hi, just popped in to say hello, got a V6 Colorado to play with, had Jeeps for years and fancied a change

Hello and welcome. Looks like Jade to me. And new tyres too? Not sure we have any members with a petrol one in Jade. Glad you know how to post pics too. It's an auspicious start.

Hi and welcome :thumbup:

The blue covering on the white lettering, I am sure thats a protective 'skin' to ensure the white lettering stays white, during shipping and fitting.
In Texas, I had new tyres fitted to another 4x4 and the lettering was blue, but simply washed off with warm soapy water.

Hi welcome and yes it is a wax to protect the lettering during shipping. Either wash off with warm soapy water or let the rain do it for you :lol:

Or even better, mount the tyre so that the white/blue lettering faces inwards :twisted:

Yes, I am perfectly aware that the blue coating comes on some new tyres BTW!

Y'know, I have a feeling that J66P might just already know that? Not sure that anyone was actually suggesting that the letters were blue. Were they?

Learning that very fast... front locker on a 90 makes it a really capable vehicle. :think:
