    That could work quite well once the chrome bits are all on.

    Whitewalls are very hit and miss, they only work on a very limited amount of cars IMO. However, I think your car could work very nicely with them, especially once the rally rims are tarted up a bit.

    Although, the other option could be white lettering on the outside? Lol.

    No need for a flame suit, I hate white lettering with a passion....Ari knows how much I despise it.

    white lettering only ever works on a jacked up C10 4x4, probably gold with a chicken getting tea-bagged on the hood (in my most southern 'merican drawl). Anybody around 40 will know the car i'm talking about :p

    The only place White lettering works is when it's on the inside of the tyre, then it gets dirty and you never have to see it again.

    Apart from being one of the worlds most useless tyres there is nothing wrong with radial T/A's, aslong as the white lettering is mounted to the inside.

    Nice work, that's taking the hate for white lettering to an all new level. I like it.
