The product is marketed as a "spray" but it's a "gel" in a spray bottle. It's doesn't spray very well as it disperses as more of a stream than a spray. As a result, it requires you wipe the tires and work the product into all the little grooves in the tire's sidewall. That's a mess. Further, there's no way to wipe a whitewall or white letter tire without getting the white surfaces dirty. Lastly, it doesn't shine at all. It looks clean. It's a matte shine, at best, and that's a stretch. I'd say one level above flat.

I tried watering the product down so it would spray. Didn't really help. I also tried it on the interior vinyl. It creates an inconsistent surface that's spotty. Some parts matte looking while others are still flat.

Overall, I'd sum up my impression of the product as disappointed. So much so, I threw it away in the trash after two uses. The Michelin product was water based and would not damage tires. Michelin's product blew the Optimum product away and it was less money too. Unfortunately, Michelin stopped making it, which is what prompted me to try Optimum in the first place.

This is a good tire dressing product for the price. It doesn't actually provide much shine or gloss. In fact, after application the surface looks clean and low gloss, almost matte. Tires stay clean looking even after a rainy day. Very easy to apply.

Works great, it's been on for over a week and still maintains a fresh application look. I had a few sling shots on the doors, but I'm sure it was due to my not wiping off the excess, I'll know better next time I apply.

Optimum Tire Shine is a favorite of mine. After a thorough cleaning, I spray Optimum Tire Shine on the tires and allow it to dwell the rest of the detail. This allows this water-based tire shine to absorb into the rubber. By the time I'm done, there's virtually no excess product to wipe off. Optimum Tire Shine leaves a fantastic low-gloss look that won't sling. And being water-based, it won't make the tires "brown" with repeated use.
