I'm looking for some white tyre paint so I can repaint the writing on my Bridgestone Eagers....Anyone know if it is available in a paint pen? If so who stocks it?
Cheers.

I've had about 3 or 4 sets of Eagers on my car over a period of time and I know that the white lettering on one side of the tyre is actually moulded into the tyre wall. It is not painted on. If it is dirty you can actually clean it up quite well. I used to use "Nifty" with a rag or cloth and rub it back and forth (quite agressivly if necessary). This will not hurt the tyre at all. After that I used to spray the whole tyre wall with CRC's "So Easy". The tyre ended up looking like new and the lettering was nice and white.

in the 80s it used to be like a crayon you buy from robos not paint.
