    I used the "permanent" option on a set once. Turned out pretty well, although I don't have pics.

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    I like em too, but prefer the painting-in of existing text than the tire letters. Sure they wear/fade over time, but there's just something kinda tacky about the oversized stick on lettering.

    Agreed about tacky... that's basically why I can't rave about my experience with the tirestickers product.

    Ya, I like the WRC look of multi color logos on the tires. I debated going in and coloring my PS4Ss with yelow, blue and white paint pens lol

    I love to be controversial! Ditto on the Tirestickers. I did mine on the bench and took 4 hrs. to do it right. Didn't want any screw ups with prep. or alignment. I think it was $25/tire(?)

    I used tirestickers.com and used the perm raised rubber lettering. 1inch option for the stock 19 tires. I included a pic for you to get a good look!
