Default Recommend me a Tire Gel PLS

To keep this short:
I usually don't use any kind of tire shine/gel/spray. But when I do I use this Black Magic tire shine my pops has in the garage. The only reason I do not use it often is that it slings if I do not let it sit for a couple of hours. (Note - I usually wipe off access with a towel.)

Can anyone recommend a tire shine that does not sling or has minimal splatter?
Something I can get in stores such as O' Reilly's or Walmart pls. I was thinking of going with Megs Purple tire gel..

I use Meguiar's Hot shine After i spray on i use a Tire applicator pad to rub it in and never slings on my car. also recommend letting it sit n direct sunlight for about 5mins after u use pad to rub off the extra. Also u can use Armor all new Wheel protect there new item they just released stuff is dope.

Do you want it really shiny, or just a nice clean matte look?

I use Chemical Guys back to black. It's more of a good looking restore rather than a shiny finish. Looks great and you can use it on any other black/grey interior/exterior trim.

Doesn't matter to me. Just something that does not sling or splatter.

I've tried something similar.. Some kind of back to black product can't remember.

I was in walmart the other day, I noticed they had an endurance spray now. I would probably pick that up for what you are looking for. If you ever want something better than from the local store, my favorite tire dressing is

Poorboys Bold N Bright

Meguiars Hyper Dressing (dilute 4:1)

I used black magic titanium matte spray. Its barely noticeable, but gives tires that brand new look.

I've used Poorboy's BnB, and really like it. You can also dilute it to use it on interior. It's actually the same dressing they use in Natural Look, they just dilute it and add a nice scent for NL.

How does the Hyper Dressing compare with BnB? Seems like it would be considerably less expensive. It might be my new go-to if it works about the same as BnB.

It doesn't have as nice of a perfect OEM look as I like, but for the price difference it really isn't far off. I use BNB when I want it to be 100% perfect. HD for all other times.

I bought some meg purple gel. Nice and does not sling on to the paint if you wipe it down. And it gives a nice shine too. Also armor ultra shine works good too if you can find it.
