Suggestion: Tire dressing

What's your go-to tire dressing? I've been using Duragloss and it's ok, I'd like it to have more shine.

Meguairs Endurance Tire Gel. I put it on, wait a few minutes and buff off some to eliminate the flinging of it.

I put this on mine over a year ago, I'm just now going to re-apply for added winter protection:

If you like more gloss, you'll have to use petroleum based dressings (which sling off more if you don't apply them properly). Meguiar's Endurance is a good one.

I prefer water based dressings like CarPro PERL, Ammo Mud and Chemical Guys VRP. A bit less shine, more of a clean/matte look.

Yes, they have a full line. We have several local detailers that use/sell the products vs. having to buy online. Their VRT Dressing is less shiny than their Tire Shine.

This, plus the grape scent is fantastic.

I'm a fan of their VRT tire dressing. It holds up well and provides a subtle gloss to the tires. I'm not a big fan of the "wet" look on tires.

I like Meguiar's MD40. It's not a tire dressing, per se, but works fine for the purpose. Plus you can use it on your door seals and anything plastic/rubber, really. Very versatile including around the house.

Used the AutoBrite Endurance. Love it

Instead of wiping it after leaving it to dry, I just drove and I could see some fling. So I'll need to wipe it after my next application.

TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat. It is a water based clear coat that last for months, not weeks. It can be layered depending on how "glossy" you want. It takes a lot of prep works for initial application though.

I use 303 on my tires applied with a sponge, it doesn't last long but the sheen looks awesome and it never flings off.
