Google '303 rubber treatment' it may do the trick.

Get the tyres you want and get the white walls painted on Vern. The add on ones are known as flappers for a reason.

The painting is cheap and effective. Just donít hit the kerb. I dont know what paint they use but you could just touch up when dirty.

Flappers (aka "turkey gobblers") are not recommended for radial tyres, something to do with conventional versus radial sidewall construction.
