Need Recommendation for good OTC tire shine

I currently use Stoner's More Shine, Less Time, but I can't find it in the local stores (i.e. Target, Walmart, Auto Zone, etc.)

Is there a good OTC tire shine that lasts a long time? Thanks ahead of time!

Here in the CDN market, I use Black Magic, foam application, works very very well and quick to gloss.

Mothers FX for bling bling shine and Mothers reflections for a matte look.

I heard that the zaino tire shine is insane. Stays on for sometime. I have been using that new Armoral Gel. It comes with an applicator. Holds up pretty well and usually get sometime out of it. I also like the black magic tire shine spray with the adjustable heard. Thats great for getting the whole tire.

I've been using Armor All Gel as well, it's a good product.

Probably not much of a concern being in CA, but up here in the pacnw meguiar's lasts the longest in the rain.

If I'm not being lazy with a spray, and it's not going to rain for awhile, I'll use lexol vinylex.

I just started using the Armoral Gel. Works pretty good. I might try the Zaino stuff if it last long.
