Default How Do You Make Tires Shine With Household Products?

Just washed the car, and I don't feel like driving down to get any tire shine. Anything around the house I can use? Thanks.

just use the "real ****", because it's proven not to crack your tires

or...get some pig's belly meat(the one is 2inch thick of pure fat) and rub it on your tires

i'm thinking that if the sugar penetrates the sidewalls of the rubber and crystallizes.. you could weaken the integrity of the side wall..

I have tried like every tire shine product known to man... so far the one that I have found to be the best is Turtle Tire wax. I have the least problems with that flinging up on my car (white car) and it seems to last the longest, and look the blingiest.

Mequires is quite nice too. For the most part, anything you don't spray on gets my vote.

I'm sure some cooking oil would do the trick if you are really that lazy. Click the image to open in full size.

i am pretty sure that if you are going on a date in the evening the girl will not notice the dirt on your tires. if you're planning on using tire shine and then driving on a dusty road, you're more screwed than you started off..the dirts gonna stick to it playa.
