Do you have suggestions on the brand to use for this silicone spray? I have never heard of using that kind of spray. But then again, I am new at this.

My dad liked a clean car, but he never detailed it. I have quite the opposite view. So I want it to look the best but with the least amount of wear.

Armorall does not make rubber crack- it is water based and just about the most gentle of all the vinyl/rubber protectants.

Silicone and Armorall will not hurt vinyl/rubber/weatherstripping.

Sun and age will dry out rubber.

I've used armorall on weatherstipping/interior/tires for 20 years on all kinds of cars with no cracking. Weatherstipping still like new on my '88 RX-7 convertible that I bought used.

Can you provide me with some brand names? I never heard of the silicone spray before.

Around here the stores usually carry 3M and 3-in-1 brands. Any is fine. Messy if you spray, easier to put on a rag and wipe on.

Silicone is also good on metal so when I change my oil I spray suspension, rubber boots, brake lines underneath.

Armorall may not last as long on tires or be as shiny but it does not leave any build up. Some of those tire clear ones are oily and make a mess.

This is what I use on my tires. It is not a super glossy shine. It is just enough to make them look really sharphttp:///www.adamspolishes.com/c-10-tires-trim.aspx If you are looking for a real shiny look then this product is not for you.

In my experince most of the high shine glossy products are silicone. Generally if it is clear it is silicone based and if it is cloudy it is water based.
