Painting the White lettering ?

Anyone does this ?
i got new tire and they don’t come in black lettering so i got the std tires and put the white lettering on the inside, most people do it.

It got me thinking, is there a paint or coloring to color the white lettering to Black ?

My new KM2s have black lettering on one side and white on the other.

i really don’t need to do anything but just thinking, if it is easy I might try out the DuPont stuff.

Always did just that leave the white lettering on the inside.

But as I said just thinking/looking may do it if I can get something that is not a lot of trouble and if I can do it before the lift is in.
