Blackwall. I think white letters do not look good.

Blackwalls on dark wheels, white letters on light colored wheels. That's my opinion.

There was a poll on this a while back and black letters out won overwhelmingly.

White letterings look nice in my opinion but they turn black and stay that way, which really sucks.

Bleach white works very well on white letters, and I've never had a problem keeping them white and clean

Cool

I had white letters out on my last set, and thought it looked Nascarish. This time around I went black wall, and it looks way better. Really a personal choice though.

no no no, you can't say white-out. That's all racist sounding in this "politically correct" mess our government has spun up for us. Correction fluid is the new white-out.



white letters out has their place but not on offroad vehicles IMO. But that's no reason for OP not to make his own decision..............

I like the look of clean white letters. But I hate trying to keep clean. So when I'm due for new tires I'll be going black, and I'll never go back!

I always put a nice set of tires on my vehicles, I want to show them off, so I always have white wall out. If you are getting just regular tires, blackwall
