Metal polish/tire shine....

What do you guys recommend for metal polish?? Time to polish up the lip on my wheels....I have tried Mothers billet, Wenol Blue, Eagle polish, Blue Magic, Autosol polish.

I dont mind sticking with some of the above, besides the eagle polish...but wondering if there is something else that might be better??


Also looking for a tire shine that does not come off. I am almost done my Eagle 1 tire shine and it tends to spray all over my fenders on the first drive.

I like Blackfire tire gel, it leaves more of a matte finish than a super duper shiny look.
If you're getting sling it could be that you're using way too much
