What kind of tire dressing do the Dealers use?

I notice that the dressing the dealers use looks great and never causes the tires to turn brown. Doesn anyone know what they use?

The stuff my old dealer uses comes from the Vesco company in gallon jugs. I don't know if they sell to the public.

I used to lay on the Armour-All but stopped using tire slicker/blackener all together. I think the truck looks much better with the tires just cleaned and in their natural black state.

Zaino. Been using it for years and keeps my tires looking good without turning brown or atracting dust.

I highly recommend the Mequairs "Endurance" tire gel. It's purple, smells good and lasts for a very long time. I use it on my Corvette and it lasts for months (however it doesn't get driven in bad conditions).

Mothers Reflections advanced tire care, makes it look like you've got brand new rubber on your truck, and unlike that armor-all(which has become a dirty word in my house) it doesnt pick up all of the dust and make your tires look like doughnuts, i have a vary long dirt/gravel drive way and my tires look like brand new for about two weeks after i use the mothers.

I did the full zaino treatment on the truck about 3 weeks ago. Since the tire dressing came in the kit I used that too. They are already browning up on me...

Love the way the polish came out, but I won't be using the tire dressing anymore
