do not use the crayon style markers, they will fade to a yellow/brown color over time. unless you plan on cleaning them off every once in a while to put a new coat on.
you would most likely have better luck with the paint based markers.

I used this stuff on my Falkens and on my friend's Dunlops. It works great, and is super durable. Just take your time like everyone else has said. I'll try to scrounge up a picture when I get home. I don't think I have any close ups.

I used Sharpie paint pens. The different size tips helps.

Thank you, captain obvious.

Didn't really feel like trying to find my stock lugs for wheels that were only going to be on the car for a few days.

Has anyone done this to their Ventus R-S3's? It's my next tire choice and I'm curious to see what it looks like.

Can anyone speak to durability if driven on a lot of dirt/gravel roads? I really like the look, but I'd have to wash my tires every time I drove the car if it won't hold up, which creates another issue of it just washing off.

These guys make paint too, but it's brush on stuff. Supposedly lasts longer than paint pens.
