The new rubber immediately draws attention to the car, but after a short run it takes on a grayish sidewall color. This is due to sunburn, wear and tear and dust. A special ink helps to restore a rich color. The substance is applied to the side of the tires and creates a protective layer. It fills in small cracks, extending tire life and helps repel dust and dirt. We have prepared a review of what we consider to be the best rubber blackeners based on their characteristics and reviews.

Soft99 BLACK BLACK, 110 ML
The first place belongs to the ink from the Japanese company Soft99. The drug is produced in the form of a paste and is equipped with an applicator (sponge with hard and soft sides) for application. Before use, the rubber must be washed with a brush to remove the old burnt layer. Drying and solvent treatment are then carried out. Adhesion to rubber is based on the principle of nanoceramics – quartz, together with resin, dissolves in alcohol and covers the surface. After evaporation of the liquid component, a thin but durable coating remains. The manufacturer promises that the ink will last for 60 days of use, but this is true if you drive a car in Japan. In domestic realities, the tool will last on wheels for up to a month.
We highlighted this ink in the first place in the review due to its economical consumption. The manufacturer claims there will be enough jars to handle 16 wheels. In fact, users note that after covering the rubber on two machines in three layers, more than half of the substance remains in the container. Even in the reviews, car owners praise the blackener for its excellent water resistance – there is no difference before and after washing.
- the kit includes an applicator for application;
- good water-repellent effect;
- there is a non-greasy shine and rich color;
- suitable for plastic parts (fenders, plugs, etc.).
- it is necessary to work with a glove;
- after washing, the wheels must be brushed and degreased;
- application in two layers is required.
Turtle Wax WET N BLACK AERO
The second place goes to Turtle Wax ink, which is popularly called 'Turtle'. The rubber protector is made in the UK and consists of a solvent and silicone. This gives the tires a 'wet' look. After drying, a matte shade remains – there is no shine here. There is no water in the composition, so it dries up in 2 minutes. Reviews users like the ease of use – you need to shake and spray the rubber. The product spreads evenly over the surface, despite the vertical position of the plane. The rubber then looks like new. The ink lasts from several weeks to a month, depending on the operation of the car (the number of car washes, the type of roads, the accuracy of parking next to the curb, etc.).
We consider the product to be the best because it dries quickly – you can use the machine in a few minutes. For example, the previous blacker in the review requires 15-20 minutes of mandatory drying. Therefore, the Turtle is optimal for those who want to quickly return the polish to their tires.
- moderately matte shade;
- pronounced antistatic effect;
- easy application of spray from a bottle;
- prevents premature aging of rubber.
- high price;
- 500 ml capacity is enough to service the car twice.
GRASS BLACK RUBBER PROFESSIONAL
In the TOP-3 we have placed the blackener from the Russian company Grass. It is a relatively inexpensive product that is based on silicone and water. The product is completely safe for humans, although it gets a little on the hands when splashed. Automotive chemicals are produced in a plastic container with a spray gun and a built-in hand pump. It is applied very easily, but buyers in reviews warn that this can only be done on dry rubber, otherwise there will be no effect. It is advisable to subsequently polish it on the surface to increase the gloss. The film forms a deep black color and creates a light water-repellent effect. After driving through a puddle, the wheels will remain clean.
We believe this is the best car wash blackener because it is affordable and the impact does not fade the next day. Having processed rubber, plastic inserts and plugs with them, you can give the car a cool look without significantly increasing the cost of the service. In reviews, buyers share that this is the best way to present a car in a favorable light before a sale or any event.
- convenient spray bottle;
- fast wheel processing;
- protects rubber from cracking;
- increases antistatic properties.
- water-based composition, so it dries longer;
- polishing of tires is required;
- washed off at the first rain;
- in dry weather it will last up to a week.
