Does a Tire Paint Pen or Marker Work?

Does a Tire Paint Pen Work For Tire Lettering?

People ask if a tire paint pen or tire paint marker works for tire lettering.  The answer is yes and no – While a tire paint pen or marker can be used to add white letters to your tires, tire paint is certainly not without drawbacks. 

The Drawbacks are Many and Significant

White tire letter paint pens are messy to use.  Cleaning up paint from your hands and clothes is aggravating.  In addition, it is difficult to stay in the lines, leaving you with white letter tires that do not hold up under close scrutiny.  A tire paint pen also is very time consuming to use. (One tire easily takes over an hour) To make matters even worse, white tire paint often chips or fades from your tires, after a few weeks, leaving you with worse looking tires than before.  White tire paint pens leave you with letters that fade to brown or black.  Imagine investing all of that time and dealing with the mess of a tire paint pen only to have it fade, or turn in a few weeks.

A Tire Paint Pen Used to be the ONLY Option

A white paint pen was historically, one of the most popular ways to add aftermarket tire letters to your tires.  Even though they were very time consuming, they do not hold up under close scrutiny, cannot be cleaned, and they only look good for a few hundred miles. How can this be?  The reason for this was there weren’t any alternatives available.  It was the only alternative….  Until Now.

Something Better Than a Tire Paint Pen or Tire Paint Marker?

They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that’s exactly what inspired us to create the TredWear rubber tire lettering kit as an alternative to a tire paint pen. 

We were sick of all of the problems, and poor results that a tire paint pen produced, so we created the ultimate solution for custom white letter tires.  The solution is individual, raised white tire letter inserts made out of a patented durable rubber composite compound coupled with a patented adhesive that bonds the letters to your tire.  The adhesive bonds the letters like they were a permanent part of the sidewall.  The result is indistinguishable from a factory made raised white letter tire.  If the letters are installed correctly the result is guaranteed for the life of the tire – A tire paint pen could never make such a claim. 

The results speak for themselves…
