What's everyone's opinion.

I'm getting new tires put on today. White lettering out or in?

If it were for my Jeep, I'd definitely put the white lettering inside.

Black side walls are boring and everyone is running black side walls. Cars, trucks, SUV's, sport cars. Do something that stands out and people notice. And it just looks so much better.

After searching for pics of a Jeep like mine with the same tires I was getting, I decided to have the white letters out when I replaced my tires.

Your paying a lot of money for them, Why not show them off? Plus it looks goofy to see the white letters on the inside showing through, makes it look like the tires are on inside out.

Kind of depends how old you are too. White letters out were big in late 80's early 90's so some of us have been through that phase already.

I agree. That was one of several reasons I went with the white letters out.

Seeing the white letters on the inside is like seeing someone wearing a shirt inside out. Unless the tires are black walled on both sides then obviously, thats your only option.

Please explain how it makes it look like a mall crawler?

I think a lot of it depends on how your Jeep looks and if white in or out would look best on it. Can you toss up a picture of your ride?

This was during the summer, but in an hour, I'll have new shoes on her. I'm thinking whites out. Add a little something to her beautiful profile. :-)
