What's a good long lasting tire dressing?

I used to use this stuff called Wipe New - Tires but it's since been discontinued. There was a process. First you soaped and scrub cleaned the tire, then let dry. Then you don a 3M chemical filter cartridge mask, because no joke this stuff was noxious, then you applied just a teeny bit to the provided sponge and applied to the tire. Go around doing all 4 then then come back and do it again.

The black lasted for a good long while...couple months before you had to do it again.

Is there anything like this still out there on the market?

sorry no help here, but, WOW< I haven't even washed my atv in about a y??
this is a tool and a off road tool at that to me, the days of needing it to look pretty went out the window about a month after I bought it I think, back in 1998 LOL

BUT if you wanted to find a LONG lasting tire coating, maybe search a Harley sight, them guys are always washing and waxing there toys!
or some car show sites?

My ties have dirt and mud on them all the time, so, never worth the effort to wash em and try and make em shinny, only shine they get maybe is when there wet with dirty water ,. HAHA. then it drys and things go back to just dirty!

I use baking soda with soapy water and a brush on my tires cleans them up super well. Rinse and let them dry

Then i spray them with armor all and do not wipe–let air dry

On a motorcycle you never want to use tire dressing or youll put the shiney side down lol

I use tire dressing from Chemical guys.Its called Blue Guard,doesn’t last as long as what you said about the stuff you used,but it seems to stay even after a few rains.I brush it on,Also I always used it on my Harley tires,owned the bike for 13 years and it was never put down.

Aerospace 303 is an excellent UV protector, much better than armor all.

Thanks for all the input. I've been hearing good stuff about 303, although tires is not its original intended use. What is this stuff and why does it work so well?

I treated both my polyester tarps, n I'm impressed. sure does shed the mess, JUST as good as a W-shield treated with rain-x ....(and for you dip fellas) ----.Do NOT use this if you have parts plasti dipped , or elasti wrapped.

The scent reminds me of tiki lamp oil.

Your welcome! Oh yeah.... There's a bunch of defrent cloth type seat covers ..... I myself wents with a moose brand cloth (made from 500 denier nylon , i've never been a fan of slipping around on the oem seat material not to mention also having a cat lieve claw marks, or having it accidentally get ripped!

And check out @PatrickB could be an Outlaw brand seat cover.

303 is ok on vinyl, and my 11 year old Rancher seat still looks like new, gets a couple 303 treatments a year.

Thanks! n your using it MOSTLY as UV protectant ??

I reckon the reason might be it makes the material slicker ?? Like armor all does. (I Made that mistake ONLY once) so far I'm very impressed, with 303.

Thank you for bringing 303 to our attention!
