Tire gloss, does it damage tires?


I have been told by some tire dealers to avoid tire shine. Some say it weakens the outer tire walls and causes what looks like a dent to form. Another guy said it causes the tires to age quicker and weather crack.

Your opinions?

Fuck that noise! If that was the case, there would be many lawsuits and bitching rather than more and more company's trying to see who can be the most shiny!

Shine those bitches!

I've only heard this about Armour-all. Something that armour all use to have in it caused them to crack. I use black magic, and the truck get washed one every 2 weeks, tired shined and all. These tires have like..9k miles on them in 3 years, and look brand new.

I've heard that if you use any tire shine, but not often, it will dry up the tires and lead to premature dry rot.

Over the years I have heard of people using WD-40, CRC-556, and similar products never intended as "tire shine" on their tires, and suspect that the populist warnings may have arisen from using such things. I have seen CRC-556 in particular reduce certain "rubber" bushings and the like to sticky masses or goo.

Long before the phrase "gone viral" came into our everyday language urban legends such as this found their way around.

As posted above by Eduardo', if there were any truth to the assertion that tire shine products caused damage to tires there would be lawsuits and "be afraid" stories on the nightly newscasts all over the place...

Totally agree, I have been using tire GEL for years, with no problem, its the idiots who put WD40 on their tires are the ones who have problems

Same tires on my 87 for 15 years, every kind of tire shine has been on them ever made I'd imagine. They still look new. No worries.

I use the tire shine in a can, not often, but definitely for car shows.

I use Meguires Endurance GEL! It's one of the very few non-petroleum based tire gloss thats readily available in all autoparts stores. that stuff will NOT turn your tires brown like most crap! Looks great and lasts for weeks, wash after wash

Jazzer,

Many of the tire shine products (like the stuff I use from AAP) do not leave that ultra-shiny--looks like molded plastic finish--but just a nice, looks like a new tire, look. I use it now and then when detailing the car...
