    In your opinion what looks better:
    White writing visible or black writing visible on the outside of the tires.

    All depends on the wheel! But if you just got a stock wheel, I say white!

    Honestly, I think it all depends on what kind of wheels you have and what color truck as well. Personally I like it all black but i have seen some with white and they looked really sharp!

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    black out means business.

    I've done both now with my truck. I think I'll stick with the black out. Just my 2 cents.

    IMO white lettering is the best! Makes any wheel look better and can make any vehicle look better than just plain ole boring black.

    stock, for now
    im torn between them both.

    I never had white out on anything untill i bought my tacoma. it came with michelin xclt4's on the stock wheels with white letters out. Not bad, but its not preferred.

    its just something extra to clean

    IMO, If you have BFG's, then I personally think the white letters out looks better. BUT that is only as long as you don't have BLACK wheels. If you have black wheels, then BLACK OUT!
