I am interested in getting tire stickers on my gen 2 R8. Wanted to see if anybody on the forum has done it and what the experience has been like?

I have a red R8, so if I do it will look to have “Audi R8” lettering and red logo on top and “Pirelli” at bottom.

Would love to see some examples if anybody out there has done the same.

Thanks

Interestingly I ordered a set yesterday. I simply ordered "Michelin" in red for my phantom black GT. I'll post pics and my experience installing. I should have them next week.

I actually like it. They were very easy to apply and they definitely aren't coming off without a LOT of work, so, best to be sure you want to do it.

I'm on the fence about them. But your red looks good.
Thanks. I went for it thinking it would key on the calipers and GT emblems and it does. It actually looks brighter in the picture than in person. I probably wouldn’t do it randomly. It should tie in somewhere. My wife wants pirelli in yellow now for her Ferrari because of the shields and yellow calipers against black on black...

I was actually in that same spec Huayra roadster haha! At the end of the day, it's your own style. Working with Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini, and Koenigsegg for many years. I can tell you very few of these cars have tire stickers. Money definitely cannot buy Taste. Sticker away my friend, Sticker away
FYI: I'm pretty sure that is the actual Pirelli tire made with the white raised lettering, not a corny sticker.

Don't get wrapped up in this guys BS. He's the best, he's been in all the cars, he's the richest, he's the best looking, he worked for Ferarri, he drove a Pagani, etc.. shame he doesn't realize the one thing he really is.

I think the tire stickers look pretty wild. Adds a touch to the car. The best part, you like them and that's all that counts. Nice job!

Apparently even you can't tell the difference. Have a nice day Squirt. :)

I will tell you that they look pretty ragged after a bit. So regardless of ricer or not opinion, they will age poorly.

This is possible, hence it's a bit of an experiment. They are definitely not coming off, but I'll be curious to see how they wear. Better than tire markers and paint to be sure.

Nice. Went to Concourso Italiano in Monterey last year and checked out all the tires on the Ferraris. Only two that showed any indication of track time. 0 on the Lamborghini's, Lotus', Maserati's.
These cars are meant for more than revving at a stop light or speeding down the highway.
