Answer to whitewalls, THE SOLUTION

I painted my wide whitewalls with white spray paint from Napa. I put on 3 coats of primer, let dry good and then spayed on 4 coats of flat white. After this was dry i spayed on a satin clear coat. This paint has been on for 2 years now and still looks new. Just dont hit the curbs.

Paint your whitewalls if you like, but PLEASE dont grind the sidewalls. If you do please dont drive anywhere around me or my family. White sidewall rubber is inherently weaker than black rubber. It doesnt need anymore help from a grinder. Dont believe me about the white rubber? Take a good look at any racing tire. The white letters are painted on. Next time you get to see a white letter street-tire that has experienced a blowout notice how much worse the white side looks in comparison to the black side. Tires were made of white rubber in the early part of the century until Mr Goodyear learned how to use carbon black in the rubber compound.
I have only heard good things about the stuff from Iceland.

I'm sure a street tire with the side ground a bit is still way stronger than say a DOT bias ply street slick, which are legal for street use and plenty of people run. Personally I don't like whitewalls.
