I just got some tire shine in a mystery box. Does anyone have experience with this that has to drive on gravel? I know other tire shining products cause dust to stick to the tires really bad. Does Adam's tire shine cause this problem?

I really like the tire shine. I washed my truck this past Sunday and applied the tire shine. The road in front of our shop is gravel and since it's been dry it's really dusty. I drive this road 2 to 4 times a day. Here's a picture of my tires today. No touch up has been done since the application on Sunday.

Nice. I only drive gravel when I go to my parents. They have a half mile gravel drive that's always pretty dusty. Trying to decide if I want to keep it or try trading it for something.

VRT works nice on tires but I prefer the shinny look to.

Yeah. I usually go with VRT. I'll give the tire shine a try and see what I think.

I like the tire shine better because you can knock down the shine with a utility towel if you don't like blindingly shiny. Also, it lasts longer than VRT, and isn't water soluble. VRT always ran badly in the Florida rain.

VRT runs? I thought it was suppose to hold up and resist water? I'm being serious, but i did experience it gone, after i drove 60miles thru near monsoon like conditions.

My experience has been the Tire Shine is less likely to attract dust the VRT would. Took about one use to convince me Tire Shine for tires. Tire & Rubber cleaner really helps prep them for best results.

I have a gravel driveway (  :loser:  ) and have no problems with dust collecting on the tires.
