How many decals per kit?
VANITY Tyre Stickers sell our letter and logo kits as a complete set for the entire car. There is a 10 character maximum for each phrase requested so if your phrase exceeds 10 characters you will need to pay an additional amount per letter.
Each tyre letter kits is sold in quantities of 4 or 8, designed for all four tyres on the vehicle. If you select 4, you will receive a phrase to cover on side of each tyre, top or bottom. If you order 8, you will receive enough for top and bottom of each tire. For example, ordering a "MICHELIN" tyre letter kit of 4 will be for each tyre, one side whereas a tyre letter kit of 8 will be the phrase "MICHELIN" on top and bottom of the tyre.
What is included with each order?
Each tyre letter kit order will include the VANITY Tyre Stickers product, application instructions and our unique application adhesive (Permanent Raised Rubber).
Are VANITY Tyre Stickers sold as individual letters or a decal kit?
We do not sell 'cookie-cutter' letters that will take hours to apply and risk incorrect spacing and orientation! Our tyre letter kits are curved to fit our tyre exactly as ordered and are a continuous decal on transfer film for quick and easy application. The film may be split into multiple pieces in order to fit your order. No risk of getting adhesive on your fingers or having issues with proper placement of decals!
I'm not sure what size letter height to order, how do I pick the right letter height for my tire letter kit?
One of the biggest risks of damage to your VANITY Tyre Stickers is ordering too large for the tire sidewall surface. The tyre has a designated tread bead and inner bead that defines the tyre sidewall surface, this is the 'safe area' for application of tyre letter kits.
Sportbike and off-road motorcycle tyres have a standard size but must be measured.
There are two methods of determining the proper fitment for your tyre:
Measure the sidewall surface with a ruler - Be sure to measure the sidewall, NOT the entire surface from tread to wheel! If you have any doubt, send us a photo!
Generic Tyre Sizing guidelines - Use the generic tyre sizing chart below to guide your decision. Identify the aspect ratio or series (generally the middle number of the tyre specification) and match to the chart. Note: some tyres may have a unique aspect ratio outside of these guidelines, when in doubt email us!
Tire Series Specification MAX Recommended Letter Height
Tyre Size: 245/45/R17 MAX Recommended Height: 3.8cm
When in doubt, it is safest to size the same height as the tyre manufacturer's brand letters. Anything larger may risk damage in cornering or standard driving conditions.
Can VANITY Tyre Stickers produce white wall or color tire wall kits?
White wall kits, dash line kits, flares and other tyre accents are all possible with VANITY Tyre Stickers.
Note: These kits are add more weight to the tyre which may require balancing the wheel again.

My Permanent Raised Rubber VANITY Tyre Letter Kit included a glue bottle, is this enough glue for my order?
The VANITY Tyre Lettering kit specialty adhesive should be used sparingly so as to avoid 'oozing' after applying to the sidewall. Should you need more glue due to an application issue or damage from driving, it is available through our Shop.
This adhesive is not standard super glue and should not be substituted!
I'm having trouble getting the letter kit to stick, what's going on?
The most important step is the tyre preparation. You may think the tyre is clean but oil and dirt are difficult to remove, even new tyres have to be thoroughly cleaned! Proper cleaning will ensure a successful bond.
Customers with raised lettering or 'ribs' on the tyres also may face challenges. These areas require using a credit card or similar object to apply pressure in areas that are too narrow for your finger pressure. Without a contact surface, the decal cannot bond!
If you still face challenges with application, email us at email@example.com for additional instructions.
Do I need to sand the tire sidewall prior to application?
Yes! This is a very important step to ensure a proper and strong bond to the raised rubber lettering. Roughen out the sidewall where you are going to apply the raised rubber lettering.
Does the wheel need to be balanced after installing a tire letter kit?
Our Raised Rubber Letter kits are only 1.5mm and 1mm thick and also will result in a negligible weight addition.
If you order a flare or whitewall Permanent Raised Rubber Letter kit you may need to consider balancing the wheels again since this adds more weight.
How do I clean my lettering kit?
The Permanent Raised Rubber Letter kits are designed to be cleaned after discoloring from rain, tyre shine, snow, dirt, etc. This can be done using a standard whitewall cleaning agent, dirt and oil remover or acetone / rubbing alcohol.
Will VANITY Tyre Stickers come off with car wash or power washing?
Permanent Raised Rubber Letter kits withstand standard washing and power washing! However, refrain from using any automatic car wash system or similar that grabs the wheel/tyre, or rubs against the tyre, while passing through the wash system which in turn can cause damage to your decals.
I lost a letter from hitting a curb, can you replace this?
Yes we do replace them at a little cost.
