I'm getting my new 31 x 10.50 x 15 Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs put on tomorrow morning and I wanted to get people's opinion. I have black rims and the current tires have the white lettering showing. I was thinking of having the new DuraTracs mounted without the lettering showing. Here is an old pic with the old tires and without my new bumper.
"Unless you're the lead dog, the view never changes."
Momma always told me, "Don't play in the dirt wearing a white shirt."
I like the looks of the white letters, especially when the wheels are black. But, I would never run them out on a Jeep. Unless it rarely ever goes off road.
The letters will get beat up and look like crap. You also have to constantly scrub them so they are nice and white, or they will also look like crap.
Since 1997, every tire I've put on my vehicles (two trucks, 1 blazer, 3 jeeps) all had the white letters turned inside. I decided to make a change and the set I just put on a few weeks ago got the white letters turned out.......I like it! It's a nice change for me. I could care less if they get dirty or scraped up.........
I know my Jeep still has the mall crawl look with the white letters and all the chrome but thats what was on it when I bought it. Even in the seventies I went black out. When these Toyos wear out I'm going black on black.
Shoot, I just finished using Rustoleum bed lliner on my wheels...(1st jeep) never thought about the white lettering. I think I like black on black all the way. Now I will have to have them turned around. ha
