I know it's just the lettering, but when I see this done on any vehicle I just think of

I say leave it black, but as was said, your ride, your style

True it's hard I left wheel on when I put on 2nd coat I will take tires off and clean edges up with paint thinner. Staying in lines is tuff when wheel is on.

If done super clean then I think it can look good. I used to be a all black tire guy, but my mind has recently been more open to a little lettering on the side. Have yellow on my SXS tires (totally different as no one but deer see them) and have seen some white look okay on a few trucks. Also the Toyo's Ken Block uses I think look pretty good.

Back in the olden days, all the cool kids had raised white lettering on their tires. I like the look thinking, of doing it myself on my next set.

Clean the edges and take more pictures then I'll input. THIS shot looks like @CVPI said. With clean edges though I like the look on other cars, but I need to see it on your car and from a distance and other angles. Certain cars (like a bone stock ST) it looks stupid on I feel, but with a slightly modded appearance I could see it looking nice on the ST.

part of it doesn't look good because the letters are so small

the entire thing doesn't look good because tire lettering is dumb and ugly, this isn't nascar

Honestly it looks horrible because its a poor quality paint pen and looks like you cant colour within the lines (no offence just honest). Tire white wall looks great but get tredwear or tirestickers. This is mine with a tredwear kit that cost about $150 Canadian

I hear ya my man that's why I asked for thoughts. But on a side note I am a really good artist it's just paint pens are really hard to work with. Do the letters come in other colors and fonts? What's the life of them during car washes ect?

Old school cool man! That, and a set of Cragar S/S's on my ST and I'd be in heaven.
