    I'm looking at getting some goodyear duratracs and I was wondering if I should go with white or black writing on the sides? I drive a white tacoma so I was thinking going with white. Any opinions?

    Okay, I'll be the old fart in the crowd--White letters OUT. Of course I also like chrome which very few here seem to, so take that for what it's worth. :rolleyes:

    And the 80's were a friggin' blast! :D

    White out only looks good on the bfgs and duratracs IMO, and it doesn't always look good with those either.

    I have white 08 with mix of chrome/black trim so I put letters out this time. If you have all black trim then blackwall out looks better. Had 05 with blackwalls out............
