OMGHi2U Wipe New As Seen on TV tire shine review

I got mine at Walmart in a (usual) fit of "why the hell not?" for $15. Application was as troubling as the better tire shines. You clean the tire, wipe on the tire, roll car 2 feet then do that area that is missed due to tire smoosh. Instructions say 2 coats, but I did 3 and that killed the entire package.

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Wipe-New-Tires/36577101

These are my tires today after 4 solid weeks with zero washing other than rain and weekly hosing after applying spray on/hose off wheel cleaner.







Overall, I'm damn impressed as even "good" tire shine, in my normal consumer vice pro detailer opinion goes to hell in a handbasket in 1-2 week. This still retains 75% of original luster. Even when brand new it is not mega shiny...subjectively I'd say its medium in the gloss department as it doesn't look like Vaseliney tire shines and its a step or two above say 303 which is infamous for low gloss when used on tires.

As a lazy/rarely gives two damns about tire shine kinda guy this is pretty dope if you axe me.

Thanks for the review.

Any idea if it's water or silicone based?

No one knows, the formula is proprietary and the MSDS I found online only mentions 2 ingredients which don't speak of either water or silicone. One website said acrylic base but not sure if true or not. Did learn that the company that makes it is oddly 1 mile from my house.

Interesting. I'll have to check it out on my next trip to Walmart.
