Does anyone here know how to make decals for tires? Specifically the Deals Wheels Good Boot tire logo with the bunny logo between the words good and boot. I have some wide aftermarket resin tires that are in need of said decals for a DWNW build I am about to start on. I can give sizes of said decals if anyone wants the challenge. Here is a Google image link of the Good Boot raised white letters on the tires that I am talking about.
Hey Todd ! Unless somebody has an Alps or other way to print white letters your best bet is to find a decal company that will do custom work .
I've done tire decals a few times printed on white decal paper using a black background but it can get complicated . First most tire sidewalls are rounded so simply printing a decal the proper radius almost never fits properly , the best way is to make a paper pattern of the tire and match the artwork to it . Second is that tires come in a wide range of "black" , some are dark and some have some gray . Most printers print black , period . Printing lighter shades to match the tire takes some trial and error , even then I've resorted to painting over parts of the decal after it's applied to the tire . I guess it comes down to how picky you are and if you're willing to spend days just to letter your tires .
All that said , it can be done so send me a PM and we can discuss it further .
