Well the idea was good but the execution was not. Because I have been using tire dressing on my sidewalls to make them look pretty, I can not get the rubber clean enough for the stickers to adhere. The silicone dressing is part of the sidewall now. These will probably work on new tires before they get dressed or get road grime on them.
I scrubbed the side wall with Acetone and brake cleaner and just could not get it clean, after about 15 hard scrubbings its still leaving black on the cloth and feels greasy. I let it dry and tried one sticker and could not get the backing film off without parts of the sticker. To make matters worse these stickers are very thin rubbery film and easily damaged. I thought they would be much thicker.
This was a $70 experiment!
So, If you want to try these wait until you get new shoes and put them on before they touch the road.
