Tire Paint Chalk

So have a question for you guys. Anybody have experience with "painting" or using chalk to fill in lettering on tires? I was just wondering what the best method may be. I've done this myself with a HotPen which is just something like an arts craft white pen that you can use to fill the tires in, but what do you guys think about the last 2 pics???

One looks like it's possibly chalk, the other looks like maybe stickers or something?? I just want to know if anyone has any sort of knowledge besides the Pen method on what gives the best long lasting effect. I've used the pen on my Lude and it lasts for a while, but fades away.

I don't even use much tire cleaner either while the lettering was white. But anyway, just want to know if chalk or if spray painting my tire to form the letters would last??
Basically want the best result and where to find it if possible. Thanks guys.

Very Nice! Very Nice!
GOOD GAWD! LOOK AT THE LIP ON THOSE WHEELS! O.O

Those tires I'm sure have the paint on them the way they are. My Yoko's on my truck have white lettering that doesn't fade off. I usually scrubb the letters to keep them nice and bright and spray them down after words with black magic. My dad's old vette we used to use the white marker/chalk probably what you are using that last for a while but after a while will fade out. The only way to keep them bright if they aren't already painted is to keep touching up. Im sure making a stencil and spray painting them would be fine and might last longer than the chalk/pen but be careful of over spray. What a pain it would be to take off each wheel tape it and spray paint it. Keep on chalkin' is my advice.

Yeah I can see over spray being an issue, or just the cutting. Would be pretty cool to get letters to stick and look good

Re: Tire Paint Chalk

Tredwear makes rubber letter glue on kits.

Supposedly they stick well if applied correctly.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
