I bought a white gelliroll pen in whsmiths - wasnt expensive but i think would rub off if driven a lot.

PS1 and a cocktail stick for me. Always seem to have some knocking around. A bit old fashioned I guess, but it works perfectly.

Gelly Roll pens, less than £2 online from a certain well known auction site. Alternatively WH Smith’s do them in multi colour packs of 12 pens for under a tenner

Halfords have empty paint chip pens at the paint mixing station. These have both an extremely fine brush as well as a syringe type point. All intended for filling paint chips but perfect for tyre lettering. They don't sell  them but I'm sure asking nicely you could blag a couple free empties

Look identical  to these;

Agree with @Fuijo - tried all the rest + PS1 carefully loaded (then delicately layered) into the tyre letter recess with a cocktail stick works best.

It also ages authentically if you’re restoring - which gel pens never do.

I haven’t done any but remember watching an IconicRC YouTube clip where he mentioned using PS paint on the Tyres, he had red & blue on one of he’s buggy’s.
