Anyone have shots of Camaro's with the letters showing on the tires?

I've always liked the look of the white letters on the tires and wondered what the 5th Gen looked like with them showing. I'm nearing time to get new tires for my Camaro and I'm torn between upgrading to 20's or sticking with the 18's and going for letters out.

you could still show the letters on the thin tires. 20's look damn good on our cars.

I have seen people on this site use white tire markers. It is like a sharpie but its made to fill in the letters of the tires white. actually looks really good.

I like the look, but it's weird with the stock Pirelli 20s because the brand and tire names are not 180 degrees from each other, so you have to fill in the size as well.



I much prefer this.

That is one thing that just makes me start twitching, when things aren't symmetrical. :P

Seeing some of the thinner tires with the letters just doesn't look too well for me though. Plus I was leaning towards keeping the stock rims since I kinda like them and they match my car. :P

Thanks for the links/pics to everyone who posted them.

You can take tire chaulk and make your letters white to see what you think. It wipes right off. Most part stores have it or swing by a discount tire and use theres on just a few letters and see what you think
