Armor-All Tire Shine

Edit, 8/31/08: Actually, Armor-All Tire Shine may leave your tires looking shiny for a little while, but can be harmful to the rubber.

When seeking a tire shine product, find one that has no solvents or VOC's (look at your tire shine, does it have acetone in it? Think about that!). These chemicals accelerate the process of drying out your tire, sucking the oils out of the rubber. Instead, seek out products like Michelin Tire Shine, which contains no chemicals that would be harmful to your tires. There are others out there (Optimum, Wolfgang), but the Michelin seems to be the least expensive and most readily available.

What is a good commercial cleaner for auto tires and vinyl?

I like the Awesome Brands, Street Appeal Professional. I clean my tires/wheels/rims with the "Wheel & Tire" spray on and wipe off solution which dissolves break dust and road grime. Then I follow up with the product, "Tire Shine" from the same company - provides a long lasting high gloss shine. Both products are safe for wheels/tires/rims. Simply spray on over the entire surface (avoiding the treaded part of the tire!), let the solution stand for 20-30 seconds, for the product to work, then Rinse with water. For the Tire Shine product, you may need an extra coat for a higher shine. Depending on the dirt/grime on the tires, you may need to scrub with a sponge or wash rag/towel/mitt. But definitely use two different mitts, one for the shine, and one for the wash.
