I use Meguiars NXT Insane shine, but only in a garage....otherwise the wind blows it all over your ride. If any gets on the rims a good cloth gets its off.

Funny you should mention it. There is a Zaino Z-16 tire dressing. It's non- greasy and doesn't attract dirt.

Sorry to drag an old thread up but I am just getting active on this board and reading old posts, I used to spend most of my time over at one of the "other" boards. Besides spring is coming and that means OUT COMES THE BOX OF ZAINOS!...sorry. I'll second the Zaino's Z-16 tire dressing. (I know, it just feeds my addition, but I can stop whenever I want...really)

Pic below: The tire was treated with Z-16 and yes, the stuff is not greasy at all. I also use it on the plastic caps on the top of the bed sides and rear bumper. Notice how the rubber has a more natural black look and not that greasy sheen from some of the other dressings.
(This rim was stripped of the clearcoat and machine polished) then treated with Purple Polish)

by all means bring up old posts




looks good might look into the product more when i finnaly get my ride out



yea the crap i used was a mess came with a nice applicator pad though.... to bad the product doesnt stay on the tire and is a royal PITA to get off the paint the "shine" it had lasted a day but it did stay nice and black for about a week.

another note what products in the longrun wont dry out the rubber and weather check a tire badly ?

The Z-16 seems to make it through the rain intact somewhat. I've never really measured the time frame but I have noticed it still there after a rain or two.
Honestly, I don't think I have had a set of tires more than 2 or 3 years and the Z-16 is relativley new (came out a couple of years ago) so I'm not sure I could answer that fairly, but someone who hangs onto their tires longer might chime in.

Z-16 lasts longer than most.

I apply it once in spring and before each truck show.

Everything else was a weekly requirement.

LMAO, None takin, but I'm curious what kind of beer your drinking; it must have a high silicone content in it It depends what you are trying to do, if the trucks going in a show, a tire can shine alot more than that, agreed. This application was from putting a few drops on the sponge, applying and rubbing it back off I'm still on my first bottle after 2 years and I use it on the trucks plastic as well). I usually only apply it lightly because the trucks going to travel 1500km the next day and it will still look like that when it gets there. If you apply more and leave it on, you will get a much different look. Yes there are products out there that have a wetter look but they usually only look that way for the first 10km. It depends what you are trying to accomplish, I guess.

Ahh I thought that was it and thats all look, I perfer more shine to my tires, but if that can be achived with Zanio, thats cool. I drink Kokanee, it may have silicone in it, im not sure but its brewed in the Columbia mountians, so I would suspect weasel pee, and moose droppings, but what ever it is, it tastes damn good!!
