If I may make a suggestion.

 

You don't have the Goodyear polyglas with the small solid white letter in a either the E70-14 or E60-15

 

to very popular tires sizes for the OE crowd

I'm thrilled to have so many different tire mfrs to choose from, and I like how Mr Osborn included some of the lesser known brands among the big names.  Not everybody ran Goodyears... but if you did, his selection of their performance tires extends from those offered from the mid '60s through the mid '80s, so replicating a 1:1 car you built during those years will be easier.  Best of all, these decals are available in either 1/24 or 1/25 scale.

 

Also, those of you looking for a smaller MickeyThompson front tire to go with the AMT '70 Camaro's rear steamrollers can now create your own rather inexpensively.

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

 

PS  messaged you on FB

Creating photo etch and painting them white then gluing them on a tire would be cool but quite fiddly!

IMHO . RWL decals depth would be out of scale as are the MPC/AMT tires we tolorated for decades now . Thanx ..

I'm not sure that makes a whole lot of sense.  1:1 RWLs don't project out much past the sidewall of a tire, so how would a decal be out of scale on a 1/25 tire? 

 

Got a better solution?

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:

I installed some Cady tire decals on a set of vinyl tires on my '70 El Camino, and they have always been kinda sticky.

Put a clear water-based acrylic coat over them as a sealer.  Future works great.  There have been a wide variety of vinyl and rubbery-like plastics used for kit tires over the years, but they should all accept a water-based clear.  Never use a hobby enamel paint directly on vinyl or other flexible plastic-- it'll never dry.

I second what Eric says . . . Excellent service from Joseph !

I received 2 sets of decals a couple of weeks ago and just tried them today . . . WOW !   I followed the directions and they are super easy to apply ,  better than any kit decals I've used ,  and they look better in person !

 

Thank you Joseph ,  I will definitely be ordering more ! :D

Hey fellas,

 

I've been Google searching and eBay searching all morning but I can't seem to find a decent set of dry transfer Goodyear Tire decals. Anyone have any suggestions??

Those are beautiful, Joseph. If I can figure out something to use them on, I can guarantee I'll be ordering a set.
