Most wide whites manufactured today bring a premium price. Coker tire in Knoxville, TN has them .

I doubt this will help but...

Raised white letter tires have a wide band of white rubber molded into the sidewall. There are specialty companies that have a portable grinder setup that grind away the rubber to expose a true whitewall, with tires mounted on the car.

If grinding sounds crazy; whitewalls were made that way for years.

The web article I saw somewhere was a company that did them at your house, but that was in California.

i have seen them painted. the guy said he mixed the paint with lots of flex agent. up close, i could see all the lettering on the tires. but back up a little and they looked fine, actually pretty good. he couldn't say how long it would last, as he had just done them 2 weeks before.

I know all about that and I agree with you but unfortunately he does seem to have the market cornered for wide whitewalls, redlines, and other classic tires. So you have to make up your mind.....either want them or you don't.
