Default Duplicolor Tire Shine

Have anyone used duplicolour tire shine? I googled it and youtube it and read other reivew on other forum (infinity,bmw, and some old school ford forum) that these people say it doesnt brown, it last a good while. Pretty much great rating.

Ive will be going to autzone here in 5 mins to get it, along with performance red to colour my capiliers and my wrx emblem on side. Then tire shine. And will come back in 2 weeks to update.

Thats IF anyone havent have any experience with them. thanks for reading.

yeah i use their product, amongst the other thing. They do wash out when you wash the car.

With this spray, after a wash it wont come off like any other product. ie amor all or mequirell ... or however you spell it.

I use Meguiars tire GEL and an applicator pad. It will sling if you put it on and drive right away, but once it dries it last for quite a while. Even with driving in rain the tires won't get that dry, brownish look for a few weeks or more

Just make sure its not a solvent based tire dressing, but a water based one.

yeah its clear,but said silicone free. Most solvent comes out clear, sometimes blue tinted

I found a better product for tires and dash... and leather(not a leather cleaner, just shine) i decide with this one!!

The Megs tire shine gel is a decent OTC product, but as mentioned it will sling. I used to apply, let it set, wipe it down with a crappy rag and I'd still get sling, so I'd always carry some sort of quick detailer and a MF rag to fix the mess. I've used the Megs dressing mentioned above and its a really good all around product and I always had great success with Adams VRT which adds a great shine to tires as well as virtually no slinging and it can be used on plastic trim. I never used mothers back to black again and depending on where you live some places carry Adams VRT over the counter.
