Never!!!!!!!!

Unless my tires are white walls there will be no white (paint) on my wheels.

That trend was all over sema, played out imo.

I was tempted, but saw some up close (affixed variant) and decided against it.

I am not a fan of raised white letters on my SS, but I like the raised white letters on my 98 GMC daily-driver truck. Must be the redneck in me that likes that look on an "old" truck.

They look out of place on new cars ,we had them here in australia in the 70/80 with yokohama 352 and radial TA they looked good back then on the old muscle cars but look a bit gimmicky boy racer on the new cars

I had some BFG ATs put on my old frontier with the white letters out. I liked it for that application. I would not do it on my car but I have seen an Evo around town that I think it looks good on. I was also in high school when the fast and the furious came out, so maybe I have boy racer tendencies.

Local guy has had it a few times on his SS.

Not my thing, but each their own. If you google some examples show up.

Painted tire lettering typically looks bad and fades fast.

Heat press on tire lettering looks much better and should last a couple months at least. I think it only looks good on a well modified car. It looks pretty dumb on a stock height daily.
