Grooved Type

A special machine makes a groove in the tyres, then they put special paint in the groove. Looks great, can be done to any size tyres, not just the limited sizes avaialable as new whitewalls:

Some suppliers are mobile, they come to your place with their van and do it. The above is a picture of Mr. Whitewall out of Adelaide, Australia.

New tires have a thicker white section so may be more durable over the long run. They can be restained several times.

Availability

Australia

In Australia, "Mr. Whitewall" can convert any tire to whitewalls (around $80-$150/set):
