covering white letters

For all the white letter people out there, I am sorry, but I run my BFG T/A's blackwall out. Has anyone painted or removed the white letters on the inside of the tire so they don't look dirty when you look under the car?
I thought about painting them black, or grinding them off. Anyone have any other ideas to cover the white letters?

Re: covering white letters

You cant grind them off, the white is another layer of rubber under the black (all you would do is grind the white flush with the side wall)....You might get away with using some sort of grease pencil, becuase paint doesn"t flex and will come off....Im sure someone will have an idea...

Re: covering white letters

just keep driving into the curb over and over again. The white will be gone in no time!

Re: covering white letters

There used to be a product out there I think called tire black, It was made just for that...try pepboys or kragens...

Re: covering white letters

I recall that tire black stuff years ago - before all the aerosol no effort tire black treatmens came out - I will look for it again
