Awesome tire wet!
 
Turtle wax Black Tire Coat. This stuff looks amazing and is super easy to apply. It really does look wet after it dries and so far it has held up a few days. Definitely worth $10 and I plan on trying it in the engine bay tomorrow.

But, but it 10.00 and I can get 2 cans of meguires hot shine for about a buck more. JK I have been wanting hear a review on it.

Its been a few days now and I washed the car and wheels twice. Still looks good. I thought I was gonna have to put more on but one application is good after a week. Do it!

Does it make a mess like Black Magic?

willsbma 01-23-2013 04:46 PM

No mess! It takes an hour to dry but no sling and it isn't greasy so no dust sticks to it

No shine should ever touch the engine bay. a lot of these products can destroy coolant hoses, sealing rings, etc. leave it matte like from the factory. theres plenty of high end safe conditioners meant for engine parts, if you must. search detailing forums

Are you for real? Its made for rubber tires bro. Hoses under your hood are rubber also.

Yea, but not all rubber is the same. I wouldn't go near the engine bay with this stuff...

armor all tire products, for example, are also supposedly made for tire rubber...but i would never even put it on my tires.

btw, some hoses are resistant to oils and fuel, while others are not. huge cost difference seen through the range of various hoses.

also, not everyone's engine hoses are rubber. for those who have certain aftermarket parts, there could be silicone ones.

furthermore, i have seen some tire shines/sprays permanently damage paint protection film and wheel finishes. i can't imagine what that does to some of the engine bay's components.

i would not strictly go by the labels/instructions on product containers. for example, some wheel cleaners' labels say that they are safe for anodized wheels but end up not being safe....

does this stuff turn your tires brown? most of these tire dressings will turn your tires noticeably brown after just a few uses..

Thats dirt that was lifted from your tires. You should use a good tire cleaner, let sit, and spray away. Then apply tire shine after that.

Just be careful when it begins to peel.. Stuff can be a total PITA
