1/ A sparp toothpick and some white acrylic paint.
2. A Gelly Roll white gel pen from Michaels.
With a steady hand you can get good results with either. This was done with the toothpick.

Get a white pastel stick from a craft store and rub it over the raised letters. A shot of clear flat to seal it. Clean deal!
I've got a friend who did a set of the Monogram Goodyear GT Radials (outline letters) with a white charcoal pencil. He said you just lightly scuff the surfaces, rub the pencil across the scuffed surfaces and carefully seal with a clear flat. His were the most realistic version of that tire I've ever seen.

I can't paint it on and I can't toothpick it on. Both attempts look like a child's crayon art class.
