White Letter Or Blackwall Tires

I have had white letter tires on my truck for over 10 years. I'm kinda getting tired of the look. I am contemplating having my BFG ATs flipped to black wall out. If I do this, what can I use to hide the white lettering so you cant see it from under the truck, black shoe polish?

Does anyone have any thoughts? Should I keep the white letters out?

Once you flip them and they get dirty, you won't be able to see it anymore

I liked white lettered tires when I was 16 and tired of it by 17

You and your free advertisement for the manufacturer :P

I personally like the white letter showing. It shows everyone that I have goodyear wrangler duratracs (which were not cheap). And plus, I get a lot of compliments and a lot of "Aren't those expensive?" (Yes they are)

I put a lot of work and cash into my truck, so I appriciate when people notice. I also appriciate having my own opinion and being able to post it, without getting flamed instantly because I gave it. So respectfully, screw you too.

Black walls look cheap to me. They look like you got a set of no-name cheap tires.

White letters out!

Thank you! Most people don't understand what it takes to make our trucks what they are. They drive around in stock pickups and just don't get it.

Letters out, and when they get dirty hit them with Westly's bleach white. They'll glow.

see i have the opposite opinion. if the truck is shiny and nice i dont want to take away from it with white letters...if its blacked and has black steel wheels, white letters catch they eye and theyre really the only thing doing it.

side note: i think the new general grabbers are pretty sweet with the red letters...not for every truck but i think they are cool for a white or black truck
