Question How to get shiny glossy wet looking tyres?

What's the best way to get the wet look on your tyres? I want something that lasts more than 10 wheel revolutions.

Any reputable products? Whats everyone using?

Cheers.

This is the best Ive come across, its a gel & it comes with a sponge applicator, so theres no overspray like with spray on products. Also there is no spray/splatters over car body when you drive as it dries to form a sort of glossy film over your tyre.

Great Stuff

CRC 808 Silicone spray. Just spray it on. Wipe off excess with a rag (but this dulls it a bit, I usually leave as it's sprayed). Available from most hardware/auto parts stores, about $10 - $12 a can.

Maybe I applied too much but I found it sprayed all down the side of the car after awhile. Also the applicator sponge starts getting very dirty and torn even. You end up getting it all over your hands when you have used the sponge several times. But the end results are the tyres look amazing.

Also changing a flat tyre is a pain if you have recently polished them! One of the reasons I keep some gloves and an old rag in the boot.

I was just at the tyre place and saw a product called "Wet Look" by Eagle 1. It was a silicone spray and was recommended by the guy but i didnt buy any. I'll just stick to my Armour All.

i have both Meguiars Endurance and Eagle 1 Wet Look, both have the good and bad points. Eagle 1 Wet look goes on in an instant (its a spray bottle) but it comes off in the wet and often sprays on to the wheel guard when driving. Meguiars Endurance takes a bit longer to put on, but stays on better, though as said the applicator dies to easy, both do give a very nice 'glossy wet look'.
