This is supposed to be removable, so if I get tired of it I can pressure wash it off, but it took about 30 minutes per tire. Kind of sucks being crunched down by the ground for that much time, but I think the result is pretty good.

Where is the result? Still looks like white lettering to me.

EDIT: Maybe I’m missing something here. Wouldn’t be the first time.

That looks sharp! My dad’s F-250 came with white lettering on the Michelins from the factory. Looks way sharper when clean.

Dad was always a big fan of white letter tires. We got tires put on the 86 Bronco II and the dude put the white letters in. Dad was like "what's the point of buying a white letter tire if you're gonna put them inside." So they remounted them out. Did look really good on the lil Bronco.

I think it really depends on the car/truck with how it looks white out or in.

I am out now, but here’s one from a little bit farther away.

I think this looks great.

Questions;

What did those 35” E tires do to your powerboost fuel eco?

Will this stuff come off if you give the tires a good scrub? Westleys bleach white?

Funny that you asked this question now, as just last night I partially removed the lettering from one tire because it was the only tire that I didn’t scruff the letter surface before putting the paint on, which lead to he paint bubbling very slightly. I thought it would have fallen off easily but it took a good deal of scrubbing with a scotch brite pad. I went through an automatic wash today to test it with the freshly applied lettering (it had like 12 hours to cure) and it did fine. I also put tire shine gel on after the wash and the results were- well you tell me:
