You'll have a hard time finding any tape that will stick well to the vinyl portion of the wheel. Probably best to leave it alone or replace with a wheel design you like.

OK here's comes crazy. Use a Sharpie, now hear me out.

Sharpie on human skin lasts six days. I do believe Lysol disolves sharpie, expirement first of course. I was thinking of that too but with me using the silver paint pen again.

That symbol reminds me of the Maserati logo so embelishing it is ok by me.

Consider gold paint pen, that would give you a contrasing color while also being subtle.

I remember back in middle school when I asked for black high-tops, but got white ones instead. I used a Sharpie to color both shoes entirely black. Looked good (to me) for about a week, afterwhich I'd wished I hadn't done it. frown

open the center console and do a test dot on the underside edge of the cover. when you close the cover, you wont see it, i think it's the same material
