    Best tire dressings?

    There seem to be a BA-ZILLION tire dressing products out there, and I think I have tried a lot of them. Most of them seem to work cosmetically, but it's the longevity that is my issue. I'm looking for long-lasting, car wash immune products. Any suggestions?

    TuffShine

    Won't give ya the crazy shine, silicone-infused gloss but a nice mid-level gloss that lasts at least 2 to 3 months.

    I buy a bottle about every 2 years. Not a fan of high gloss tires, this is a nice 'intermediate shine' thing.

    Usually clean tires, apply 2 coats in Spring, maybe another clean/coat in Fall and good to go.

    Did you ever try the TW Endura Tire Coating? If so how does it compare? You make it seem like it doesn’t have the same kind of bold look?

    Nope, have used Gyeon Tire once or twice but aside from that, just TuffShine since 2016. Was the first product i tried that did exactly what I wanted it to do so never bothered looking for anything else. Best tire dressings?

    Sounds like you are in the market to try a tire coating. Most water based tire dressings have a short lifespan.

    Based on my experience I would say McKee's 37 > Tuff Shine in terms of longevity/durability and looks. The key with a tire coating is the prep of the tire.

    Re: Best tire dressings?

    I've never messed with tire coatings, but found Duragloss 253 to have the best longevity on tires than anything else I've tried.

    One thing to keep in mind is every tire's rubber compound is a bit different, even in the same brand. You'll find one product works great on one tire and less favorably on another.

    Re: Best tire dressings?

    tire shines are kind of in the same category as rainX for me. I never get the longevity I truly desire, but it's just so easy and cheap to apply something after wash. I've found the aerosols the easiest to apply with a good wipe with a eagle tire sponge. I bought some mk tire gel that I'll never buy again. It's harder to apply as it's a gel and doesn't coat evenly or easily on beefier tires like on a truck, but works well enough for a slick summer tire. Longevity is maybe a little longer than the autozone special.