FILL INN FL064
And here is another blackener from a domestic manufacturer. It is composed of liquid silicone and water. Available in a 520 ml container and applied to rubber as a spray. When spraying, there is no foam, the consistency of the product resembles an oily liquid, which spreads well over the tire. If you do not apply too much ink to one place, then there are no drips. Buyers like the reviews that the manufacturer is working with Pride USA, which inspires confidence in the quality of the ink. Safe for moldings, caps and rims. According to the manufacturer, one can is enough to process 20 tires with the size R14. The price of the product is quite democratic, so it is often bought for private use and pre-sale preparation of the car.
This tire care product provides excellent protection against UV radiation. It is the best for those who often leave their car in the yard in a sunny place. With it, your car tires will remain black in summer.
- well updates the appearance – the effect of new wheels;
- removes small cracks and pores;
- restores black color;
- affordable price.
- if you drive on the highway in pouring rain, the protective coating on the rear wheels will be erased;
- there is no promised shine – the color is more matte.
3TON TC-534 Black Tire
Our review continues with the following domestic-made ink from the 3Ton brand. The product is sold in red bottles with a lizard logo. The silicone base of the preparation adheres to the rubber surface for a long time and reliably closes small cracks. It is recommended to wash the tires and allow them to dry before applying. The drug is sprayed in a circular motion from a distance of 20 cm. Buyers like the product in reviews because of the packaging method. It uses silicone, but despite this, the ink is produced in a can (aerosol), and not in the form of a spray, so it is especially convenient to spray it (you do not need to swing the lever, just press the button).
We consider the blacker to be the best because of the increased gloss. After drying, the film polymerizes and the effect of 'wet' rubber appears. Most other products give only a slight shine, if not even a matte shade. This auto chemistry will create the illusion of just washed tires. It is also the most affordable blackener for the price when compared with other reviewers.
- simple application;
- tires look like new;
- the surface repels water;
- processing each wheel takes 1 minute.
- the increased gloss of rubber may not please everyone – the effect is for an amateur;
- the result is stable for a week, and then begins to weaken.
AiS Ascot NS 7170101 (1 l)
Here is another product manufactured in Russia and developed for blackening rubber. The substance consists of a saturated solution with silicone. The ink is supplied in a plastic container with a capacity of 1 liter. To apply the product, you must use a sponge, so you have to work with gloves, otherwise all hands will be painted too. The product gives tires a matte sheen and slows down aging. Buyers share in reviews that the effect of blackening occurs almost immediately. The drug also smells good, so it does not cause discomfort while working with it. Some people apply it not only to the side, but also to the tread. This is done on a removable rubber that is thus 'canned' until the next season.
According to our experts, the ink is the best in terms of cost efficiency. A capacity of 1 liter can handle up to 40 tires. This is possible thanks to the concentrate, which is diluted with water in a ratio of 1: 2 or 1: 3, depending on the degree of tire wear and the place where the vehicle is used.
- drying time 3-5 minutes;
- natural black color of new rubber;
- environmentally friendly;
- drying out protection;
- suitable for plastic products.
- due to the water base, it dissolves from water during washing or rain faster than other preparations;
- before use, you need to dilute;
- inconvenient to apply with a sponge.
We round out our review with a Goodyear ink. The product comes in a 400 ml bottle and is equipped with a spray bottle. Shake the aerosol before applying. Spray it over the surface in a circular motion. It is recommended to clean the tire straight away with a soft brush or sponge to add a matte finish and remove shiny spots. This treatment reliably protects rubber materials from cracking. In the reviews, drivers note that the dirt really sticks much less. The coating can withstand a maximum of two washes, after which it loses its properties. Some have tested it on the plastic of the dashboard and were satisfied. This is a budget tool that will help maintain a pleasant look of the car on its own.
According to the editors of the magazine, black ink is the best in terms of preventing exposure from road reagents. Often in winter you can see white streaks on the side of the tires, which further spoil the appearance of the rubber. The ink soaks into the top layers of the tires and prevents reagents from penetrating into them. Your wheels will stay clean in winter.
- convenient spray bottle;
- removal of contamination;
- protection against road reagents;
- prevents exposure to sunlight.
- can not be used at temperatures below +10 degrees;
- needs to be rubbed with a brush to ensure an even distribution without greasy spots;
- enough for one treatment of 4 tires.
