Default What tire dressings do you all use?

What is the bad ingredient in most 'auto part' store that causes deterioration of your tires (I can't remember)?

Any body use these products or have some recommendations?

Default I really like Tire Wax from Turtle Wax....

goes on easily and doesn't sling off onto your paint at all if you put it on correctly (i.e. don't glop tons of it on). Resists dirt rather well and lasts longer than other brands I've tried.

Default thanks ;)

Hmmm...good question about the silicone; the bottle actually doesn't say:

I've been using it for two years now and have never noticed any yellowing or deterioration on my tires. I put it on maybe every two weeks or so, and it lasts quite well, even after driving in wet conditions.

Default Don't know about the 3M, but the other two are highly recommended on the detailing forum.

as well as 303 protectant (see detailing forum) and griots (which I use myself)--very low shine...just makes the rubber a deep satin black.
