    Black or White letters? Just curious how other people feel about this.

    On my first rotation and balance I'm going to have them turn the tires black side wall out and hide the raised white letters. I've just always liked black out on my cars, trucks, and bikes.

    I currently have stock tires that are black-out.
    I voted for white letters out.... I actually like the look of the white letters out - my 96 had 'em white out. If/when I ever get new tires, I'm getting white out.

    If the truck has some kind of stripe kit on it, I like the black walls out. If it just one solid color, I like white letters out. Just my personnel preference.
