First things first, remove your tire from your car. Make sure your car is secured with a hydraulic or any support strong enough to carry its weight while you removed the wheels and tire from it. Second, clean the tire thoroughly and make sure that there’s not a bit of dirt is left so that the tire paint pen will not smudge or smear while applying it on the letters and it’s much better to use a tire cleaner especially at the areas of the letters. Shake your tire paint pen well so that any residues will mixed up very well and try testing it on a piece of paper to make sure there’s no over spillage of paint and if there’s a smooth lining of the pen’s tip.
