Ed they really do look great.
Now, I suggest you get them working on the Bridgestone stencils because it won't be long before that is your tire of choice.

Thanks Kevin.
He needs pictures of the actual tires to make the templates. I'm still holding out a bit longer hoping Michelin will make a taller rear (although they said they had no plans, it wouldn't be the first time a manufacturer says one thing only to turn around and do something else).
Since everyone knows what they look like now, maybe someone with the Bridgestones will step up and get a template going for those tires??

Pro. Thanks for stepping up. Since he's not a vendor, I'll send you the info via FB.

Has anyone done raised white letters on their GT tires , I saw a picture posted here in the owners section where a white / blue GT was parked outside of a building with a red head model looking down at it

I thought the raised white letters on the tires looked really good or was this photo shopped

Pictures would be nice if anyone has them

Thanks

There was a time some 2 years age when painting the Goodyear letters was the subject of conversation on this blog. Some paint to outline the tires, maybe that person will join in with details. That's the best of my recollection .

I am a redneck. I like raised letters, even though I don't like cleaning them.

I like them too, as long as they aren't yellowed.

This is probably the pic you're talking about. I stole the pic because I think it's fantastic and I want to try something similar with my long-legs sister-in-law. :lol

I have no connection with this place, and no experience with their product, but unless you don't value your time, $25/tire seems far superior to many hours with an exacto knife, tape and paint. http://ironcrossinnovations.com/
