Default Dupli Color Tire Shine

I just recently tried this stuff over the normal Armorall that I have always used for my tires. I must say that this stuff is amazing. It's best to use this just after you wash your car and tires and what not since it needs a "clean" surface to work better. Unlike Armorall that does both shine and clean. You spray the dupli color tire shine on in thin coats and let it dry for like 5 minutes and then you do another coat and so on for like 3-4 coats, it gives your tire that nice "wet" look but with a dry finish. It lasts like 5x longer then Armorall. I put some on about a week ago and my tires still have that "wet" look. The Armorall would have long wore off. If you are looking for some new products to try and you have not tried this stuff I highly recommend it. It is really hard to find though. It comes in a can that looks like a spray paint can. I first found it at Advanced auto parts and got the only can they had and then after I had tried it I went back and they restocked it with 3 more cans, I liked it so much I got all 3 cans since I can't track it down anywhere else. It runs about $9 a can. Here is a link to their site so you can see what the can looks like Dupli-Color :: Tire Shine Coating

I thought Meguiar's Hot Shine was expensive, which is still my tire shine of choice.

I thought about trying that stuff, but let a friend of mine be the 'guinea pig' first. After looking at his tires I'll stick with Meguair's Endurance tire gel. The Dupli-Color did leave a high gloss coat on his tires, but it just didn't look right. It reminded me of laying a coat of gloss clear coat over flat black paint. A couple days after applying it you could see cracks forming in it from tire flex. Thanks, but no thanks...I'll pass...

I prefer the Meguiars Hot Shine over the gel that you put on. Have used both. But I really don't like how the dirt loves to stick to it. Might try this stuff.

I really don't like the gel or anything that needs an applicator to apply it because it's almost impossible to get it in all the grooves and features of the sidewall. Spray has always been the way to go for me and Hot Shine is my preference.
