    Meguiars Tire Gel...the purple stuff that smells like grape. I haven't eaten it yet but I have been extremely tempted to try it.

    I've been using Meguiar's Endurance. It works best when applied to a thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned tire.

    Yep.

    Here is what the bottle looks like. It should probably be in a box with an applicator included inside.

    Armour all sucks lol. Ends up all over the side of your car even after you wipe it

    That meguires stuff is awesome
    Also no spit tire shine by shining monkey. can get it at speed tech. Just spray on and walk away. Smells like cottin candy too. Maybe need to apply a couple coats depending on your tires.

    Turtle wax wet tire shine isent bad either. In a spray can, just spray it on, let it soak in for 5 and your good. Has a nice wide spray nosel too.

    I use the Meguiars' tire foam, it's pretty good. Same deal, spray and walk away.

    But however, it kicks up the shine on my door sometimes, but maybe it's because of my offset on my wheels.

    I'll try the Meguiars tire gel since you guys are highly recommanding it.

    How about Wheels? What do you guys to clean the wheels? My wheels are the volk ce28 in bronze, and it loses that bronze shine real quick after a few days since it gets dirty easily... not to mention the dirt that gets trapped in the lug nut area. I've try waxing the whole wheel, looks good so far hah

    Yeah meguires tire foam you need to wipe, it looks flat after and not that shinny though. A real good tire shine is one that looks wet for a long time and stays on your tire.

    Eagel 1 rim cleaner works great for cleaning rims. Just spray on wait a few min then rinse. The rest will come off easy with a rag.
    Then you can buy some wheel protectant teflon spray that will help the brake dust to not stick next time. Just go to canadian tire or parts source and take a gander at what they got.

    When I want to properly clean my wheels is Blue Magic, works wonders, hard to use though, takes some time.

    WORD, Eagle 1 Wheel cleaner is kik ass. I use it all the time as BMW is notorious for brake dust!! Just spray on and wash off, gets most of it clean in seconds.

    I have yet to put on the teflon spray though. I didn't know there was such thing! I'm gonna have to get that too.

    You can technically get a ticket for each window that's illegally tinted. So as above, if you're being an ass to the officer (or if he's just an ass to begin with), he can give you two. (or three tickets if you're dumb enough to tint the windshield of your BMW... but if you own a BMW you can't be stupid right?)
