Tyre Paint


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

 

Whats everyone’s opinion on painting the logos/branding on their tyres? Nothing too gaudy, just white to match the car. 
 

Any pictures would be helpful if anyone has done? 
 

TIA

Each to their own, you can get decent paint from ebay though it will need constantly topping up and will "yellow" with dirt, salt etc. 

 

Some tyres are easier than others, painting Michelins is much easier than painting Hankooks. 

 

Can get rubber lettering and glue but tends to be pricey.

On a race car, an actual race car not a track toy, where they're usually sponsored; fine.

On a Trans Am in 1977; passable.

On pretty much anything else; cheap, tacky and usually horribly discoloured after the first 8 seconds.

Well I’m still running the Dunlop’s that Nissan installed when I picked the car up in Feb. 
keeping them white isn’t an issue as I love to sit and do things like that, plus I clean her like every 2 weeks lol.

just still very unsure...

Yea we had a good laugh at this on whatsapp. I should’ve blacked out the Scotland flag as well, we’re not too proud of this one

That zed has gone to a whole new level of Halfords modifying! Why is the fuel cap open? Tacky aftermarket rear lights. GTR Nismo, hilarious!

 

As for tyre paint, every example I have seen the white gets dirty after one drive and looks pretty crap. Maybe get some white walls instead ;)

Ditch the tyre lettering and spend the time/money on painting the calipers (some funky colours and effects around these days) . Only Nissan that can pull off tyre lettering is the GTR imo.

Used to use a grout pen to paint the tyres on my old bikes. It looked good in my opinion, the letters would only be 20mm tall though due to smaller side walls. 

 

On the right car it could look good. Lowered with a big ass wing & aero
