    No choice for me, as my current tires do not have white lettering.

    White letters out if ya got'em. I think they make a truck look tuff. I ran blackwall Yokos on my Burb for a few years and it looked like a station wagon. Recently got me some Cooper Discoverer ATPs with white letters out,and it changed the whole look of the truck.

    Im sorry I just need the contrast. If it was like a camaro, it'll be a different story. I cant stand solid black, and I could never drive a blacked out truck.

    I like white letters out. I scrub them like its nobody's business until they are white as the day they went on the truck...only after the blue crap got washed off. When I get a small lift and run 33s, I will probably get a tire that has white letters.

    If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

    I prefer the white letters out. Breaks up the monotone of my black truck with big black tires. I just haven't seen too many 20" tires with white letters.
    Sometimes the best part of my job is that my chair swivels.

    I prefer mine with the letters in, but sometimes it depends on what vehicle their on usually.

    When I had white walls I had them out. It is hard to keep them clean, but looks great to do the extra elbow grease. I now have white letter tires and have those on the outside too.

    White letters out, but I don't work on keeping them looking good all the time. It's hard enough to keep the tires remotely clean when you live on a gravel driveway, plus I like going off road!

    Back in the 1990's for the most part I would always have the white lettering out, looked awesome on my two tone vehicles...75 ElCamino that was Red/White, also on my Blue/Gray 1989 S-10 Blazer Sport. Also my pewter 1999 Tahoe LT. But I preferred the black side out on my 1998 Black ZR2 S-10, 2000 Pewter ZR2 Blazer, and also my Black Z71 2005 Suburban as well as my 2003 Green Tahoe LT. So yeah, guess I am 50/50 on this subject, depends on the vehicle for me.
