I have used Endurance now for 2 years i love the stuff. It does not wash off and the more times you use it the better the tires look. And your tires dont turn brown at all the stuff you spray on with pertorulem in it will bake the tires in the sun and Endurance does not sling off. |wavey|

I've used Endurance and I wish I could say the same great things about it.

My tires turned brownish, and I've had it sling off onto my body before... but maybe I was just being a little over zealous with the usage.

I did however buy some Armor-All Tire Shine, and although it doesn't last as long as the Endurance did, it works nicer since it doesn't make your car look all crappy when it's wearing off...

I must say though, Endurance lives up to its name, that stuff lasts forever!

I use "Looks Wet No Mess" which comes in an aerosol can. Works great, gives them a satin look and doesn't fly off. You just have to buy it via snail mail |sad|

I assume you're talking about Mequires Endurance? I've just started using that. On the first application I was concerned, to say the least, that it didn't seem to dry... stayed wet to the touch for about an hour? But, I have now used the car for about two weeks, covering about 700 miles and the tyres look good. The shine has now gone and they have a nice natural sheen, but no shine! And, they wipe off with a damp cloth and come up like new again. Previously I have been using an Eagle One cleaner, that I can't seem to find anymore on my trips to the US. The Eagle One Wet look is OK, but a bit shiney for my taste, and it has to be said, doesn't seem to last as long as the Mequires.

But, I did try the Mequires trim detailer, on our "other car" (a Vauxhall Astra, if that means anything to the US based amongst you?)..... Useless, washed straight off in the first rain shower
