    Do you guys prefer the white letter facing in or out on black wheels? If it matters, I have Rugged Trails.

    I like white out, makes it look cleaner when you wash your truck, makes the overall truck look better IMO.

    Lol man theres a lot of these "in or out" threads. I vote out, but it depends on the color of your truck IMO. Ive got white, so I like the look of the white lettering out.

    ahhh, now i see them, I don't know why it didn't come up in the search earlier. I guess because I did title only. It seems that white lettering in is an overhelming favorite.

    Ahhh, now I see. I don't know why those threads didn't come up when I searched the first time. Maybe because I searched title only. Looks like letters in is an overwhelming favorite.

    Stock wheels = letters out

    Aftermarket Wheels = Letters in

    Off brand tires either way= Letters in

    Haha! I know i know, I hear that a lot from some buddies. I guess im weird like that :crazy:, I like havin my truck looking good and able to glisten in the sun. Which with a gravel driveway with a lot of rain its hard to keep clean, especially with offset tires it seems pointless to wash it :smack:. I may be in a category by myself or a with a select few that like to wash their truck to make it look good. :D

    White lettering can look good on white trucks, but I personally like the look of them facing in on most trucks and you don't have to spend the effort keeping them clean either. It's a bit of a pain when you put tire shine on the tires when they're facing out as I've found it darkens the letters and then you have to make sure you get it in between them too to make it look nice.
