Yes or No? Do you like the look of white lettering on the tires. I stenciled my Dunlop's on the R1 and I think it looks sweet.

Yes, if the bike has a racing brand tire on it (Michelin, Dunlop), NO if it´s wearing Metzelers or Bridgestone or some such...

But on the whole I think it´s crap. XR3i-boy-racer kind of thing. Don´t do it!

I thought about yellow because my Champ LTD symbol is in yellow. They also have the yellow NASCAR tires you can by for your car now.

white lettering on tyres

I think white lettering on tyres looks crap. You might as well have a strip across the screen saying KEVIN&TRACY and a pair of furry dice hanging from each handlebar end.

You can use a paint pen from any hobby shop(testers) are one of the best brands out there,I know of people that say the tire wore out before the paint came off.

What is better - gloss white or flat white? Also what size pen is best? medium nib or fine??

I saw them today but didn't buy one since I wasn't sure what was best.

It pathetic having to do 'something' with my bike as it sits up on stands!!
