in my experience with shining tyres,i have tried amour all,dem foam spray,black jack and i can say from trying all.....NONE WORK!!!! wat i use is actually the cheapest of them all......chubby bottle silicone.my technique for getting best results is like this -- make sure your tyres are dry!! i mean it, bone dry!! next take your sponge and apply an arcade token amount of silicone on it wipe the entire wall. then apply double to triple that and dot the tyre at 4 points (e.g top of tyre, bottom and left and right side).then take the sponge and wipe in one direction.dont wipe hard,just enought to spread it.(alya go let me kno :wink: )black jack is too thick.as for amour all on the dash....someone said it does cause your dash to crack,as far as i kno, that's the main reason for puting it there in the first place not to make it shine but to protect it from cracking. i dont use amour all it does not last and is real watery.i use turtlewax f21(green bottle) it is twice as thick and last much longer,its a bit greasier but i havent complained yet.also use it on my black trim on the outside of the car

cheap thing no good & good thing not cheap???? let me tell ya.....when i first got the car, i went out to get cleaning products for my first wash,i tell d man "give me something to shine d tyres"he handed me a bottle of d chubby bottle silicone,i said "what's this, nah, this looking too cheap,give me something better"so he handed me black jack.took it home tried it, tyre just looked black, nothing special.when that was done i "moved up" to tyre spray( cah remember brand)d tyre looked ok but ah hour after it was dull (mind u, d car aint move eah)after that tried d amour all and even f21 on d tyres...well that was a waste..one day i was waking by a car wash,4 cars finished washed and parked up and all tyres blinging in d sun,just how i wanted mines too look.so i walked up to d washer and asked him "wat u putting on dem tyres" he pull out ah greasy half filled chubby bottle silicone.i could not believe it.so i got one, perfected my technique and have never changed from that ever since. 1 bottle last me like 2 months,somethimes more,tyres stay clean for over a week,real minor dirt,dust collection mainly where the treads are(car driven on d grande stretch 5 to 6 times a week with all dem big trucks,body gets dirty tyres remain reasonable)a time i had no silicone,every 2 days i was with a cloth and water to wipe the tyres,they where really nasty looking,as for silicone flying off the tyres and on to the car body.....never experienced it and on ocassion the car is washed just to go out, with fresh silicone on the tyres. as for f21 with dust...its been like over a year now and i have never onced noticed dust on my dash board to say "wayyyy,my dash board real dusty,this thing like it attracting dust"if u understand what i'm saying.it's a non issue in my case

I've used the silicon and sponge method but since I first discovered the aerosol sprays years ago I haven't looked back. Ease of application, cleanliness and laziness were all deciding factors that made me not worry about the cost.

Some of the aerosol sprays are silicone based. But I also prefer the aerosol sprays due to ease of use. PriceSmart used to sell a good one, but I don't see it any more. Usually I go for the Amorall tyre foam. That leaves a nice black finish.

I've used Turtle Wax, Gunk and Amor-All. Using a tin of Armor-All right now.

The Gunk seems alchohol based. I like that one. I think the Turtle Wax is foam based like the Armor All right?

Personally I have used all and will buy whichever one is available at the time

I have heard that the silicone in the bottle decreases the life of the tyre. There was a thread about such somewhere on tuner. Can't remember which forum.

Prices went up to about $45 avg. Lasts for a good few sprays though. Never checked per say. But I'm conservatively guessing 20 washes.

Anyway, I'm sure like me, once you start to use them there's no turning back!LoL

that silicone in the chubby bottle, is there a way to dilute it? I will use that on my rim and something else on my tyre.

note that f21 is not for tire use and works well with just your dashboard once applied in correct amts
