Tyre Pen / Tyre Shine

Hello all.
I've decided to do the terribly distasteful act of tyre pen on my track car, mainly because I'm childish. Don't worry, I have decent branded tracktyres, it won't be "Linglong" in tyre pen!
My query is this: On a black car with matt black wheels, tyre shine is needed. However is there one which won't cause the pen to flake off?

I'd literally just be going over "Federal" and "595 RS-R" on my Clio 172.

I've attached a photo of the car in question.



Thanks in advance!

I suppose t depends how it reacts to the pen.

I would start with anything water based.

Have you got an old tyre you can test this on? (That the dressing doesn't smudge the dried tyre pen)

No experience myself but I would give the letters a key with quick rub with some wire wool to try and give it a good chance of sticking and may be some panel wipe if there's been tyre dressing on previoulsy

Thanks! Got wire wool, and the tyres are brand new so that shouldn't be an issue.

Below are some cars with yellow tyre pen which I think works pretty damn well:

As they're brand new I presume manufactures use a release agent to get the tyres out of the mould so this may need removing
