Good tire shine that wont sling, but leaves a nice shine!

Any recommendations for a good tire shine/gel that wont sling and leaves a nice wet shine?

All the stuff at the auto stores shine nice, but sling like crazy.

I get this

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I use it for everything. Interior, tires, motor. I guess it's not really that great when it rains (waterbased), but whatever.

I think the water-based products will reduce the sling issue, and will be less likely to stain your garage floor, but the oils in the silicone-based products are what produce the wet shine you mention, so the water-based products may have more of a matte finish.

I like the water-based products, such as Zaino:

and 1Z-Einszett:

good luck

I've been using Poorboy's Bright 'n Bold Tire Gel for the past year and I will not switch to any other product after using this.

The shine is perfect with ZERO sling and the product smells like coconuts.

I like Blackfire Total Eclipse Tire Gel. I tired Wolfgang Black Diamond and found it a lot harder to spread than the Blackfire. Meg's Endurance gel is good stuff also, but the downfall is the fact that it isn't water-based.

+1 for the meguiars endurance. Easy to apply with foam applicator, great shine, no sling, and it lasts a long time. It keeps my tires looking black for a few weeks and I literally have no complaint from it

http://www.amazon.com/Meguiars-Class...words=tire+gel

It's not too glossy but it makes the tires pop which I like

My current favorite is CarPro PERL. It will last a couple of months. 1 part distilled water to 1 part PERL solution for tires and 3 to 1 for just about everything else. VRP used to be my "Go to" but it got bumped once I tired PERL.

Garage List
+1 for blackfire tire gel. Keep to the gels and they won't sling. Leaves a bold black satin smooth finish.

Same here. Love PERL. Two prior favorites, Zaino and PB's Bold n' Bright have been permanently displaced.

The only other product I also still use regularly which comes close to PERL is Optimum Opti-Gel.
