White letter tires for perf pack?

Has anyone seen any white letter tires that will fit the pp wheels (or just any at all,lol, i know theyre kinda old school, but i think they'd pretty sick). I found some on tire rack, but theyre for like 15 inch wheels. Any help is appreciated.

I get laughed at everytime i tell people I want white letter tires. But actually there are very few companies still making white letter tires especially on performance tires. Good luck finding them and post a pic if you put them on.

Just buy the tires you want and 'paint' the letters you'd like. I've done this with my old motorcycle before. Here are a few examples.

You can buy whatever brand/model tire you like best...and then paint them. There are a few articles floating around...there is an Integra forum with a great write-up. I tried posting the link, but it wouldn't work. Just search in Google and you'll find it.

It's going off in an orthogonal dimension, but you can get decent selection at a very high price in red-line metric sizes here:

White letters (solid) are going to be hard.....in your modern aspect ratios and sizes.

I used the performance white touchup paint on my 08 to paint the letters. Looked great 20 feet out or when I was driving. looked like a first grader did it when close up.

I used to paint the letters on the tires on my 18 wheeler for truck shows, just used a paint pen that I got in the hobby section at walmart. Works great and looks good for a while but then you have to touch them up.

Post pics if you do it.

There is no difference between this and marketing badging on a car. Anyone who laughs at you better not have a 5.0 or tri-bar Pony emblem on their car.
