    Getting my Duratracs installed next week and will be painting my stock Sport wheels flat black. I think whites out-or-in really depends on the color of the truck and the wheels.

    What do you guys think -- in or out with my truck? I'm leaning toward in...

    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.

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