Shining Monkey SUCKS!!! DONT BUY

This is the worst crap I have ever bought for my car.

I read the directions and shook the can vigerously and then applied to my DRY tires. It took almost half the can to get an even coat (When the product was Wet) on the tires. While going on it looked like crap, and when it dried it looked even worse leaving areas looking like they had not been treated.

I thought wow this junk sucks.


later I thought I Would give it another shot, I re-applied to all of the tires and low and behold this junk Really Sucks a big fat Donkey D1Ck !!!!!


Save your money and go with black magic or other reputible product.

oh and I wouldnt even rank this product up there with anything that you can buy off of the shelf at pep boys or autozone.

This stuff is hype and nothing more.

I think the stuff works really well, I had no issues with uneven coverage. It does not look quite as shiny as some other brands, but I prefer the matte look.

Maybe a bad can ?

I dont know if it was a bad can or not.

As for the shiny, i would understand if I didnt have to use to whole can just to get it to look half as decent as an armoral wipe.

i would have to spend a **** load of money just to get this stuff to turn out like crap.

You spray it directly on the tires?! Your gonna get that shat kicking up on the whole side of your car! I usually spray into a sponge and work it into the tire, nice n smooth coat, w/ no overspray no matter what product.

That's the whole point of the shining monkey tire stuff. It won't fling that crap all over the place.

Exactly Why wouldnt I just use a sponge with any product? That was the whole reason behind no spitting tire shine, and all of that other ****.

If thats the case why not just stick with black magic and rub it on the tire manually?

Thanks for the heads up. I'm using Eagle One tire shine right now, works pretty good, looks like I'll be sticking with it.

True, but otherwise you'll use half the bottle like you just said.

Either Way its a poor product when used as their marketting campaign suggests. And if that is the best way to get good results, its not any better than what everyone has been using traditionally. Actually its worse since the product hasnt really brought anything new to the table that wasnt already there.

The monkey is cute but that chik with the big **** is cuter, probably the only reason I bought it in the first place.

I also use Eagle one sprayed onto a damp sponge. Looks perfect and no overspray.
