Hi All,

Here's a project I was working on for myself and thought I'd make them available to everyone.

 

White Letter Tire decals.  Initial batch of designs is 25 different brands/styles:

FireballModelworksWhiteLetterChart_zps82

 

 

Sample 1/24 decals applied to Monogram tires:

I'm making them available as individual sets with enough decals to do 5 tires.  PM or email for pricing info.  If you don't see the particular lettering you want, drop me a line and I can probably make it.  Thanks for looking!

You know what would cool Joseph, is if there were a raised lettering decal, which could be applied and painted over on tires, so to make correct sidewall markings, on otherwise bald sidewall tires

 

That's beyond a typical waterslide decal of course, but might be possible in some other way

I'd rarely do something with white letters, but those are way cool, Joseph!

I was thinking the same thing. I do recall there is someone making resin decals of weld beads, perhaps a similar process could be used the RBL for tires?

I've added an additional 25 designs to the original 25 for a total of 50 tire lettering designs!  Many factory stock and popular aftermarket tires from the 70's and 80's.  Ordering information is up on my website at http://www.fireballmodels.info/wl.htm

 

Full-size Charts showing the different designs are here:

These are regular decals and they stick to kit tires?  How about aftermarket tires - like yours?

They go on kit tires just fine.  The tires I make in resin and rubber already have correct sidewall lettering on them, but the lettering on the hard white resin tires is easily sanded off if you like.
