Default Tire Letter Paint

Any one try this on their cars? I think it looks cool to give the car a track look like the Liberty Walk 458.

I used to have white letter tires on my Firebird Formula... in the 80's Kelly Superchargers FTW! Keep 'em clean with some Westley's Bleche-Wite

Looks really weird on street tires. Slicks have flat sidewalls, so the lettering looks more like it might belong there.

Sad to say, but the Ferrari looks butchered. Those fender flares are horrible on a car that nice.

Not doing it to my car. It will yellow over time and look like crap.

The only acceptable way on an IS F..

I like the tire decal approach.

The issue with tire decals is the tire flexes and you can tell even from that picture that the decal looks creased from all the tire flex.. I've seen tire letter paint on regular cars and it looks ok.. i just wish the letters were bigger but acceptable IMO.

I'll tackle it this weekend.

tredwearletters.com has white raise lettering and you can order the stencil in different sizes from http://www.tirestickers.com/tire_decals.html.
