    Mine are already dirty and I've only got 2000 miles on them. I'm gonna need some tips on keeping the letters bright white.

    I use soft scrub and a sponge on the white lettering just about every time I wash my truck. The white lettering comes out very clean and the tires look like new.

    I like mine facing out. It makes the tires look more like an accessory to the vehicle.

    Ignore my sig pic. Those're the junk tires it came on.

    I don't really care, but mine are out. Some trucks and tires look better out, some look nice in. I also think that having the black letters out with the white showing on the inside of a raised truck also looks weird.

    for those wondering how to keep to clean your letters. try take a microfiber rag (or any rag for that matter), spray some wd40 on it and rub it on the stained letters. it takes it out pretty quickly. i just did a few letter at a time and just rubbed away the excess. works like a charm.

    I went white letters IN for my Duratracs. But the white letters out on the MGM Tacoma in the picture a few posts up looks awesome. You'll win either way. :D

    I think white letter in make certain tires look more beefy. Personally I think I want some General Grabbers with the red lettering. I think it will look tight with my red paint.
