    I LOVE how shiney tires are after detailed at the dealership (after getting work done, etc)..

    What do they use or what can I use to make them that shiney? They look great. :bowdown: Currently I use Son Of A Gun tire foam.. looks good for a day or two, but scums up the rims.

    make sure u clean the tires first with a cleaner. then apply ur dresiing. hmm mabye u have a low profile tire? i dont think so cause of ur logo of a jeep. but u shouldnt be getting the stuff all over the rims. meguairs makes a great adjustable spray pattern tire gloss it looks nice,.

    Personally, I don't like the super shiny stuff the dealers use because as the wheels spin, they fling any excess dressing all over the lower body panels.

    Regular Armor All is actually really good stuff now that they have reformulated it. Lasts a couple of weeks, but it is a more satiny sheen than a really shiny look.

    No..No low pro's.. I have Bridgestone Dueller A/T's.

    So what do the dealerships use? Just regular armor all?

    I use a 50/50 mix of Meguiar's W Dressing and Armor All (on Scott's say-so). Lasts awhile, not so shiny, but that's the way I like it. It's all personal preference, really.
