Just like paint, tires need to be prepped as well for a good long lustering shine.

You can use your car wash soap and a good stiff brush or ole wash mitt to scrub the sidewalks to get any old silicone etc off and then reapply your choice of tire shine.

Don't forget those wheel wells!

Is there a specific brand of silicone? Which one is better?

Eh, I was just stating cleaning off the old product on your tires. Some have it, some don't.

I use the TC tire dressing, which can be layered for more shine and depth.

I've used black magic with an applicator and it worked very good as far as the shine and longevity, but it never really 'dried'. An extra wipe of the tires was needed to keep product from flinging everywhere.

It's really all up to you.

I used to use black magic too but got tired of getting it all over my paint. Trying to find something good that wont be a pain in the ass to use.

You were either applying too much or not wiping after. Either way, I'd still give it a quick wipe after allowing the product to sit for a good 10-15 mins.

I use Meguires (sp) Endurance gel. If you let it dry overnight, it does not fling at all. Long lasting too.

Just like BadCompany V.P WS6 said, get them good and clean first. Get all of that old crap off of there, then start fresh.

The Meguiar's Endurance is a good product. Just make sure you let it dry before you take off. It will sling if you don't.
