I use Wet & Black Matte tire finish. Its awesome i used to use that oily stuff that all the dust and grime sticks too. The matte finish actually dries unlike the oil. The matte finish just gives the tires a deeper black look.

I use No Touch Seriously Wet tire shine. It's a spray, but not a foam. Aerosol also. I love it. Stays shiny for a week or so too. Doesn't turn the tires brown either.

I use Tire Wet works great. I just put a little on the door handles too. Gets rid of the fade...

does it turn your tires brown after it wears off?

and speaking of slinging on paint, me and a few of my buddys showed our trucks for the weekend at the 4 wheel jamboree in lima ohio a couple years back and they used soo much tire shine on there tires that i couldnt see out of my windshield after being behind them on the highway on the way home to michigan...i was pissed lol
