Anyone have any experience with Ranger brand Tire paint? I need to "paint" a wide wall stripe on a black tire (non T).
thanks,
Mike S

Mike, I don't like to suggest much because I am not a chemist and can't tell you if my recommendation will harm the rubber in the tire or other things.....But having stated that, I had to use my spare for a benefit show and it was a black wall....I was desperate and looked around my garage and spotted a can of "ZINSSER brand BIN Shellac -Base-Interior and Spot Exterior Primer" an Ultimate Stain Blocker.... That is what is stated on the can which I had purchased at Home Depot a year earlier.... I brushed this on with two coats and it looked great.... the color was almost identical to the other three and still looks as good as when I used it four months ago... No peeling, discoloration or any complaints.... Brushed on easy and worked better than the paint I used one time that was made for tires.... BUT, if someone knows why this shouldn't be used please inform Mike to not use it.... I used it on my spare that was old anyway......Even my biggest critic "my wife" stated it looked good and no one noticed the difference at the benefit.....Or at least it was never brought up......

Mike I used it on a rear tire of my '12 because I got a rim cut and cannot find a replacement 30X3-1/2 whitewall to replace it. It took several coats to get it right and it looked good for about a year but then it started to crack and peel. I love the way the whitewall looks on the car but it was too much work with too little return. I took the other whitewall off on the same side and replaced them both with blackwall tires. I have 2 whitewall tires on one side and blackwalls on the other side. After three years either no one has noticed it or they were too polite to comment on it.

Well, I am not a chemist either. But several years ago, I started painting black tires black with whatever black paint I have handy just to cut down on UV exposure. It seems to reduce surface cracking, and no apparent ill effects so far. I have used about half rattle can black and half brush-on oil based black.
For whatever it is worth.

Mike! I really like Ranger Tire Paint. Here are some before and after pics. I also have a tire that was a blackwall that I taped off and turned into a whitewall!

Thanks so much for the opinions. I've got a can on order.
