I love this stuff! I applied these to my tires and they have been shiny for 7 days! And it rained the first 2 days (because that's what happens when you wash your Explorer).



These come in a pack of 25 for around $4. I like it because you don't have to clean any overspray and it doesn't spin off the tires onto the body.



I even use it on my running boards! <-- not recommended for people who actually use their running boards.

I am really going to have to try those. The closest Ive come to a good tire spray is Armor All. Its really glossy in the beginning and lasts forever but attracts a lot of dirt and turns the tires brown. I will have to look for these

I'm going to get some this weekend. I've been looking for something like that. I hate spray on stuff.

I have been using the spray stuff - pouring it on a sponge and wiping everything with it, but I think I am going to try some of these also.

I use the Black Magic Tire Wet Gel, and its a real pain in the ass though because you have to use a sponge or something to apply it, and it gets all over your hands and is very very hard to get off your hands with normal soap. But mainly its what do you do with a really nasty sponge between car washes.

Yes, I used to use the same stuff. There are these concave sponges you can buy that spread it on your tires with one wipe. I used to put them in a ziplock bag between uses but man, I'd rather just have these wipe things. One wipe and toss 'em.

Ditto on the rounded spounge jiggers! Keeps from getting overspray, but I still get gunk slung all over my truck! Might give these a shot as well.

Just go to any normal auto accessories store like Pep Boys, Autozone, or Advanced Auto Parts. Why are you (or anyone else) shopping for car stuff at god awful Wal-Mart, Target, etc. anyway?
