    Because it was the thing to do in the 70's-early 80's, however, this is 2009....

    I reckon a good set of tyres look good with white lettering, so what if it was a "70's thing"?

    white letters look mint. id prefer them over whitewalls. doesnt suit every kind of rim though. i reckon black rims would suit them

    Not a hope in hell Jason....:D

    I'll never own a car with white lettering on the outside. I won't follow your trend....:p

    Edit: This is the ONLY time you will see my car with white lettering on the outside (pic attached). However, if i had a choice, it would be on the inside.

    Yeah, that's what my tyres will look like if i was to use the pen. I'll try the pen first and see how it turns out and then later on i'll get the proper tyres.

    Also i'll admit i'm a bit old school, and what i like now is waaay out of fashion right now, that includes other things not related to cars. Who cares if it was only fashionable in the 80's or 90's :yeah:

    Bring back the white writing on tyres I say. Nothing bad ever came out of the 70s

    They should of stayed on the late 60's Camaros, Only car they half suit. They are the ugliest thing I have ever seen, I would point and laugh if I saw a Modern-ish car with white lettered tyres, But It's your car.... Everyone encouraging him..... Shame!!!

    I would love to do it instead of white walling my tyres. Doing something like that is not for everyone i agree, but some people will appreciate it, as you see.

    ...And my wagon is a 1993 :p

    I think on yours it'd look alright...that pic of HoZy's VQ looks damn good, but on most cars from about the mid '90s onwards...nah. :p
