    Tire dressings

    Just wondering what type of tire dressings people here prefer. I used up some Turtle Wax stuff I had laying around, and after a recent rain, my tires turned grey I guess I'll throw that bottle in the can. What's a good dressing....either spray or gel type?? Thanks.

    Re: Tire dressings

    Zaino Z-16 (liquid), Stoner More Shine Less Time (spray), Meguiar's Endurance Gel (gel) are some good choice, it depends on how you want your tires to look, i.e. how much gloss are you looking for.

    I definately don't want to comb my hair in them, that's for sure. Just something that gives a nice dark semi-gloss sheen.

    Re: Tire dressings

    I use Black Magic tire shine. I don't spray it on. I pour some on a sponge and wipe it on the tire. It last about 10-14 days. It is perfect for making the tires look wet black and not doesn't look like you have to much on.

    Re: Tire dressings

    I use Meguire's Hot Shine Tire Dressing. Works good considering its a spray with adjustable width for tire size. Its a semi-gloss (which I prefer for my Vogues) verses straight gloss. Stays on for around 2 weeks depending on rain and where your driving. Im good with a weeks worth since I try to wash my car weekly.

    Re: Tire dressings

    I second MacK's sentiments. I regiously use the Meguire's Hot Shot. It gives a great look and will last for a couple weeks with no rain. It doesn't get thrown all over the wheel wells either. I think I've tried just about everything on the market and nothing else I've used works as good.

    Re: Tire dressings

    I do not, but Ive acutally had someone personally ask me the same question before, and Ive wondered if its the "newer" cadillac suspension designs that cause this?....Im on my second set...love the look but I keep having a cracking white wall problem with each set...Im lookin at goin back only after about 4 months of having them.....do you have this problem?

    Re: Tire dressings

    Actually I do have that problem too... Maybe I should consider something else for tires.. If I think about it.. Pro's verse Con's... vogues = bad.. Only Pro being the looks.. Cadi dealer says the ride on them is pretty bad.. then of course the bad wearing.. cracking whitewall and price. Guess ill have to figure that out before purchasing my new set of rims.
