    Maybe I've spent too long watching Disney Cars but I am toying with the idea of whitewall tyres to go with my alpine White vert

    I'm sure I've seen a pic on here of someone who has White Walls but what I would like to know is are these a particular brand of tyre or do you paint them yourself.

    If the latter what paint do you use, how long does it last etc. Etc.

    I had white walls on my 15" winter wheels. Looked alright but wouldn't do them out of choice, now that the tyres are bald i'm gonna bin em.

    Try halfords if you want the tyre paint but I wouldn't do white-on-white, maybe if your car was black or dark blue it would have worked

    Fair point chaps, I think I'll do some photoshopping before I commit to it.

    You're probably right Sham, White on White could look a bit naff.

    I like 50's American cars
