On a side note....If you are going with Goodyear MTRs with kevlar you need to decide before you order. There are two seperate tire codes (one for white lettering and one for plain black) since the tires can only me mounted facing one side.

Out is my preference. It looks better when clean, the contrast makes it cool

Wish I had known that! I thought white out was the only choice, so that's what I have.

It's all good though. I'll remember that for when I get my 35's in a couple years.

In. Definitely in. But it's yours, so do whatever you think looks best. You're the one that has to look at it every day.

I would say in if you have black rims, and out if you have white/aluminum, sliver whatever it may be...

To me, black sidewalls add to a Jeep's trail image and white lettering adds to its street image.

Out looks better until they get scuffed...if you're playing in the rocks, thats sure to happen.

Yin (white) is stillness and yang is movement

Black out = Rough and Tough
White out = Street and Sassy

That's what I was thinking too.

It depends on where you are going to be doing most of your driving.

Personally,
I like them out!

Also Depends how clean you plan on keeping them. If you start curbing the tires or never clean the white wall the letters then it starts to look crappy. They make a bleach type cleaner for the white wall that works really well but I'm sure you can use a little soap and some elbow grease. Over all white wall looks sick, just keep it white.
