Revell wide wall decals - any advice

I would clear the sides with acrylic paint, or future, apply the decals, then clear over the decals.

I totally agree with this. Acrylic gloss clear so the decals don't silver around the edge then I hit them with Mr Super Clear matte spray to kill the glossyness. I left these glossy because I was going for the fresh armor all look but did do the clear undercoat.

I just painted 1/32 1958 T bird white walls that had no really good demarcation on the sidewall,not for these old eyes anyway. I mounted the assembled wheels on a rudimentary mandrill and spun the tires slowly in a cordless drill. Then just touched the paint brush to the side wall.  I'm used to wood turning, it's much easier to control circular designs onto a spinning object if they're just straight up dimensions like white walls. Coarse the tire can't wobble, at least not much.
