    Default Do you show the White wall or Black wall on your tires?

    I change tires at Sam's Club currently while in school at LSU. I have a lot of people asking for white letters in, so that the black side wall is out. I personally like white letters out, makes a vehicle look, Idk, more classy. What do you guys and gals think?

    Black out, easier to keep clean. white letters look crappy if you don't keep em clean all the time.

    it all depends on the vehicle and the setup. if u have a silvy dropped to the ground with some 24's on it i would like to see it with blackwalls. if it was a silvy with some nice meats on whiteoutline for sure

    I wish I could explain to all of you how the white letters or white walls are made so you could under stand it. But for the operator making that tire it is a nasty difficult tire to make. For those tires to cure out without any problem just about every part of that tires has to be perfect or it is scrap.
    But to answer the question I would rather have the black wall.

    On my truck, I like the black. The 96 Silverado I had, it was always white. I can't really explain the preference. Maybe it's just my taste changing.

    Went on the 'net to see what range of opinions there were regarding white letter IN or OUT. White letter IN won by at least 85%. Perhaps the exception might be "show cars and customs"? How times and tire profiles have changed.
