    Spray on the Armoral and let it dry, don't wipe it off

    I'm not one for shiney tires. I use the black magic matte finish on mine tires. It makes them look new. I wipe the tire down with wesleys bleach white to get the letters bright white and go over the tire with the matte. Looks just right.

    Depends on the look your going for. To get the clean, new tire look, I use bleach white or simple green just to clean the rubber nicely. I usually use regular armor all on my tires for the shine. Usually spray on, let it soak, spray on again, and lightly wipe away the drips.

    I use Wesley's Bleach White to clean the tires (even black walls) and then follow up with Meguiar's Endurance tire protectant. It comes in regular and high gloss so you can pick which look you like.

    Depending on how high up you are in the mountains, Tire chains might be
    a good 'polish' for your tires. ;-)

    I prefer nothing. Silicone based products like armour all damage tires.

    My tires never last long enough to even notice whatever damage they do. I only keep mine for a few years each time.

    I like the shiny look and use Black Magic Tire Gel. It applies on a sponge, so no drips or spray to get on the rims.
