    Not as concerned with what it costs as I am with how long it lasts. I don't want to have to dress the tires weekly. Will be trying Tuff Shine soon.

    The ranking is just my opinion

    How do you rank these qualities?

    I see your point. Longevity more of a convenience thing.
    Pretty much same as you but I think 1,2,3, might be a tie for first.

    Great effort, robmick! Thanks for doing that. While there are a lot of other subjective things to evaluate, this spreadsheet will help me narrow down some candidates based on price.

    And that helps. Any chance you can expand the A and B columns a little wider?

    Re: Tire Dressing Chart

    Tuff Shine seems like the most expensive, but after the initial application, it requires only a tiny amount of product to rejuvenate the finish. It does dull over time, but a 16 oz. bottle should last for years. Previously I was using Pinnacle dressing, and I went through a 16 oz. bottle in a couple of months.

    I want to try Turtle Wax Endura-Shine to compare.

    I have some Eagle One Tire Gel in the spray bottle. I didn't see it in the chart. Does anyone use this? What are your thoughts?

    Another plus if it's:
    - Not attracting dust
    - Touching Free
    - Natural color or nice gloss black
    - etc ....

    According to the chart, which one do you like best?
    A listing of gloss from low to high would be nice too. Tires never look very good for very long. I don't particularly care for high gloss look. I just want something that makes them look kinda new for a few weeks. (and I don't want to spend a lot of money doing it).

    That's a nice chart! Just keep in mind that some products, PERL for example, are cut 1:1 for tires, so the price goes down.

    Though you really want two coats to bump up the durability, which would negate that dilution savings I guess

    Re: Tire Dressing Chart

    Am I the only person here who uses Aerospace 303 on tires?? It's just over .50 an oz, lasts FOREVER, and you can spray it on and forget it.
