    Hi everyone.

    Have been wondering about this for some time. I'd love to know if any companies sell tyres with white writing on them. I want to put them on the wagon. It has the standard 15x6 stock wheels on it.

    Don't know what it is about them, but when i was a kid i saw an old Lada sedan with some wide wheels on it and those white writing on the tyres and i thought that was the best thing in the world.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: This was the model Lada if anyone was wondering (but it does not have the cool tyres on it :():

    For a cheapo version just buy a good quality paint pen and go over the writing yourself

    Yep as above. Paint pen is the easiest way, Whiteout works too but wears off quick

    I thought i could but my tyres for example have a 2 sided section (if that makes sense) so on the inside of the tyre (closer to the rim) it has nothing and on the other side (closer to the thread) it has some very small writing on it, so it does not look exactly right.

    But yeah in the worst case i'll try getting a pen and going over it. So this paint pen, who normally sells them?

    Yokohama make a line for muscle cars with the white writing on them, but I agree the time is right for front rake and big fat 15 inch tyres with white letters to make a come back :)

    np, they are expensive though, and some need to be specially ordered if you want white writing.

    i think the 225/60/15s are about $220 each fitted and balanced.

    give the white pen a try. A good pen to use is a Uni Posca in white. We use them all the time at work. I believe we buy them from blackwoods or corporate express. just give the letters a rub with sandpaper first.
