I agree with bulldog, above.

I can't argue it very much, but I just don't like tires to "shine". Clean, black looks good.

Just MHO

I would have to disagree about the wet look being out, but its all personal preference, and i have to go with the meguiars purple gel, or turtle wax used to make a tire gel that was white and once you put it on it melted and left a awesome shine. its really hard to find but once you do its great, no spin off and last forever. I know you can get them on amazon buy looking up tire shine from meguiars, and turtle wax. Good Luck

Neighbor have me some Meguiar's gel tire shine which is easy and lasts a really long time but it is kind of shiny. One coat keeps the shine to a minimum, a second coat I discovered gives a really high gloss which can be overwhelming.

i use the megs purlple gel too. (i like the shiny look on black cars) last a looong time, so no complaints here, just be sure to let it dry overnight or else you'll fling it all over if its still wet.

I don't really like the greasy look. A nice black subtle look always looks classy, and I don't mess with those stupid gels that make everything into a slip and slide.

I just use Meguiars tire spray, it's kinda like an aerosol can. It goes on fast, and has a subtle look.

My Ride: I have an 05 545i. It's a manual with a few options. This is my first BMW but I don't know how I'll ever be able to switch to something else.

That's because your using silicone based products, tbal.

Pick up a good water-based dressing and you can drive around with clean looking tires with no sling on the sides
