here's mine after a month of driving thru all kinds of weather. Havent washed or cleaned the wheels at all.
Tried the pens, thought they were terrible.... took forever.
Cleaned the rubber with brake cleaner (sprayed on a rag and wiped the tire, would not recommend spraying directly on the tire) then used RANGER TIRE PAINT
http://www.rangerpaint.com/collections/frontpage

Holds up fantastic, if you want them white again, just rub lightly with a little rubbing alcohol.
Like i said what you see in these pics is over a month old since the last time i wiped with alcohol.
Also attached is a pic shortly after painting

just a paint brush, small tipped, took about an hour to do all 4 wheels, 2 hours for two coats.

Thanks' think I may give your method a try. I still can't figure out how I am rubing the paint off the P ZERO. Nice ride you have there I really like the rims. !

ha ha yeah, not too many of us this forum have these.
I think it is like you stated, the cornering. Those letters are very close to the road.
I keep my tires a little high on the tire pressure side and they seem to hold up well.

The ranger paint i mentioned does exactly like it states, it cracks but it wont peel or flake off.
Id recommend the $15 investment to anyone who wishes to do this.
Comes off with well with any brake cleaner or acetone solvent.

How did you clean the tires before applying? I notice the ranger website says to not use a tire cleaner....

Also, do you know if you can use a tire cleaner after painting? I normally use Wesleys bleach white to clean tires (white letter or not)

btw: love the look. It'd be cooler if the letters themselves were a little bigger.... Pirelli's fault!

Thanks for the idea on this I just ordered a 4 pen set on eBay. I am going to do it in silver I think it will look better the color of your car. I think it will blend in better but that's just me. Thanks again Tramtwo

Good luck with this. With these tires I kept scraping the top of the letters off. Guess I was cornering too hard. I love the look but the upkeep was too much.

I like this, but wouldnt hold up for driving on gravel and dirt roads like do, and especially with constant washing and tire shine.

It is something I would do temporary for a car show, good idea

IMO the P-Zero's lettering just doesn't look that great. The BF Goodrich in the last post looks great.
