White Letters In Or Out?

With the budget a little tight I probably will not go with the BFG A/T's, so I will have to save the $150.00 and buy the Sport Kings, but I hate the lettering, the tread is similar to the BFG's, so that is good. Anyone have a picture of a white TJ with the white letters in? I think that it will still look good but I thought I could possibly get a preview.

Going from a 30" tire to a 31" tire will I still be good with the speedo gears and the spare tire?

Here is a pic of how it currently looks:

Personally I prefer that black side out. White lettering kind of looks "poserish" plus it just gets ripped up and dirty quick if you take it offroad. Very few offroaders have the white lettering on the outside.

I have a white wrangler and I mounted mine with the black side out. IMO it looks better that way.

i dont like white out, but it does look ood on your jeep since its white.. one way to decide, is do you like scrubbing the letters to keep them clean..

Don't like white letters out - don't like centercaps - don't like chrome - don't like bug deflectors - don't like nerf bars - and I hate all those beads and crap hanging from rearview mirrors.

Of course, if everyones stuff looked the same who would we make fun of?

Somebody should jump on J.B.. He said people with white letters out are posers. Somebody could get a feeling hurt if he keeps posting like that.
Might even need to whip out the tempory ban stick

Maybe he did not know that we dont make fun of people on this forum. Most of us are very sensitive to words like poserish. Thats like saying people with red jeeps are mall crawlerish.

at what rpm? its all a ratio.. for mine with 35s.. at 30 mph my speedo is about 5 miles off.. at 60 mph my speedo is almost 10 miles off

with bigger tires it will read slower than u are really going..

In other words when my speedo is showing 50 mph, i'm really going 60

The odometer will also read slwoer.. so when you are on a trip and the odometer shows you've gone 100 miles .. in reality you've gone more than that.. 117 miles in my case as my speedo is 17% slower.
