    Tire Stickers on 17" rims

    Does anyone have tire stickers on their 17" rims. I have only found two photos online showing 18" installs.

    I'm thinking about doing 1.25" letters for my Firehawk Indy 500 tires

    I purchased some tire stickers from tiresticker.com for my 17" rims. I'm hoping to get time to put them on this week or weekend, so I can't offer you any advice on installation just yet. The tires are Toyo Proxes 888's

You can do that if you are happy with the existing letters on your tires. Not a huge difference in sidewall height from the 17 to 18s so I think you will be just fine.

    I have pictures of the etchings in my build thread linked in my signature post #620

    Those do look good! I am really starting to get a thing for that look. I didn't know you could get custom ones that really match what is on the tire. I like that idea.

    I think these are on 17's. Even though this is a Nitto tire, the Goodyear stickers still look pretty good!

    I got mine on this week...

    These are on 17" rims/tires, with a 1.25" decal height. I assume that height includes the stripe underneath the letters, so the letters may be a little shorter than the standard 1.25" letters. I can measure later, if you want to know. I struggled getting the amount of glue correct. I had a little ooze out from under the letters on some of them. I'm going to try to clean it up with acetone later. How have some of you experienced guys dealt with excess glue? Besides the glue, I really like the way they look and the vibe they give the car...

    More details in my build thread.

    Hey, jgpost, Just in case you aren't aware of this; tirestickers.com has some suggested letter sizes based on your side wall heights. They also ask for your tire size and type so they can design the decals accordingly. It's not a one size fits all type of thing.
