Default Am I the only one who hates armor all on their tires

Just wondering if I was the only one who hates armorall on their tires. Dont get me wrong it looks good but it turns my rims black and gets slung all over the paint. Is there an alternative that makes tires shiny without all the greasy mess?

i dont use armor all. i use tire shine foam and before it dries it wipe it down with a rag so its not so glossy and it wont sling all over the place.

Armor All will eventually make tires,dashboards,rubber bumpers,ect...HARD !!!
Don't use it! This info was given to me by every tire shop I went to.

Tire Shine or ANY Vinyl protective spray is the best to use.

Yeah I don't get the tire makeup look myself. Tires aren't supposed to shine - they're made of rubber.
I'll clean my tires and scrub them with spray wax. Then scrub with a rag to remove excess.

tire blackener looks awesome. After I clean my car, everything is shiny and reflective except for the tires. I don't use it on the truck, but on the Trans Am I do and get results

I don't use any armor all product. I don't hate it though.
I don't use any tire dressing either. Just scrub clean with a tire brush and rinse.

you know me all to well! Yessir I hate it. It collects dust, if you rub up against it, u get black shit on you, and after about a week of daily driving, it looks like ass LOL. With my tires, I can wipe them with a white glove and not get anything on your fingers. I hate all tire dressing period on my truck. this is how a clean tire should look:



HOWEVER, I dont mind it on cars, it actually looks good, but on my pickup, I hate it
