There is a stencil in the Top Studio super transkit for the mp4/6. I’m not sure if it is available separately. This is the only one I know of, also has the “eagle” lettering too.

Thank you Bruce! They came out great! They look real with a little overspray. I watched a Goodyear guy in the pits and he was spraying “Goodyear “ on the tires. I will send the stencil back. Can you PM me with your address because I cannot make out the return address on the envelope. Thank you again!!!

The stenciled logos look great!

Bruce, I hope you don't mind me saying this, but if I was going the extra mile to stencil the logos, I would have first dulled down the sidewalls. They just look too shiny to me. I've had a success using scouring powder and a toothbrush.  Mix the powder with some water to make a paste, then rub it over the sidewalls with the toothbrush. It takes some time, but the vinyl tires look more thke the 1:1 tires.

Hey Bruce, I had great luck copying this technique below... you already have a nice surface. A dull coat or two and optional weathering will make those tires perfecto ... I’ll bet ...

 

straightliner1, the process for doing the rear tires are as follows. 

1 - apply future to sidewall

2 - apply decals

3 - spray sidewall with coat of Testors dullcoat

4 - use charcol colored pastel chalk to tone down/weather the lettering, that's it!
