Okay so I am a all dressed up rig kinda guy. I like my chrome to sparkle and my paint to shine. Along with that I like the wet look on my tires it kinda goes with the territory. I have read on here that you shouldn't use armor all and the other dressing stuff because it is bad for tires. Is there anything (besides soap and water) that I can put on my tires to make em shine?

Thanks

I think a rubber dressing is a good idea, however, I'd use any OTHER THAN Armor All.. I've shown my custom corvette in MANY shows, and have noticed that Armor All will eventually turn your tires brown. McGuire's works very well.


There's NOTHING more exciting than to be shot at ..... and missed.

NEVER use any petroleum product on tires!

I`ve used Armorall and other tire shine protectants with never an issue! I too like my truck and trailer to stand out! I use what ever I find on sale that works.

I took my sig pic after I detailed them!

OK, here is one we used as kids, mix sugar and water, put on tires and they will shine when dry. Now may attract ants and bees so "bee" careful
I'm sure if you "google" it something will come up on the amounts to use
