White letters!

What can I use to make white letters on my tyers?
Im shure some of you will say white letters are for posters and stuff.
Here is a pic of what it would look like.
And I keep seeing more and more chevys with 38's and 39's.

Re: White letters!

Uh, don't know what's gonna make white letters and stay on for more than a week. Yeah, theres a truck down the street with 38.50's but that don't make it right now does it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]. Wouldn't gettin lettering get expensive with all those tires on that 4x4x4x4x4x4 or whatever?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: White letters!

Use white out. That is cheap and should work great for your application. Can probably even get some from school[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Most bottles even have a nice little brush thingy in them to apply it with! Oh and i swear it will never come off. Honest.

Re: White letters!

You could try peeing on you tyers! I heard that always works.

I would never say that white letters are just for poster and stuff.

Re: White letters!

Swampers aren't supposed to have white letters. They degrade the sidewall strength and I also heard that the Interco Tire Police will impose a steep fine if you ever get caught. Besides, white letters are only for "posters" and "posters" don't need to have such stringent saftey standards as tires do because afterall, they only hang on the wall.

Re: White letters!

Yeah, the white rubber compound is more susceptable to puncture than the black compound do to the fact that the rubber has to be lighter to make the lighter color. So, if you rub agains a rock your white rubber will pop out and you will end up with perfect "super swamper" cutouts in your tires! But then again, you could just put bondo in there and thats hard as a rock! GO FOR IT!
