Post White letters in or out?

Getting new tires soon and was wondering what the general concensus is regarding white letters? Should the tires be mounted so that the letters are showing, or "outside", or should the tires be mounted so that the letters are hidden, or "inside" the tire well?

In

Especially if you have black rims and/or black paint. Maybe out if you have a white or light colored Jeep.

Your choice your jeep. Sorry just how I feel about things of such. I don't make your payment.

Build it or mod it for you.

on a street jeep white out is fine but if you plan on wheeling it, especially if you play in the rocks, you will most likely rub the letters enough so after one or two times on the trail they will start to look like crap.

This seems to come up about every six months. Do what you want....it's your jeep!

The current trend is to black out everything, twenty years ago it was chrome and big white letters. Each generation seems to come up with its own way to be different, and ultimately they all end up looking the same. Kind of funny actually.

I've got one jeep with black letters (not white in) and one with white letters out. To me they both look great.

If you knew me well, you'd know I've never been accused of doing something just because everyone said it was the way to go.

I was just interested in opinions on the matter.
