Default Tires with white lettering

Anyone have this look on their ISx50? I was looking into it. No one seems to do it anymore, but if there is anyone who has it, where can I get custom tires like that?

I have it on my motorcycle. There are no car tires tires that come with white lettering (to my knowledge) and very few motorcycle tire companies offer it. You have to buy that white paint pens to achieve this or other people use spray paint..

Wow that first car! (I wonder if hes truly handicapped parking there) Are those white walled tires? You have to have the right look on your car to pull that off. There's this product. http://tredwearletters.com/

The 60's called and they want their tires back.

Seriously...I hated them in the 60s.

Raised white letters were popular in the 80's.I don't believe they are custom, perhaps just special order as in most places don't keep them in stock. I have them on my truck but would like to see what they look like on the IS. Please post if you do this.

I only see them nowadays on truck tires. Had them for my Honda Pilot, but had the tires installed with the lettering facing in, and kept the blackwall look. They were stock item at NTB.

I will admit, its not really that great, after a few thousand miles, they wear away and just turn black. Just another thing to upkeep! My

I wasn't talking about white walls lol, but I found out what I need to do. There are oil-based paint pens on amazon that you use to do this by hand. The paint is water, abrasion, etc resistant. Reviews say after first coat it was alright, and they went ahead and did another for a truer white. I'm gonna go ahead and do it. not that I have cool tires or anything, just something else to make my car pop.

It will look good but it will fade, and then you have to constantly do upkeep on it. I've tried it on other tires. If you see your self doing that then go right ahead
