I want these on my classic. Getting Yoko A032's. I think it will look awesome. Just don't know if I want them yet. Might have to photoshop it when it's actually got tires on it.

I installed a set this past weekend. The graphics themselves were a bit larger than I would've personally done and the job was messier than I think it should've been. I think the company could probably ponder a while and vastly improve the buying/installing experience. At that price, it's almost expected.

With that said, it's a neat option.

It does seem a bit messy. Looks like rubber cement and some good white rubber letters. I did see that some of the letter styles can have custom font heights. I might have to do that considering the limited space I'll be working with on the 10" wheels.

That's literally all that it is. You get some rubber letters that have presumably been laser cut from a rubber sheet...and then you get a generic rubber cement applicator bottle like you would with a model car. For the price they're charging, the experience isn't all there. It is, however, a good solution for people who don't want to paint their tires.

I'll be really interested to see how long they last, (stay in place, don't fade) rubber letters you glue in place seem a bit sketchy at those prices.

Rally, did you put them on your daily? please let us know how they hold up

Nope...I put them on my buddy's Ferrari. I'll let you know how they hold up...but its usage wont compare to a daily set of tires. I'm skeptical that they'll be able to stay clean or hold on...but I could easily be wrong.

I personally liked it better when we had just put the Toyo logo on, but the owner wanted to go all the way. Like I said, I think they'd look better if they were smaller.

I actually prefer the faded paint look.
