Cool Ok let's nail this down for tire shine..

I first tried this on my BMW 318is and wanted to see if it worked and it did - it made my tires black for over a year.. yes it really did.. no I am not associated with the company and I am not advertising this.. it just works.

Por Glo


It does make the tire black.. unlike some other stuff I have tried including that ugly armor all that makes tires go brown. It does not wash off.. and it is best to really scrub your tires with an SOS pad first - claen the tires then apply. Now the color will always stay black - the shine does not stay past a couple months so if you want a 'shine' then yes you will have to reapply - it costs 10 bucks..

The company that makes this has no idea how good it is..

I notice it doesn't say anywhere on the can that it can be used on rubber. I'd be careful with it.

POR-15 reacts to sunlight. It will begin turning a chalky white. The product doesn't lose any of its effectiveness, just changes color.

Also, if you want your tires to stay black and looking "new", hose them down with degreaser or the same stuff you clean your rims with every time you wash the car. Let them soak for 5 minutes or so then scrub with a brush, towel, or sponge and then hose her off.

Not my experience.. I live in an area which rains 4 months + a year and super dry in the summer - temperature average 40-80 degrees. I put POR GLO on my tires and they remained black for 1.5 years. It did not turn white and I did put it on brand new Dunlop tires when I bought them. The only thing I found is they lose shine but stay black.

NOTE In the last post you talked about Por 15 -> I am talking about POR GLO not POR 15 which is for metal and rust.

I can read. In case you can't, 98ESer posted about POR-15 and I was warning everyone that when exposed to sunlight, it changes color.

I'm happy you're happy with your tire shine.

I dont think that will be found in an auto store, maybe a home depot or something similar considering that is made for vinyl, and POR 15 makes POR GLO.....
