Nice satin shine and durable
Great tire shine that will last and gives a very nice satin shine. One issue is that it's runny but spreading it out in the applicator mitigates that.
ProsNice cherry scent, durable, and able to layer to your preference.

Finally the Right Tire Dressing
Tried this on a sale after reading that my previous product, Sonax tire gel, contained silicone which was most likely the cause of tire-browning on two brand new sets of tires. I also had tried the McKees tire coating and wasn't impressed, too much of a liquid making it hard to work and pricey, although it did last quite a while. This product seems to hold up well to rain and as stated, dries non-tacky and won't sling. The finish isn't a shiny as say Sonax, but I don't want that look--this gives a nice shine that's maybe more a super-clean look than anything else. And of course, it smells great! To nitpick, I'd say the 32oz bottle is a bit clumsy to handle so I'll buy in bulk next time and refill a squirt bottle. Also, most likely since it's water based, it isn't very gel like and will run off the tire/applicator if you use too much and don't have a proper technique. However, because it's water based, cleanup is easy and you don't have a greasy messy applicator and hands after you're finished. Overall, great product. I'm giving 5 stars in lieu of the runny nature of the product because there are so many more positives than negative.
Pros-Dries non-tacky -No sling -No brown tires -Smells great -Easy cleanup -Longevity seems good in my applications
Cons-Not quite as gel like as Sonax resulting in producted running off applicator/tires -Need to make multiple passes over the tire to smooth out product and avoid lines when dry -A little expensive but it's a great product

Makes my tires look awesome. Lasts for a long time. Dirt and dust just brush off or if you squirt with water make the dirt jump off.

Nice wet look for your tires
Easy to put on and spread around make sure to have a tire applicator to help with this process

Non slinging and brake dust doesn’t cling. Natural looking gives tires a deep black look. I usually use 1 coat additional coat will increase sheen. Last 2 weeks. By far the best I have used compared to Auto Parts stores. Gave my last bottle to a friend for his Range Rover he calls it “the money”. This will last me well over a year for 2 cars. A lot cheaper in the long run.
ProsLong lasting. Hand wash car weekly with special attention given to rims and wash sidewalls. Apply every other week. Thin bead on sponge applicator is all that is needed.
ConsNone. Just wish found a year ago.

The only tire dressing that looks natural, but if you want that gloss look just add another coat.. works great

A Bit Thinner Than Most Gels
Since it is a bit thinner than other tire gels, it goes on and spreads easier. Wipe it off with a towel and the tire has a black matte finish. finih
ProsThinner. Large quantity

This is my first foray into tire gels and I must say I'm impressed. A lot of the time around town I'd see people driving with extremely shiny tires that just looked bad to me. With this gel, just one coat gives them a nice dark, natural look. Just make sure you really clean and dry the tires well because the first time I applied it they were not very clean and it pretty much all came off the next day. Once I deep cleaned them and reapplied it stayed on for weeks.
ProsNatural, non shiny look with one coat.

DARK SIDE OF THE TIRE
Totally worked as described,best tire treatment that I have ever used A++++
ProsVery user friendly no issues.It even smells good

It takes a little rubbing but it looks great. I have done a test to see how many washed it stays looking good for. Only did front tires. I will report back later. If it works as well as every other Blackfire product, I will be very happy.

nice non-greasy sheen, a little pricy but one of the best tire products that I have used.
Prosnon-greasy does not collect dirt and dust

Not too glossy, holds up well
I like the fact that one coat will give you a nice natural look. If you are into glossy, just add another coat. Hold up well.

Started using Blackfire Total Eclipse Tire Gel after I was able to get all what ever the dealer uses off. Product went on easily and looked great without being real shiny. At 2 wks still looked good. Unfortunately my car went into the dealer for a small fix and was returned to me with more dealer tire shine. Still can't say how long it will last but judging from the 2 wk mark it should easily last for a month.

Great Product !
This tire gel really works, and is so easy to apply. I have had no issues with slinging, and the tires look great for a couple of weeks, even after they went through a wet sloppy snowstorm! I'm pleased with the performance and results, and as someone else mentioned in another review, a little goes a long way. It is a little pricey, but the fact that you use so little to "touch up" the tires after the initial coating makes it a good deal overall.

Best tire dressing I've used
I couldn't believe how well this stuff works. I've used lots of products in the past with mixed results. A little goes a long way! I initially ordered the small sample and I'll probably be able to get 4 different applications (1 coat per wheel) to all four wheels out of it. One coat will give a nice, deep black semi-gloss look to your tires that doesn't sling or run. Thumbs up.

Best tire gel I've ever used! No Sling off at all. Made my older tires look brand new again. Love this product because it has more of a deep black and natural satin look rather than the cheesy greasy fake look. If you want a deeper shine just apply two coats. Tires stay clean for weeks!

wow, I was surprised to find out that this tire gel beads water like a wax. I'm very impressed with this feature. After finding this out, I plan on applying it to exterior trim as well. do your own testing. clean an area, do a 50/50, wipe on and in, wait 5 minutes, then wipe off. then spray with water and watch the beading.

lasts long time
lasts and lasts and the shine when put on over night and wiped off next day is awesome!
