    Just ordered some 275/70/17 Hankook Dynapro ATMs for my 3rd gen silver Tacoma. I am entirely torn on whether or not I should have the white lettering facing in or out. Pls help D:

    For me it depends on how clean/complete your truck looks. If my truck is where I want it (that's impossible, too picky) with accessories/armor/camping gear. I think white lettering out looks good.

    However* If your truck looks like mine: Dirty as hell, rusty rims, non-matching camper topper, a few chips of paint missing, a dent or two, and no major upgrades....

    I'll hide the white walls, I don't deserve them yet.

    Maybe one day they'll be out....

    I like white letters, but I'm old school. Do what you like and don't worry about what anyone else thinks.

    Over 40 years old white out.

    Under 40, black out.

    I like the white lettering and wish I could keep it actually looking white. Do what looks good to you.

    As kodiakisland said, it's entirely up to you - but on silver paint, I say black wall out :thumbsup:

    Enjoy your new tires!

    OP, mount one side out, the other in. Approach vehicle by either side based on your mood for the day and the vehicle state of cleanliness.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I am leaning towards white but we will see when they come in. If I had a white or black truck it would be no question, but hey I guess time will tell if it looks clean or not!

    I've debated doing letters out on my truck next time around. But, trying to keep those white letters clean and un damaged during and after off-road excursions may be next to impossible.

    White letters out with black wheels. Black side out with any other color wheels. Thats my opinion! :thumbsup:
