Text around an axis, like on a tire?

This is done in the sketch mode by inserting text. You can then define a curve to align the text. Your curve should be an arc.

Text wrapped on a surface, like ?.
There's an unwrap command that will flatten the surface, project your text, then wrap it back up. This one is limited in the surfaces that it can unwrap.
