What about stink-fisted, smoke-laden, dogs howling in unison burn-outs? Are those safe for my tires?

In all seriousness though, I'm not even getting a year out of my tires now that I have a Hemi, so I feel like I could use brake fluid as tire dressing and still not be in danger of them suffering damage from whatever I use to make them look good.

I don't know about "tire shine" products, but the tire dressing I use has UVA/UVB protection as well. It's not a shine, but you could apply more to make it shine I guess. I like my tires black, with just a hint of gloss

I am still on the 1st bottle, and I apply a little just about every weekend. I have also scrubbed the tires clean several time, and started "clean"

He looks like a used car salesman, but this is exactly how I apply mine. I don't use nearly as much as he does to maintain

Not if you wipe it on with a cloth as I said in my post, it also doesn't shine doing it that way
