Tire shine products are a matter of indecision for many customers because they have heard of tires being negatively impacted by some products. However, when you choose a product from an established manufacturer, you will have none of those problems. Meguiar’s is a manufacturer with a history of over 100 years. Let us check out the tire shine and related products that the company has on offer. Here only the products that we think are the best are presented and that are the most popular. Those products are also our recommendations of the Meguiar’s tire shine products.
Meguiar’s G13115 NXT Generation INSANE SHINE Tire Coating
As the name spells out, you get a deep dark look that is described as insane. Splatter is a bare minimum after it has dried out well. It is stated to be at work over a week of substantial daily driving. It is good for providing a long lasting tire shine. Tire shine with this coating can last for weeks – it can take around 10 car washes in order for the shine to go off. It is silicone based tire dressing. The problem with this dressing is that it is also flammable, so use it with caution!
Meguiar’s G13815 Hot Shine High Gloss Tire Coating
The company describes the product as giving a wet look with a dark shine. The best way to use the dressing is to use two coatings; second one should be applied 10 minutes after the first. Good thing about G13815 is that it is also very easy to apply on tires. Besides providing your tire with nice shine, it also prevents it from browning and aging. It has anti-ozonant technology and it is water-based tire dressing. That means it is made of materials that are friendly to the tire and environment. Because of that, it might not last very long though.
Meguiar’s G12024 Hot Shine High Gloss Tire Spray
It has adjustable nozzle that helps avoid overspray. Tire spray is cheap and provides you with a nice looking black and wet tire shine. This is a tire dressing, so it is only made for tires. That said, it is best not to use it on wheels, but only on rubber. That goes for most of other tire dressings as well. It is one of their most popular items. Tire shine lasts roughly few weeks of normal use. If the weather is bad (rainy) or you drive a lot, it might last less time. It is not the best for tire as it is silicone-based, but if you are just searching for moderately good tire dressing, it should be fine.
Meguiar’s G15524 Endurance Tire Dressing (Trigger)
It is a silicone-based dressing. In line with its name Endurance, the product is stated to be resilient over rain and washes. It is based on a polymer formula. It is designed to dry in a matter of minutes which eliminates the troublesome issue of sling. It will deliver a great level of shine, a satin one, which stays active over a long time. Foam applicator can be used in case you oversprayed the tire. Another great thing about the dressing is that it dries very fast – within minutes. If you want more gloss, you can apply more layers of the dressing. Since it is a solvent based tire dressing, it will last for quite some time.
Meguiar’s D16332 Tire & Trim Gel
This is a bit higher priced product from Meguiar’s. It will give you a nice wet and black tire shine look. There is no slinging after the application. It also offers great water resistance on all rubber surfaces. It is also tire friendly, meaning it is made of renewable materials. The dressing is water based and is made to be high quality (relatively) long lasting tire dressing. Relatively because in the end it is still water based, so it will go off sooner than solvent based dressings. If you are looking for higher quality tire dressing, you should definitely take a look at it. It also offers UV ray protection.
Meguiar’s D17001 Hyper Dressing
You can vary the gloss on this product with dilution, going up to four to one for a satin gloss. It is a water based dressing. It is ideal for use on white letters. Sling is minimum while cleanup is also stated to be easy. It has UV rays protection and since it is made of environmentally friendly materials, it can be also used on other surfaces. So you can also use it for interior cleaning on vinyl, rubber,plastic and under the hood. Light rain should not tear it off, but when there is a heavy rain or car wash, it will have to be applied again. After all, it is water based.
Meguiar’s D17101 Water based Dressing
This is a low gloss tire dressing. It has a coconut-like smell and it is different than hyper dressing because of the fact that it has lower gloss. Sling is minimum while cleanup is also stated to be easy. It has UV rays protection and since it is made of environmentally friendly materials, it can be also used on other surfaces – it is also great for interior cleaning. The dressing is water based and therefore it will go off fairly quickly in the heavy rain. All in all, great quality product if you are looking for lower-gloss tire shine.
Meguiar’s G7516 Endurance Tire Gel
The makeup of the gel is designed to form a shield against water. Product needs to be wiped down which needs to be done with gloves on. It is also recommended that you only use a small amount of the gel and that it would be ideal to let it settle overnight before taking the car out. Dressing is silicone based and therefore it lasts for a long time. It is hard to remove it though. It is not too expensive, so it is recommendable if you are on a tighter budget.
