    These are photos of my new GoodYear Wrangler Dura Trac tires:thumbsup:and my old Dunlop stock tires.

    The photo showing the tracks in the snow. The old stock tire on top and the new Dura Trac is bottom track. You can see there is hardly any tracks caused by the old stock tire:help:. Winter just became a little more safer.
    I decided to go with the black walls out.

    Too much to list, but enough to get me in trouble. Repeatedly.
    Say, that's a mighty fine looking truck there!
    I'm curious about the rear bumper. Pics? Details? Price?

    Hate the stock Dunlop's. They might as well be drag slicks but I'm going to wear them till they are slick shoes. Blackout BTW. :burnrubber:

    I have a TRD Sport and opted to go white out, I believe it enhances the sport look. It is however a matter of personal taste, so do what makes you happy.

    Here are mine white out after 30,000+ miles

    I do use a tire cleaner once a month to bring them back to look like new. If you don't do that they will look pretty terrible. In this photo they are not cleaned though....

    I run mine white out since I have silver wheels. If I were running black wheels I would run them black out.

    Use this stuff and it'll clean up the white lettering and make them look brand new again. I use it to clean tires regardless of the lettering. It's a great tire cleaner. I noticed that Black Magic recently bought them.

    Just ordered My Dura Tracs last night and I'm having this same dilemma for my silver taco. Most likely going to run black Raceline Raptor's with them.

    I just ordered my Duratracs and I will need to make the same decision. I think I am going white out because my truck is white and silver wheels.

    That being said I think if wheels are black then black out.

    I sure love some of those satin bronze Konigs and some of those ProComps... Some damn nice wheels on here.
