I've always liked the old-school white tire lettering. Just wondered if anyone thought it would look good on a riv?

A few examples of white letter tires on modern cars are on this forum:

Myself, I'm undecided, if the car could back up the look with power I think it might be cool, but only if there is meat to the sidewall of the tire. I don't think it would look good with lower profile tires.

I don't think it would look good. The Riv was designed for blackwalls. Older gen riv's might be able to pull it off, with the wire wheel hubcaps (just get real wire spoke wheels already, don't fake it!)

White letters always felt NASCAR or TopFuel racer to me. Depends on your intent with the Riviera, but I prefer all black or white walls in some cases.

I do not think that it would look good on a Riv UNLESS

they were Goodyear Eagles with really big letters

You took a Midnight Blue Pearl Riv and painted red flames and then put a 24 on the sides along with a thousand other stickers.

So basically a Jeff Gordon edition of the Riviera. Would tend to advise against that...unless you'd like to have girls like this pose with your car (Note the Jeff Gordon Monte Carlo in the background)
