heh ive tried that and still perfer my hot shine, cant beat the ease of applying it.
i always use the sponge applicators. i shoot a little across the bottom of the tire (no bald spot and you dont have to move the car ), spray some into the applicator and wipe the rest on. i dont like the sprays because they get all over everything. again, my vote is for the ultra blue tire dressing :thumb:
well the hotshine you can adjust the spay size, it smells sooo good and I dont get any on my rims, it drys and doesnt fly all over the sides of my car when I drive off. We all have our own little favs I guess.
Matt, where do you get it? im willing to try something new especially if it doesnt sling off. there are few if any that truly dont sling up the side of the car. ive heard some good things about Zaino's tire shine too... just havent tried it :dunno:
Any place that sells Meguires, here in Canada I go to Canadian Tire, its like a home/auto store. Try pep boys or what ever, walmart has it too actually. Hot shine, it comes in a aresol can, I dont mean u can spray it and drive right away but give it like 5 min and your golden usually unless u do super thick coats.
Let me know how u like it.
I don't like any of that Black greasy look, I use this stuff and a good firm scrub brush
Westleys Bleache-White Tire Cleaner
This stuff kicks serious butt, leaves your tires looking like their brand new right off the shelf, like a new eraser :thumb:
I've used that, it's good at getting the grime off the tires.
It was origionally made for cleaning white walls, hence the name.
For tire shine I use 2 different kinds.
I have a tire clear sealer I use on my stang, it's like a clear coat that's very flexable, lasts 6 months or more, and is dry.
nothing sticks to it. Got it at a show here last fall, new product. I'll have to go look at the name.
On my truck and Freestyle I use the new teflon tire spray, drys good, not sticky, doesn't fling off, and doesn't
have a buildup of black shit that needs scrubbing - I like that.
Here again I'm at work, not sure the brand name. sorry...
Poorboys Bold-N-Bright water based so it dries to the touch and looks awesome.
here's a pic of my stuff.l
Dupont teflon tire shine, and that sealer I mentioned.
good god thats a lot of crap to clean with
nice man, detailing is sure addictive.
u try that hot shine yet?
wow i should take my car to u!!!! how long do u take to setail a car interior and outside???
Bring it over, I'll clean it up for ya.
If I'm doing a buff / polish it takes 5-6 hrs.
If I'm just cleaning, touch up shine ect, 3-4 hrs.
touch up's beteween heavy cleans depends on how dirty it is.
It sure is.
I did auto glass in high school,
when you install and clean a new window, it's perfectly clear.
after that, dirty window bugs the crap out of me.
I'm always telling my kids "hands off the windows" lol.
I haven't tried the hot shine.
does it have a build up of black shit on your tires that need scrubbing?
how long does it last?
that wierd sealer I have works pertty good, I put it on my tires 6 months ago, still shiny, and
completely dry to the touch. like a clearcoat. wierd but it works good.
You gotta clean the tire to bare rubber before with they're cleaner stuff,
then coat with the sealer, and it's been good 2 go.
Car's kinda out of commish for a while so it hasn't seen alot of drive time...
I dont notice it build up any shit on the tires? It lasts like 2 weeks fairly shiny but will keep them dark for a long time I like the shiny look though it lasts good even thru a couple car wash's (I dont wash the tires of course then just the wheels)
Armor All just came out with Extreme tire shine. It's a gel that comes in an orange bottle. I will use this from now on. Pretty cheap too.
Enjoy scrubbing the grime off that will build up - previously refered to as "black shit"
Actually I haven't tried it, but I have my suspisions... ???
Matt - I'll try that Meguires Hot stuff next.
I use Forever black, its a gel i bought from autogeek, I apply with a foam pad. It is like a die and lasts a long time, gives it a dark matte look, i hate that greasy look.
Well I put the Hot Shine on yesterday and my wheels were slightly wet, (water beads etc) I sprayed it on, put the can away, fired up the stang and ripped to the gym and there was NO fly off on my fenders whats-so-ever.
