1) I have an blue Ertl 1967 Corvette (33787) whick features wide Mickey Thompson tires in the rear. However, the lettering is on the INSIDE of the tires so one doesn't see it unless you turn the car upside down and look at the chassis. Did any racers ever have their tires this way or did they prominently display the fact that their tires were all MT ? QC issue in China? Can the tires be removed without removing the wheels?

2) The lettering is very small outlined letters that could be filled in with color. What color (white?) and what SPECIFIC TOOLS would be reccommended to fill in to make this lettering appear realistic?? How difficult a job?
