White letter tires

What do you think about white letter tires on the Camaro? I was thinking that when it comes time to replace the tires maybe white letter tires would look cool? Do they even still make them as everything seems to be blackwall these days.

It would be cool to see a pic of a new camaro with white letter tires.

That's a good idea. Raised letters always look cool on muscle cars.

Not so sure you are going to find decent 20" performance tires with raised white lettering but best of luck.

Here are a couple of lame attempts at mocking it up for you.

many thanks for the mock up - I can picture them on a black SS with ground effects - really muscle looking.

Aftermarket black rims with the white lettering would probably look pretty wicked too. I don't know if you would have enough sidewall on 20" and 21" rims for it to look as nice as these renderings, though...

Now, see, that's where I draw the line. You'll have to get someone else to do that for you.
