    Since we're talking weather in here, I'll chime in too lol

    Wind chill was -7 when I got up this morning, high today was like 19, and will be 62 by Thursday. Freaking ridiculous. Maryland has been like an arctic tundra for the last couple winters. And it doesn't even snow so there's nothing to do in it. Just stupid cold, with no snow. I know a lot of people are gonna disagree lol, but if it's gonna be that cold, it might as well be dropping some snow.

    Weird to me how white lettering on tires is popular now. I remember buying mine an the dealer put new tires on it with the side with white lettering showing, I hated it.

    What was the pen called at O'Reillys? I also like that look. And did you ask anyone there about the durability of it or how long it might last? I know going off-roading will probably shorten the life of the paint on the tire but still

    Yeah with my truck being white I felt the tires needed some contrast in halo with how it came out.
    The pen I used I got from O' Reilly's
    Duplicolor Hot Tires

    I have no idea how long it lasts I'm assuming just like anything else prep is 90% of the quality
    I let it cure for 24 hours before I drove on it
    I hope it last for at least 6 months or so
    But for 8$ and a little time maybe each time I rotate I'll touch up as needed

    Mine have some crazy font and writing on them, they'd end up looking like a 3rd grade art project.
