Tire wet dream come true!!!

To all your mall crawlers out there (you know who you are) there is a new product on the market that is amazing. It's a turtle wax product and it basically is a silicone tire wet aerosol that you spray on your tires and let sit for a few hours and it settles COMPLETELY DRY....and MIRROR GLOSS BLACK....the silicone binds to the rubber, so won't spray all over your truck (the problem with all wet-based tire wets. When you touch it, it almost feels like patent leather. Any over-spray easily comes off the wheels as this stuff only binds to rubber. Just be careful not to get on your back window when spraying rear tire, I had to use the clay bay to get that overspray off. Supposedly this shine gets brighter with time and LAST FOR MONTHS!!

Have to keep this in mind for later...

I love having that new tire look, and seeing as I only tend to go wheeling about 4/5 times a year now, looks like it would be fantastic!

If it only sticks to rubber, why wouldn't it come off your window?

It's beyond me why anyone wants high gloss tires. Especially on a Jeep. Looks like crap to me.

I like my tires all shine and gloss when I wash it, sides usually those products provide some kind of UV or otherwise protection for your tires as well..

That looks cool! Please provide updates as I hate when the stupid armor all in a can sprays all over my Jeep.

Wet tires look good after a good wash and wax, which some of us enjoy every now and then. Just because I own a Jeep doesn't mean I'm going to treat it like a POS.

So it would suck if you had to use that spare anytime soon...
