sort of....

white walls were before my time - but the white lettering is sort of a race feel.

I will admit I bought a "tire pen" on an impulse one time... but never used it.

I confess, I was part of the "T/A's white letters out" crowd.

One of our members here has them on his fastback. Looks cool imo. I won't do it on my 66 cuz it'll clash but on my Foxbody, I probably will.

Have them. Love them. I'll post pics as soon as I get them. It's the look these days and like anything it the auto world, to each their own. They're not too hard to install but if I were to do it again I'd seriously consider just buying the tires from them with the letters installed.

'66 Coupe - Pro-touring in the making

289 or 302? 4bbl
T-5Z
9" TrueTrac 3.55 gears
TCP suspension front and rear
18x8 Wheels and Baer 6P all four corners

And no more money left in my wallet...

I want a set of E70 15 raised white letter Speedways for my 68 Shelby,


It's just hard justifying $1400+ for a set of 4 tires that are for show purposes only.

mondo huge tire lettering

My mondo huge white walls:







For those that don't like them, wait three track days.

Maybe I'll see your car parked at Dairy Queen when I'm on my way to the track. And yes I already know my garage looks like a disaster right now.

It looks like a giant Matchbox car with the big letters......... Cooool! I dig it!

Working on old cars teaches us patience... and every curse word imaginable!
