white lettering in or out?

I have a black Sahara and I'm about to mount my new bfg's to black cragars. Should I put the white lettering side of the tire in or out. Just wondering what your guys opinions are.

White out until the letters get all faded and crummy looking IMO

Just my personal opinion and .02 worth...

White lettering out reminds me more of a street Jeep
White lettering in reminds me more of a trail Jeep

I put the black out. And then took some shoe dye and covered the letters that were on the inside. IMHO it looks dumb on a lifted jeep to be able to see the white letters from the back side.

I'm with you Jerry, there is nothing tackier than scuffed up gangster whitewalls...except maybe bent curb feelers!

If you weren't going with either a murdered out () or a black wheel look, I might've said white wheel.

But black Cragers require black-wall tires. It's in the manual. InfernoGirl's avatar shows why... and makes me need a pantaloons change.

Im going with the minority here but i say white out it breaks it up a little and gives a little definition to you rim n tire. my opionion though.

Was it my jeep (He He He)

I'd put the letters out on the drivers side, (so you can watch for damage) and

The letters in on the passenger side-simple

I can't tell you how many times I've done that ()

Oh come on! There is no way that having the letters face out should make you think the jeep is any more - or any less - of a trail rig. It's a totally inconsequential FASHION decision. The style might be a particular way right now, but hell, when Jerry was a kid the fashion was wooden spokes. Fashion changes.

Next thing you know you guys will be telling me I can't wear black socks with shorts and sandals.
