Which Tire Dressing do you all use that doesn't 'sling'?

Curious to hear from you all what tire dressing you all use? I currently got the Chemical Guys VRP and have used it on my new 2019 Alpine White 330i M-Sport.

Problem is, like every other tire dressing I've used, it 'slings' onto the body once you drive off.... Not only is that the problem but if you leave it there long enough, it stains the paint slightly with a small yellowish spot wherever it slings. The yellowish stain cannot come off.

Upset I got a few of them on my rear quarter panel, its unnoticable to most, but obviously you notice every small thing on your own car.

It says this tire dressing doesn't sling but, it does. It's even water based. What do you all use?

I let it dry overnight as well, but still caused sling... maybe because I did 2-3 coats to get that wet black look?

They will all sling if you just apply it and drive off.

I use Zaino's tire dressing which is water based and never had any issues.

I use Turtle Wax tire shine and do not have issue with sling. I use a sponge and do not put more than two coats on. All depends on how much you clean your tire. Too clean and it's like starting over to get tire to absorb the dressing. Also I am a big fan of Turtle Wax products again, they have come a long way since my dad used them in the 70's.

Ok. Do you have a new 3 series? If the car is older I may make sense why it's changing color.

Oh yes I remember seeing your posts. I don't think applying it once or a few times should change the tire color. It could be a defect of the tire possibly. Would need to see how bad it actually is.

Once you wash it, try to scrub the tire wall so you can see if it comes off, worth a try since it doesn't sound normal. Also, is it just 1 tire (which would mean most likely a defect) or all (which would then have something to do with the tire dressing most likely)?

All 4 tires are patchy and dull. Tried rinsing them with water but not scrubbing them thoroughly.

Yea once you get pictures we can get a better idea and provide a better resolution. Bright side of it is atleast you can just use tire dressing to make them black again lol.

Honestly, I use whatever tire shine I have on hand. However, I picked up a pack of eagle
one "tire swipes" and use those to spread the product out. Zero spray and perfect finish each time. Just let it sit for about 10 min or so.

Lexol's Vylnex https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002KKHS8..._OkbYDbX9R5NXA
Not that the tires need it with the lifespan we give them but this stuff actually conditions the rubber deeply vs coating it with silicone and degrading brake efficacy

Sonax Wheel Cleaner https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GBLTKWG..._MxbYDbVNZ0AV0
Before that I use Sonax - that stuff is magic when it comes to the overpowering nature of BMW brake dust (use as directed, stuff is powerful)

WheelWax https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000IMB5CC..._mxbYDbBVQYJ4H
If you are a freak like me you could wax the wheels and that dust will come off with water for the most part (this stuff used to be used on industrial electrical equipment back in the day to avoid corrosion and dirt buildup)

I’ve heard good things about carpro Perl. I’ll try it out once I get my hands on some.

Like someone else mentioned, I didn’t have a good experience with CG tyre shine. It made my tyres look patchy. Infact, one of the guys at the local tyre shop saw it and he said he thought the tyres were old and expanding and that I needed to replace it. He didn’t know it was the tyre shine which caused those marks on the tyres. And I had used CG only once. Never used it after that.
