Question Best detailing products?

Hey all,

Anyone know a good website recommending the best detailing products?

Or, what is good for shining tires, cleaning wheels, washing the car, waxing etc? What do you use?

Thanks for your help!

Check out http://www.carcareonline.com/howto_articles.html for some really good advice on detailing and products.

Also, autosupermart.com has a discussion board about car care products. I think the consensus there is that One Grand Blitz Wax is the best. They also recommend 3M Imperial Hand Glaze or One Grand Omega Glaze as a pre-wax polish. Supposedly this is a good step if you have a Japanese car with dark paint.

3M make really good car care products, but they can be expensive. I really like all the products from Stoner's, their tire shine is unmatched, and the window cleaner works like a charm. For wax I like Zymol

From what I understand, autosupermart will delete posts that refer to products they don't carry Certainly, that's their perogative, but one I don't agree with. Try the forum at http://www.autopia-carcare.com . . . very little in the way of holy wars ("my product is better than your product, nyeah"), and lots of helpful people and suggestions. The trend there is toward synthetics (Klasse or Zaino) instead of carnuba . . . I switched to polymer sealants instead of waxes about five years ago (first Liquid Glass, now Zaino), and I'll never go back (just my preference).

If you ask anybody on the Viper Club forums about the best car care products, they will almost universally recommend Zaino Brothers products - http://www.zainobros.com.

I use their stuff on my cars and the results are unbelievable.
