I just remembered another incident involving "blackening" tires:

In the movie "The World's Fastest Indian" (a true story about Bert Monro and his Indian motorcycle Bonneville speed record), he uses black paste shoe polish on the sidewalls of his tires to fill and hide the age cracks.

It is a GREAT movie. Anthony Hopkins plays Bert. If you have never seen it, rent it on DVD.
