Default Best tire shine?

What do you guys recommend for a good tire shine? When I had my new wheels put on, the shop put 'Auto-Magic' tire shine and and it was great! Didn't fling black stuff down the side of my truck and actually left a good shine on there for a good week and a half to two weeks! I haven't been able to find that in a store anywhere. So what do u guys use? I just used Turtle wax tire shine and though it shines well, it flung crap down my freshly washed and waxed truck today even after sitting in the florida sun for a good hour before I drove it! So that's now garbage in my mind lol

I have been very happy with Surf City 104 Beyond Black tire spray. Quick drying time, and no sling. It lasts over a month on my tires.

I just bought some tuf shine tire clear coat from autogeek and it should be in next week at some point and I will be doing a write up on it. Everything I have seen it is supposed to a long lasting shine and protection

I have had good results from Griot's garage tire dressing. The matte finish version is the one I prefer. Seems to last about 3-5 weeks and does not fly off. Having said that, if you like the results with Auto-Magic, why not stick with it, they have a good rep? Just a thought.

I worked at a detailer for a while, just remember when you put it on, scrub it into the tire then wipe it off, other wise it collects dirt way faster
