Default Painted tire letters

After seeing several others do it I thought I'd give it a try. Click the image to open in full size. In my opinion I think they look pretty good. Has anyone else on here done it?

The one thing I hate about black wheels is that there's no definition between the wheels and tires.
The white lettering fixes that. I like it! Old school. Especially because they are Mickey Thompsons. If they where Kmart specials, maybe not.

Why didn't you paint them black? The letters don't match your car AT ALL.

I just filled in the letters. I didn't specifically choose them that's just what I got with the wheels but it turned out nicely

You could argue that it matches the silver pony emblems all around the car and the steering wheel... To each their own.
