armor-all extreme tire wet

I went out on a beautiful 70 degree columbus ohio day and brought armor all extreme tire wet. first hour looked great then just dark black finish. I am trying to find something to beat my ice tire wet but so far the ice wins. anybody with better tire gel let me know I sure will try it. I love how some of these tire gels say stays wet for weeks even after rain. I have tried quite a few and none of them live up to that including the ice!

its getting harder to find; I buy it cause its cheap but I do like how it looks. It gives the tires a clean simi gloss look. Advanced auto used to carry it (I bought their last five bottles of it) wally world might still have it.

You can easily get confused armor-all,meguires,turtle wax,tire wet they all have 2 or even more different products for tires. I get so confused. meiguires does have this grape looking stuff you sponge on your tires I tried it looks good it smells even better. Im pretty happy with ice tire gel, I will stick with that

is it the high gloss stuff?
Like I said before, its getting harder to find and its cheap. I'll have to swap to something else soon so your post is doing me a lot of good.

Oh yeah, what about those pics of the bra on your G6?

I use "Grape Dressing" by Hi-Temp. Smells pleasant and after several applications it lasts longer and works better.

Meg's also has a boutique product that you dilute depending upon your desired shine.

search the turtlewax ice sites and you will find it it also has a wheel cleaner that comes with a brush on applicator. Im going on this rainny night and trying my new turtle wax oxy interior cleaner on my black seats that have a few spots on them and trying to get them out.(i will post how well this works later)

I use Meguiars tire gel. It comes with a sponge applicator. I put two coats (30min apart) on each tire, last about a month! Best stuff yet that I've used. It even stands up through Canadian winters.
