Taking a closer look today :think: it seems the kit requires paint to the tyres with a "white wall" effect :angry-banghead: that's not going happen :lol: :lol:

Have you thought about painting the whole wheel white first, then using a fine permanent black marker pen to colour in the edge where the white meets the black tyre. Then hand paint on a dark grey for the tyres. The pen will give you a good neat edge. I presume the hub caps are separate pieces that you can paint silver first before gluing on?

This video will show you what I'm talking about with regards to using the pen



A circle stencil may also be of use
