Some Jeepers don’t believe in tire shine. They feel it discredits the offroad worthiness of their rig. Personally, I like a dressed tire, even on M/T tires. I’ve purchased a lot over the years. Most dressings last a few weeks, but only looks great for a few days. I read about Tuf Shine Permanent tire clearcoat on AutoGeek’s detailing forum. I thought it sounded too good to be true. It’s not super expensive, but it’s not something I’d expect to see on Wal-Mart’s shelf anytime soon.

There is more prep work than any other tire shine I’ve ever used before, but the results are worth it. Cleaning the tires to accept the coating properly is the most important step. Once everything is done the coating will lasts months, even years.

Here is the process:

  1. Use the included Tire cleaner and brush on a dry tire. Scrub in multiple directions. Rinse the brush often with a hose directly. Don’t use a wash bucket because silicon can be accidentally transfered back to the tire. The goal is to get the tire super clean. Keep applying the spray and using the brush until the suds stay white.
  2. Let the tire completely dry.
  3. Once the tires are out of direct sunlight and cool to the touch, apply the clearcoat. Coat more than once to increase the shine. Be careful with runs and drips. The product dries to the touch and looks great.

Tuf Shine Tire Cleaner safely removes polymers, silicones, waxes, grease and previously applied dressings to leave your tires with a clean and natural looking appearance. Tires cleaned with Tuf Shine Tire Cleaner will arguably be as clean, if not cleaner, than the day they left the factory.

This ergonomically designed tire brush deep cleans tires, ridding them of dirt, grime and previously applied dressings. Its lightweight design and stiff nylon bristles ensure maximum scrubbing power with minimal user fatigue. The Tuf Shine Tire Brush is the perfect compliment to Tuf Shine Tire Cleaner.
