Armor All - any product worth buying?

All,

I know Armor All products aren't anything to write home about, but they are on sale in Canadian Tire. Any of their product worth buying at the sale price?

Thanks,
Andy

Canadian tire is starting to sell a lot of Autoglym products. I tried their polish this past weekend and nothing but thumbsup for the extra bit more on the price!

Armor all rim protectant blows. I used it on my stock rims and they still got dirty after a week.

Nothing Armor All makes is worth anything. Autopia.org and Autogeek.net are great forums that a LOT of professionals frequent. There's a ton of reviews on all kinds of products.

i just gave armor all wipes another try and this time i used the shop paper towel i bought from Cdn Tire for like 2.99 for X of sheets to wipe the wet surface and it turned out pretty good. Give it a shot

If you're going down to the US, and passing by a Target, I believe there's coupons/rebates out there so the wheel protector stuff is free (and a lot of their other stuff is pretty discounted)
