thanks dude, this is perfect, exactly what I wanted to do.

my questions are:
- what product did you use, if any
- and if you did use a product, how does the paint hold up through normal wear/tear/washing

Well, I went with probably the cheapest route possible because I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. I simply went and bought some white paint markers from an art store, cleaned off the tires with ammonia to get the silicone tire shine off, then colored in the letters.

It has been a while now, and surprisingly this cheap paint marker has held up pretty well. It is not as bright white anymore, but has not flaked off like I thought it would. I am actually impressed.
