So I've a new set of carbon rims, my mate generously gave me a set of Bontranger R3 tyres to put on them.

I'm going for the old 'stealth look' so I want to remove the Bontranger blurb from the sidewalls of the tyres.

Anyone got any idea what the most effective / non destructive way to go about this would be?

    sticky tape

    maybe a bit of scotchbrite to break up the transfer
  • Something like Carplan tyre black paint will do what you want. I have used it on Specialized Roubaix tyre branding without any problems.

    If they are decals/stickers then heat them with a hairdryer then they should peel off easy.
