    It rubs the lotion on its skin. Or else it gets the hose again.

    I recently tried Carpro Perl...leaves the tire satin/matte black, no.shine at all. Water based and stops the tires from browning. Lasts for about 2 weeks unless lots of rain. Loving it so far. Havent put on my Raptor yet but use on my 2020 Explorer ST and love it.

    Last about 2 weeks? That's not very long. I use Blackfire BF-850 which lasts over 6 months.

    6 months? That sounds interesting. Goes on heavy or easy to spread and not overly thick? What’s the finish like when applied and dry? I prefer a dark even look but not overly done oily glossy.

    Sounds like you're either putting too much product on or not giving sufficient time to dry.

    It's put on with a soft bristle brush to get it in and around the lettering and such, with the excess wiped off for a dry matte black finish with a rag. I suppose if the excess was left on to dry, it would give somewhat of a shine. Multiple applications would give it more shine, but that's not for me. It's does not splatter on the truck in the rain.
