How does the tire gel hold up? I cant find a gel that doesn't fling off all over the side of my truck. I stick w/ spray foam because it stays on the tire, but gel looks better :shrug:

check autozone for a new tire shine called INSANE tire shine by meguires. I think its colored like the nxt bottle. I used it on my dads truck, it didnt fling and lasted 2 weeks. Its seriously the best shit ever, and its not a foam.

Alex, I was getting the same thing recently when using the Optimum line...I had clean pads and thought I was doing everything I normally would do...In reality I wasn't letting the product break down far enough. Optimum has a much longer break down point then something like the SSR lineup if you're used to that.

I think it holds up very well and I get no slinging. This is tied w/ bold n bright as my favorite tire dressing.
