    truck's needing new shoes, and ive been debating for a while. bridgestone dueler a/t revo's, or goodyear wrangler silent armors??!! ive decided to go with the goodyears! tread looks awesome, awesome reviews on tirerack.com also!!
    now, my only problem is.....black walls out, or raised white letters out??
    ive always went with white letters out, but im thinking it may be time for a change. opinions,suggestions?? thanks!!

    i believe the goodyear are outlined raised white or bsl. personally i like the bsl, but the owl looks better than solid white.

    Go with the OWL and you will have to keep those letters clean, BUT it will look really good when they are clean. I am a black letter guy for one reason: rocks/curbs. Once you hit one and mess up your lettering, that is the end of the game. I still like the outlined white lettering the best, though.

    i was thinking black walls on the outside would look cool on my silver prerunner, but white letters do look pretty good too. and a good way to advertise some good tires. guess ill make up my mind in the next couple of weeks!! then ill post pics of my new shoes!!

    You know tires I've bought lately for wife's CR-V if you research Kumho on Tire Rack Reviews for the money $$$$ they are excellent buy. Real close to Top of the Line Tires and half the cost! When I replace these OEM baloney skins (Dunlops) I'm going to look real hard at Kumho's in the 265/70-16 they give bang for the buck$$$$! Thats IMHO!:)
