White lettering

The white lettering on the outside of the tires. They're starting to fade a bit on mine. Is there any way to prevent it or is it just going to come off after a while? Is it also possible to get them re-done?

depending on u're cleaning schedule, they're eventually going to dull...and if not dull, they will start to crack a bit. u could try painting them u'reself, if u have a steady hand and some white paint, but i dont know how long it would last as the tire flexes and moves.

this just goes along with general tire color fadeing and becoming dull and browish....

Soft scrub with bleach and fine steel wool works much better.
