Tire dry transfers


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I’ve been lurking around the forum for years but rarely post. I am going to start building after a couple years of being lazy and thought I would complete a couple old nascar kits I have stored away. When I was building before, I would use dry transfers on the smooth side of the tire. They came in yellow and white as well as Hosier and Goodyear. I can’t find them now and wondered if anyone knew where I could find them. They always came out perfect for me (at least much better than I could paint).  Thanks.

You are probably remembering Shabo dry transfers, they came in various styles and colors, as well as the Hoosiers you mentioned.  I loved them, but apparently they are no longer available anywhere, I've looked.  As DW says above, decals will work with a coat of flat clear.  Just be sure your wheels will fit smoothly into the tires or you may crack the flat clear trying to mount them.  Hope this helps!
