Simplest solution, buy Cooper Tyres. Some models come painted and it lasts the life of the tyre. Not to mention, that it's also a damn neat job.

Looks good. But it doesn't look like it will last long.

How long did it take for you to complete this ?

Abdul,
Please post a snap of paint brush. It is very difficult to maintain the accuracy. How you prevent the paint to go outside the letters boundary.

I had painted the Brand Name and Tyer make on my Pajero Tyers with regular Asian Paints white oil paint about a year back. Have been doing some extreem offroading through mud, slush and hard terrain but the paint is still intact.

I had applied 2 layers of paint at an interval of 1 day for each layer and post that had used the Bossini Teflon spray (Available for about 180/-Rs) over it (may be that has made it last long).

Its time to change the shoes for my Pajero, will use the same method for the new tyers.

Some Pictures for your reference

Bare in mind that the only encounter I've had with Art (Drawing/Painting) is while doing Engineering Drawing

I used Asian Paint white enamel oil paint to paint my tyres. I used only 1 coat, and then wanted to see how they hold up. The paint never peeled off. However, compared to the day they were painted, when they looked bright white, a few drives later, they had started to become dull. It has been six months now, and the color looks almost indistinguishable from the rest of the sidewall. However, the paint is very much there, as I can make out when i run my fingers over it.

Is this only because I used only one coat of paint??

I came across this pretty interesting video. Though expensive, I don't think there's any other option out there to get custom lettering/logos on wheels. The lettering looks fantastic and it seems it'll last a long time too.
