I've searched and searched and I'm looking for white letter tires close in size to 185/60 R14 , this is a particular look i'm searching for ,I know about the BF gioodrich radial TA but they may be just a little too big, This is a 1986 Honda accord hatch and is my major project, I love the look of raised white letters but they are getting harder and harder to find, they don't have to be exactly that size, I have some room for wider tires, I'll have to check the size if someone knows of some, I found that the 14 inch Geo Storm wheels painted argent silver and with beauty rings and center H caps,look just like old Honda wheels

Grab a white paint marker and colour them in yourself on any tyre. ;)

Just bear in mind that you often look a little silly if you colour the lettering on cheap, Chinese tyres.

Exhibit A:

they used to make these in a lot of different sizes, I actually have a set of BF goodrich radial TA tires in 13 on my little custom trailer,it's been years since I've seen one of those in 13, not going to be using cheap tires

This car is an old school custom and it just screams for raised white letters, I even have the side outlet exhaust at the back and the wide low profile hood scoop,looks like a cowl hood, everything on the car is old school stuff,someone must make these

This is the exact size that I am putting on my corolla. They will be on 14"x7" supra celica rims.
Check these out:
http://www.americastire.com/dtcs/findTi ... INT&cs=185

The price is GREAT, and they handle very well for street tires. Plus, they have their logo in white on one side-and it looks good. For the price, you can't beat them.

humm. I got a set put on my 87 toyota pickup and I did white walls out. If they are black on both sides... paint pen? That's what ill do. Where else can you get a directional, reputable, tire with great grip for that price?

My bad. I guess the letters were outlined with white on one side. You can kind of see it in this picture. these were a different tire. ziex 31" I believe.
