20 min
