I'd say that style is kind of old, but go ahead and do it. If you don't like it, go hit the twisties and wear out the tires and mount new ones. Simple solution. :D

So when you look at your drain plug you are happy, which is gay, right? :D

Looking at my drain plug doesn't make me unhappy.... takes a mirror and alot of balance which is a feat in itself.

This went a way I didn't expect. I say no to the tire lettering. I think it would look odd to have lettering on top of the lettering that's imprinted on the tire sidewall. But each of us have our own aesthetic choices. Maybe letter the rim? I wouldn't do that either, but it's a clean surface. No rim jokes...

TLDR: BMW rider says GSXS rider's bike is gay but GSXS1000 riders plug is clean and free of debris.
Lettering on tires have homosexual tendencies to Australians.
we all have the lettering on tires some names on tires are a little odd....it seems when putting makeup on the letters lies the problem......but at times one must be bold.....who are we to judge,,,,,bet my S21in blue to match my master link,,,,theres any idea

IMO it can look good on a vintage custom/cafe/street-tracker with bias-ply tires. But I don't think you'll get a positive reaction in doing it with a modern bike. Plus you don't have much of a sidewall with radial tires, so you might achieve the same effect with rim tape and/or rim decals (which are much more acceptable).

Friend of mine did it to his new tyres on his rsv4. I thought it looked tacky, he obviously loved it enough to do both tyres. His opinion mattered the most.
