Tires - White Lettering Out or In

Just wondering what the popular opinion is these days.

Raised white lettering on the outside or do you prefer the black wall look on your truck.

Put my letters in and went with the black wall. I like both, but did not want to have to deal with scrubbing the heck out of the letters to keep them clean.

I like them out. Of course I have a white truck so I think it goes well with it.

White truck, black out. Matches better with my black Ranch Hand bumpers and my bug shield and vent visors.

My truck is black, my wheels are black; i like a little contrast so my bumpers are (stock) chromed, diamond plate running boards, and (stock) chrome center caps - it's not only personal preference, but the contrast thing too

I like em white in, black out. white out looks good on white trucks for sure, but to me it reminds me of the eighties. Which in fact was ALL GOOD!

I agree my truck is black with chrome, also and I do like the look.

Yah, I remember the eighties cause I was too young to drink and forget. I lived a lot of cool stuff through two older brothers and had a blast though

I guess the answer to this original post should be:

What ever YOU prefer. Being different from each other makes the world far more interesting than if we were all the same. Both ways can and do look good. Just hope the name of the tire is cool and not wimpy sounding
