Default What do I put on my black wheels to make them shine?

Can I just use car polish?

I like McGuiar's TireMagic. Comes in a kit that includes the applicator made to fit low-profile Vette tires and it smells just like grape jelly or a grape sucker or something. Pretty :cool: stuff!

Car polish? :eek:

I like Meguiar's, the purple stuff. Have also used Turtlewax Tire Dressing. It is thick like maynonaise and works very well.

I also use it under my hood on the rubber hoses, etc. Darkens the hoses and adds a little shine. Looks nice.

Ed and onedef92, He's asking about shining up his black wheels, not the tires.
I use Meguiars gold on my car and wheels. They shine great!

Are you talking about the tires or the wheels? Tires use Armoral spray - wheels get chrome. :crazy:

Zaino works great, and holds up on black GS wheels MUCH longer then wax.

The wheels get dark black, and shiny. Nice!

Same wax as the rest of the car. I have found that they need waxing more often than the car does though.
