Well 2 good things, I got mine flipped friday and it looks way better. And the bonus, when the girl called me to see if im happy with my new jeep I brought this up. Well she said let me look into it. Called me back about 5 mins later and said they would do it for free using one of my tire rotates from the free service plan.
So I got it done for nothing!

Chrome wheels look good on jeeps if you take care of em.

That's why it's your jeep, you do as you like. I've always had OWL and like them... while I dislike all the "black out" wheels nowadays. Blackwalls do look good on Wranglers, but OWL's look just as good. On a truck, classic or hot rod white letters look good. White walls on some classics.
I'm thinking of running bright polished or chrome wheels and white letters just to be different if someone doesn't like it, I could give a shit. It's mine.

Hell i have summit racing stickers on my jeep too.
Theres a few dealers here that put big stickers all the way across the back window with their internet url. Why would someone allow that?
The tires i have are a very good tire. Very good price, low hum on highway, work greaf where i use them. Therefore im fine to advertise them. On the other hand, the dealer i went to screwed me over, you will not see their stickers on my jeep. Summit racing hooked me up on tires. Cragar made an affordable wheel. Quadratec ripped me off on shipping, no sticker for them.
Chrysler screwed jeeps in several ways, good thing they didnt put a pentastar logo on my jeep or i woulda removed that.

Never like white letters... My dealer swapped mine around on my first oil change for free.. Then I sold them and got 33's !! NO White Letters... Black wall looks cleaner..
But if you have em, keep them clean, it will look good too

I've always had white letters showing on all my vehicles and had special cleaner just to make the letters shine.
That being said I want with black on the outside on my jeep. I just preferred it. I think both look fine, just go with whatever you prefer.

|Brewbek||Just paid $93 to have mine flipped yesterday, all 5. Blackwall out now.|

|panthermark||Depends on the vehicle and the rims. It looks great on some, not so great on others. I really like it on my stock wheels and tires.|

I like RWL tires on Jeeps, 4WD pickups, and older muscle cars.
Anything else, not so much.

I meant to say "save as" and not "save". you will overwrite the original if you just save.
Takes like 5 minutes though. Easy peasy.

The C3 Corvette with a 165 hp engine speaks for itself.
Porsche's 928 came out with a V8 that produced 219 hp and was a practical failure in the marketplace.
The Lambo LP400 has appeal to certain people, but not everyone agrees that multiple air intakes, wings, and side skirts are attractive.
If you enjoy image over performance [and leisure suits], the 1970s are your era.
I'd rather have something that adds to the performance of the JK/JKU.

|IORRichie||Yea I think this is what i will have to do, as the dealer wants 80 bucks to flip em|
|05-16-2013 11:32 PM|
Personally i like the white out. But pretty much all my vehicles have been black so it blends in differently than with a white vehicle.
But easy way to tell, somebody mentioned photoshop earlier but this is easier. Put a pic from the side on your computer. Open it with MS paint, zoom in and paint black over the white letters. Save the pic and compare them side by side.
In the end it's what you like better that matters. But this will only take a few minutes of your time to get an idea what it will look like all black. Vs. time and money to go have them rotated, which would all be wasted if you decide later you liked the white better.

Don't Like the White Walls
Personally, I don't like white walls. I run KM2's but have them switched so the white walls don't show. Just make sure if you reverse them, they can run that way. Some tires you can not reverse.

Why do you still have the jeep logo on your grill and steering wheel?

|Reece||I traded up to 18's at the dealership, take-offs imagine. I had them break them down and turn the white letters in. Next you jack them up wheel by wheel, clean them, wipe them down with white gas or some such solvent and spray them with black bumper paint for plastic bumpers and trim. It's pretty easy, spin as you clean and spray.|

|JerryJeepster||Do they still make white lettered tires?? Not a fan but to each his her own. Big fran those are blue! Hehehe|

|SilverSport||White letters out look good on Jeeps provided you keep em clean. Otherwise put em on the inside.|
|05-16-2013 06:52 PM|
Maybe I'm old school but I love the white letters out!!!
|05-16-2013 06:12 PM|
|05-16-2013 06:09 PM|
Agreed. I use a Dremel and grind it off. Yes, if they want to lower the price of their tires, I'll sign an agreement to use white side out. Until then, no thanks.

The 1970s were an intellectual desert of automotive engineering and design. I lived through it and it was a joke for automobiles.
The Pacer, the GM X body, the Vega, the Pinto, the Cordoba, and the 165 hp Corvette are the proof.
