Default Tire Protectant Question

What product can I use on my tires that will protect them from UV rays etc. but drys up so all the dirt doesn't stick to the sidewalls the first day?
I'm not too concerned with a glossy shine just a clean black look

I have yet to have any tire on numerous vehicles over the past 30+ years of driving ever have a problem of surviving UV rays. The tread wears down LONG before I would worry about UV rays.

AJBert your BFG's don't show signs of dry rot on the sidewall after 4-5 years?
I've had mine since 2007 with about 40k miles on them.
The tire tread still measures new, but the sidewalls are graying and getting hairline cracking.
Florida is the sunshine state lol.

No cracking what so ever after 4 years, including the spare which has yet to see the road but probably gets more sun than the others. Tread wear, though, is more noticable compared to the spare.

I will say this about the BFG's, though, I may run out of truck before I run out of tread!

LOL Yeah the only thing that lasts longer than BFG tread is Fred Flintstone's wheels.

I have heard of Armor-all drying out tires. Never have used it though so I can't say for sure.
