Product Description

The TUF SHINE Tire Shine Kit is the most revolutionary tire care system we have ever tested. The gloss it provides your tires is unbelievable and the durability far exceeds everything we've tested on the market. This system brings a long lasting shine to your tires like you've never seen before. Clean the tires with the TUF SHINE Tire Cleaner and scrub brush provided in this kit. Spray the cleaner on the tires and agitate them with the brush to remove any traces of a silicone based product previously used on the tires. The cleaning step is critical to the success of the next step so do a thorough job, until the bristles and foam are white. This will require several cleanings at a minimum and make sure you rinse your brush clean each time with fresh water. Next use the supplied foam applicator and the TUF SHINE Clearcoat and be prepared to be stunned by the results. It instantly provides that truly long lasting dark shine and glossy appearance that you will absolutely love. 1 - 2 coats provides a dark and slightly glossy appearance. Three or more coats of the dressing will give you an overly glossy appearance and increased protection. The incredible shine is sure to grab your eye as the tires will often look better than new. This 6oz bottle should help you care for at least 20 sets of tires as it should be applied nice and thin for best results. Expect the formula to be dry to the touch in just minutes and it will not feel greasy or oily at all. The long lasting UV protection is another huge benefit to this product. It contains no silicone's, oils, etc. so it's completely safe to use. The coating will last a minimum of several months and can last over a year in ideal conditions. It will even withstand several pressure washings because of how strong it is. Avoid using harsh cleaners on the tires as they will fade the Tire Clearcoat, but gentle cleaners are fine.

For maintenance washes within one to two months of the first application we recommend you clean the tires with a mild shampoo. When they are dry you can apply another coat of the Tire Clearcoat for added gloss and protection.

Most other tire dressing products are designed to lubricate the rubber, but it washes off or evaporates over time. When this happens, protection is lost and it's then necessary to repeatedly apply dressings to maintain the desired shine and protection. To maintain a "wet" look with other products you have to constantly clean and apply dressings. Heavy-duty cleaners are required to remove the residue build-up used by most silicone-based dressings. Constant cleaning with harsh chemicals can remove factory lubricants that are built into the tire's sidewalls and removing them can cause cracking and dry rot. TUF SHINE has taken a different approach, which is the opposite of competitors. TUF SHINE uses a semi-permanent coating that truly bonds to the rubber and provides long lasting gloss. This amazing water based formula is great for your tires and it doesn't evaporate or fade in high temperatures.

This kit comes with the:
TUF SHINE Tire Cleaner
TUF SHINE Tire Brush
TUF SHINE Applicator Sponge
TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat

Professional Detailer Reviews

Not only does it provide a beautiful finish to the sidewall of all tires, whether it be a matte finish or a high gloss finish, this product also provides 100% protection from UV and ozone concerns. In the 3 years I've used the product it has NEVER cracked or blistered off. Unlike most off the "off the shelf" tire dressings, TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat is water based and is dry to the touch in just a minute or two after application. It has no oily or gooey residue, will not sling off and will not wash off.

- Product Review: Tuf Shine Inc. by Greg Nichols

What differentiates Tuf Shine from your standard tire dressing is the fact that it's a rubber clearcoat being applied to the tire, and not a "dressing". And after a few minutes drying time, the tire is completely dry to the touch...no black residue will come off onto your hands (or clothes). It's a completely different type product. The finished product is a nice, dark look without being overly glossy, and without any worries of residue slinging onto your freshly detailed car! You should continue to see a nice finish that lasts for months...not days or weeks.

At first after cleaning the tires multiple times, I thought is this worth it? My back was killing me. Then after I started applying the Clearcoat, I said wow definitely worth the pain. The first day I put 2 coats on of the Clearcoat and let them dry overnight. They looked great but I needed more shine, so the next day I put 2 more coats on and got that high glossy shine I was looking for. I would recommend this product to any Detailer who takes pride in their vehicle and has a lot of patience.

This will require quite a bit of work but if you don't want to deal with browning of tires from some dressings, this is currently your best bet... especially if you don't want to always apply dressing each (or every other) wash.

I had to get my car repaired and the place happened to detail my car for me (somewhat a surprise, somewhat bothersome as I wanted to do my own thing and had no idea they'd detail). They applied a tire dressing that turned brown after a week or so of driving... hence "if you don't want to deal with browning of tires from some dressings".

This will be a 4-hour + job. Keep that in mind as you'll need the time to clean/prep, and the time to dry. If you want more coats, you'll need to let each coat dry before another application, which = more wait time.

I had to go through the cleaning cycle a max of 9 times (some only 6 as I scrubbed longer). I basically spent about 30 minutes per tire just cleaning/prepping them. Get adequate lighting (I was doing this in the evening in my garage and lighting made it hard to see if suds were really white or brownish gray).

I applied only one coat (not exactly thin though) and it's been a week since. Still looking good, black, and clean. I happened to wash with CG's Honeydew Foam today, along with Gyeon Iron Wheel Cleaner. The shine has very lightly dulled, but it's still holding up pretty well. We'll see how long it takes to dull.

Pros: Still shining, wheel seems protected well.

Cons: Takes a lot of prep work. The cleaner smells somewhat orange/citrus-based but also an irritant. Keep area ventilated.

I'm hoping this holds up well. I really like the concept of this product.

Like others have said, clean, clean, clean. You'll know when the tires are ready. I'm fairly pleased with the product. It's held up but doesn't really WOW me. Next time I'll try a couple more coats I guess.
