Tyre Paint?

I have seen a couple of photos of tyres painted (white paint on Avon Cobra). Where can I get some in the UK, How long does it hold before you need to go over again? Thanks.

Tyreart is the company in UK. Pens are available in different colours . This is the best paint pen to use.

My Cobras aren't painted, they are made that way.

There is nothing cooler than whitewall tires (tyres) on a Bobber. I love them! However, I remember back in the 50's and 60's when my mom and dad both had cars with whitewall tires. I had the job of washing the cars. Cleaning the whitewall tires was a real pain in the butt.

Good luck on getting your whitewalls. I know that they will look sharp.

According to website I gotta buy 12 pens, is that right for 2 tyres, just want to paint avon cobra bits, don't know if i am brave enough to go full white wall. It's not the look that scares me I think white wall looks really retro, its keeping them clean. I think I will risk just writing first.

Hi, I used oil based sharpie pens. I bought them at a office supply store(Staples).They last about 2 months before a touch up.
