    Matte, low gloss tire dressing?

    I do not like the greasy, high gloss look. A little sheen is preferred. Any recommendations?

    Optimum Opti-Bond is a great choice when you want a low gloss, new look.

    Thanks guys.

    Out of curiosity, is the optimum tire shine spray have a higher gloss compared to the opti-bond?

    No, none of the Optimum dressings are glossy. However, Opti-Bond lasts the longest.

    I recommend Meguiars High endurance tire gel. I got the higher shine version but they do make a lower gloss I believe. Actually, the high shine that I used isnt as shiny as those cheap silicone types. I found myself slopping on a bunch to bring up the shine so you may like it. I would definitely call it more of a sheen than a wet look. I've applied only once since my last detail nearly a month ago, and I kid you not, the tires still sheen. They look great! I've washed the car twice since then and that includes a full degrease cleaning of the wheels and the gel has survived. I'm really impressed, and best of all, its available OTC. Get some DP wheel glaze for your wheels and your shoes will look good for a while.

    Surf City Garage Beyond Black is the best I have found.

    I dont use many tire gels, but I have tried some otc tire foams. And they are too shiny, so I spray the foam on the tire and let the product dwell for 5-10 minutes, then I take a clean microfiber rag and wipe the tire, it reduces the shine and helps with tire sling. Alot of customers hate the high gloss look, so this method serves its purpose. Plus these products are cheap and available in most stores.
