IMHO Never ever have the white letters out. Unless you want to look eighties!

Hasn't there been some discussion about whether or not the white is painted on for the letters, or if it's a white background that then has black on top of it to make the white? I seem to recall someone having issues where the black scuffed off to reveal more white than just the letters. Maybe someone that has a set can comment on that. I'm thinking about a set of these for my truck as well. At some point...

I am also considering these. I, too, recall a forum member mentioning that scuffing issue where it was almost like a whitewall underneath.

I've got the black letters out on my Duratracs and like them that way.

Here's a pic of the white letters out on the same color truck. (Not my cup of tea but doesn't look bad either)

Here's a thread with some pics of the Duratracs mounted

Agreed. With a polished/chrome/machined lip, they look better in, imo.
