Default Custom Tire Paint...

Wow.. this took forever. Me and this guy from work were talking today and i decided to white wall just the brand name on my tires.. i think its looking banging i only got the 2 fronts done tonight but the other 2 will have to be done tomorrow. Only down point was i got some of the paint on my shifter from trying to position the tires easier to paint. Have a look.

Image tags are your friend



I'm tempted to move this to Detailing and Appearance, but since it'* a pic of "your ride" I'll let it slide. You're lucky you didn't post this in "Performance!" :P

U can get it from advanced auto parts... but it comes in a pen like container... for 8 bucks kinda expensive for 1/3 for an ounce but thats really all you need its a sticky paint and made for tires. Pretty much you'll need about 2 or 3 hrs to finish. Pretty much just take some pliers and rip the tube open and dump the paint onto a paper plate or something then use a brush to gob paint and paint in the letters. than carefully do the outlines. Believe me it smudges and is almost impossible to get off if you are really careless.

There'* no raised black letters opposite the one you already painted? It kinda looks weird but looks very professional btw.
