Tire Stickers

Great way to personalize your SSR!
I sent Tirestickers.com the SSR logo, asked for the SS in Yellow and the R in Red, 8 stickers, attached is the Proof.
These are stick on letters that last 5000mi. They do have permanent but only in White. They also will do permanent hot vulcanized custom lettering if you get new tires and ship them to them but, that could get pricey.
They have several fonts to pick from for custom lettering, premade tire mfg logos for all size tires such as Goodyear, Nitto, Continental Etc. If you want old school white letter tires get the permanent or stick on mfg. logs for your tires in white. Put red line stripes right on your tires!
They also will accept custom logos as I did with the SSR, great for adding your business Fanatics handle to your tires! This set for me cost $70 incl. tax and shipping. I'll update when I get them and post installed pics.

Originally Smokin Asphalt 03 #00099 now kustom graphics, tu-tone Kandy Lime Green/Pearl White
I looked into these a few days ago.

With all the new tires coming with just black wall and my old school muscle cars look better with solid white letter tires, i wanted to see what it would take to get a set of Mickey Thompson Indy Profile ones. Come to about $130 for the set.

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.

Sorry to hear it didn't work...I will see my friend that owns the 67 Red Nova that I posted and ask him... the procedure he used when he applied the letters...I don't know what he is using on his tires for car shows...I have to leave town for 7/8 days..I will contact him when I return.....I know its little to late to help....but may help some one in the future....good or bad..I will try to post something..from his experience

@Texasbaehr , I talked to Charlie, yestedray at the car show.....and explained the problem you had with the letters not sticking to the the tires...he also used Acetone and the glue provided with the tire stickers.....light sanding with sand paper to scuff the area up before gluing the letters on......and he uses's white shoe polish to keep the letter a " Bright White ".

If he used Glue then he had the permanent stickers which only come in white. I suspect they work better than the self adhesive temporary ones I bought.
