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:

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

PS messaged you on FB

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.

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.

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?
