possible to "saturate" a tire?

I constantly put tire shine on my tires but they just aren't getting as shiny as they used to. there is a pretty thick film on them so I have to brush them down every couple weeks. even after that, they still don't shine as much. is it possible to "saturate" a tire with all that tire spray gel/foam?

Are you cleaning them with a good rubber cleaner? I use bleach-white, it does a pretty good job. There are other products that will remove that film.

BTW - shiny tires are gay.

X3 on the bleach white. Gets all the gunk off. Might take two or three times to get it all if you have it caked on there.

Shiny tires are the shiz. I usually degrease mine and get them real clean, then I'll add tire shine until it stops absorbing.

I always used Bleach White, and applied tire shine. I stopped using the shine a couple of years ago due to build up. It would take weeks to have it evaporate off enough to be able to scrub it off, and it would be dull under it. I like the new tire look, but haven't found a product that I like yet.

Just a thought... If you're using armoral, well it sucks. I'm sure you know what you're doing as your truck is always looking good but, I never get a shine with that stuff.

I like Mguiers (spelling?)

i have always used the wet n black by turtle wax. i just spray the whole tire down and let it saturate in and it lasts for a long time.

Re: possible to "saturate" a tire?

the problem you are having is you use tire shine that has lots off oily suff in them and with that the oily stuff let dirt and other road gram stick to the tire and with that the tire soaks that crap in the pors of the rubber!! use adams all porpose cleaner clean the very good and after a good washing use adams super v.r.t and then with that you wont have the problem anymore
