Whitewall tire paint

I have read previous posts about whitewall tire paint but I would like to get some further information. I tried the Gledi tire paint with bad results. I am now considering spray paint or a really high quality exterior latex paint. I am thinking that since latex is a type of rubber that it might work. It should also be flexible being a latex type of paint. I don't believe it is a problem with prep because I have tried different techniques with the same results.....PLEASE HELP....Cooker tires are not in the budget.

I think you will not find what you are looking for .. painting whitewalls might get you some sort of look at 50 - 100 feet away, but I would guess the results of painting whitewalls would not come out all that great .. It is just the way the world works sometimes .. The only other option if still around might be a product that was once known as portawalls .. Those will look better at rest but I think will float off of the side wall of the tire at 60 or so ..

I've tried it before, everything from urethane to grease pens, I could find nothing that last, looks good, or sticks.

But get overspray on a tire and you can't get it off...

Maybe that's the key, try and accidentally paint white walls on your tires and it might stick

Hi!!...Im new here and found this site by searching tire paint...Well this might sound crazy but...The paint used to paint lexan bodys on RC cars will work Awesome...I put a test line on the inside rear tire of my Factory Five Cobra 2 years ago...it is still there i used yellow as i had a bottle of it here is a link http://www.parmapse.com/ the paint is called faskolor....its now water based the stuff i used was not...it eats into the lexan and stays flexable and can be thinned and sprayed i will be using it with good year stencils for the "Bill board" race tire look

if you can get it, try road stripe paint, bullet proof and sticks to anything.

Just a thought.
