In -Tire is a water based dressing for all your rough plastic and rubber . It will not sling off your tires like oil based gels. In-Tire will leave a shine to your tires at first application then after next wash leaves a satin finish. We feel the look of a dark tire natural satin finish will bring out the look of your rim. You do not want your tires to be the main focus of the wheel, but just a dark back round to show off your rim.
