Optimum Tire Shine 17 oz.

Now with greater durability and more gloss enhancing tire protection!

High gloss shine without solvents or VOCs!

Petroleum solvents are the old way of formulating tire dressings. They create an attractive sheen at first, but the solvents leach out the protectants that are applied to the rubber during manufacturing. These protectants would diminish eventually regardless, but petroleum solvent formulas accelerate the process. In just a short time, your tires become dull, brown, and cracked.

Optimum Tire Shine is a completely different kind of tire dressing. It contains no solvents, VOCs, or any other hazardous compound. Instead, it contains methicones, which are both safe for your tires and safe for the environment. By replacing the petroleum solvents with methicones, Optimum has eliminated the risk of ozone, which is caused by the release of harmful fumes by solvents.

In addition to an environmentally conscious formula, Optimum Tire Shine is an excellent tire protectant. It shields your tires from UV rays and ozone to preserve the color and texture of the rubber. The thick formula goes on easily and clings to the tire. Tire Shine’s durability outlasts the average tire dressing, and repeated applications will not cause yellowing.

Optimum Tire Shine is for drivers that prefer a deep, wet-looking gloss. The finish indicates that your vehicle is a finely-detailed machine. Your tires will look freshly dressed all the time, and the rubber will remain in like new condition.

Don’t put your tires at risk of premature aging by using petroleum-based products! Optimum Tire Shine is a completely safe, solvent-free protectant that produces a durable, glossy shine on rubber. You can also use Tire Shine on all interior and exterior trims, vinyl, and dashboards for the same gloss finish and lasting protection.

If you enjoy glossy tires on more than one vehicle, or you just don’t want to run out, get Optimum Tire Shine in the gallon jug!

It works
this tire shine works but on my tires it does not gloss much.. its kind of matt finish which i prefer anyways..
Easy and effective
Always looking for an easy to use tire product that has a shine above matte but not plastic shiny? This is the stuff you want. I spray onto a microbier wax applicator and just wipe it on before detailing the wheels. A second coat adds more shine but one coat gives me what I want. I can do all 4 tires in 5 minutes with no overspray or sling.
ProsEasy Gives me the subtle shine I want Lasts longer than most tire products
ConsNone really- anything I get on my hands washes off easily. This is of almost no concern as my technique has improved

Works Great
Works great after tires are clean. Seems to get glossier with 2 coats. Does not sling. Lasts a long time.
ProsEasy to use. No sling. Lasts after rain. Nice natural gloss.

A gel that doens't spray
I was a user of the Michelin tire shine product. Water based and didn't damage tires. Now that I'm out of the Michelin product and it's no longer available, I went searching for an alternative. Optimum looks like that product but I don't' care for it. Why?

It's a thick liquid, almost a gel so it doesn't really spray onto the tire. It streams onto the tire and you then have to work it around the tire surface. Since current tires all have the little ridges (not sure why) you are stuck with a hands-on process vs a spray it on and walk away process.

There are two problems with the hands-on products: 1) They are messy. You got rags and dirty hands to deal with which adds time to the project. 2) No matter how careful you are, wipe-on products make a mess on whitewall and white letter tires. So if you're running Michelin MVS tires from yester year where the sidewalls are virtually smooth, this would be a good product.

I watered it down to about 3-1 so it would spray. That didn't produce much shine. The tires look clean but shine like they've been driven in light rain. I bought the bottle of Optimum, which is kind of expensive compared to other products, including Michelin's, so I'll apply it several times and see what happens since the tires haven't been treated during the time I was searching for an alternate to the Michelin product.

Right now I would sum up my opinion as disappointed. The product doesn't meet my expectations. I can handle less shine and more of a matte finish but the hands-on application requirement kills the deal for me. I have classic vehicles with whitewalls and raised white letters in addition to blackwall tires.
ProsWater based, non-damaging product.
ConsYou HAVE to wipe the product Product doesn't not spray evenly onto the tire. Shine is matte, as advertised. Very little shine. Tire just looks clean. Expensive

performs as advertised
it takes a second application to get the best results on a tire that is new or has not been treated before
