Well, Koker tire makes add on whitewalls. Personally I've had bad luck with them.....but then again the pair that I tried were like 30 years old or something like that lol.

Every pair that I've seen turn into a round "wing" at highway speed, looks kinda cool though

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!

Have never seen a 31 with a white-wall

Give Coker tire a call, if any are available they'll have them.

Start looking in the rat rod magazines, they are probably a good place to source them.
