I've been using flat white and a small brush for years. Whats a better way to do the lettering on tires?

Have yet to find a better way myself, other than to make sure to use acrylic paint rather than enamel.

If you use enamel, they better already be mounted and installed on the car. You will never be able to touch them again.

Bingo!

I have tires that I painted with enamel 30 years ago that still aren't dry! <_<

White Gel Pen works very well for me, wash n dry tire first. Seems fairly durable too

I use a Uni-Ball Signa UM-153 pen.  I'm told Gelly Belly pens work too.
