    just wanted to share my experience with this product i just tried.

    i have always wanted a nice long lasting (not a crazy shine) but a new looking tire. i work at advance auto parts, and i tested every single tire shine we cary in the store, and wasn't very satisfied with any of them.

    until i tried Meguiars gold class endurance tire gel. yes the gel not the aerosol or the spray bottle, but the gel just simply apply it with a tire shine applicator or a applicator pad, and just simply wipe it on.

    i think we have had 2 or 3 days of no rain in the past 3 weeks and columbus area is basically flooded, and i applied it exactly 3 weeks ago on sunday. ( april 24 )

    and it is still shinning. might not be the best shine after all that rain, but it still looks nice. and my truck parks out side and is not garaged.

    the best part is that it smells likes grapes! lol:crazy:

    before i used this i kind off gave up hope and stopped using tire shines because i just was to messy, didnt last or shines to much. but this will defiantly be on my camaro's tires at every car show!

    I use Meguiars Tire Gel too. It does work great, it lasts a last long time too even after car washes. I think I bought my bottle like 2 years ago and it is barely half empty, a little goes a long way. Just don't put too much on or it will fling off onto your fenders. But you do not need to use much.

    I broke down and bought some of this Meguiars gold class endurance tire gel....


    Fantastic product!!!! :D

    My tires were getting a brown stain to them from whatever I used last Fall so I decided to try to clean them up.

    I used some 320 grit sandpaper (to cut into the brown film) then scrubbed them with a moist terry towel to get down to bare rubber.

    It only takes a little of this gel to do a tire and they still look very good two weeks later.... Even after getting caught in the rain and driving on wet roads.

    yeah awsome product, but if you lived in an area with lots of dirt or sand, its will stick to that tire like theirs no tomorrow. we used to use it at a car wash I used to work people would come back saying we didnt clean their tires:/ but then again i live in the middle of the desert
