My old OCD urges coming back, and I'm feeling the need to keep the tires clean and shiny. I used to use ArmorAll, but I recall that it left the tires with a brown coating that was impossible to remove. I haven't kept with the latest, what are some of the favorite things you all use for tire dressing?

For years I have used Pledge furniture polish. Kinda has a satin look, not too glossy.

I use comet to clean the tires, then 303.

Comet with a brush, makes themn look new. the 303 makes the shine last longer

I use meguiars endurance high gloss. It's a purple gel and it kind of makes a mess but the look after is great and lasts a long time.

Meguires Hot Shine. Careful if you use too much it will throw oil on your hull. Works well in the water too (at the ramp)

I guess it's unanimous, I'll use whatever I can find in my garage.:) I never would have thought about using Comet. Interesting that no one uses ArmorAll. Thanks for your replies.

2nd for any and all Meguiars products. And no, I'm not a rep. :D

I hate using this stuff, it gets all in the wheel wells and like Sodar said all over the front of the boat. Makes more of a mess than it's worth. my 2 cents.

Whatever's in the garage. Even WD40 will give them a quick shine.
That brown scuzz comes right off if you wash the tires with Bleche White or mag wheel cleaner.

I only waste the free armor all on the fender wells of my truck. Other than that no one here owns armor all because it is bad for boats!
