Those are dirty, did someone go mudding in them before they sold them to you? Toss 'em on the Eagles.

15x8 Eagles? They'll be fine. I have 35x12.5x15 on my Mickey Thompson Classic II's which are very similar.

mine gets washed once a week if that any more. main reason for the reason i hate cleaning them is the bleach white stains/eats my aluminum wheels then i have to polish them again. so i just would rather have nice wheels and black wall out on the tires.

zach just some stuff like comet or ajax and a bruch. keep the brush and tire wet n looks just as good n lot easier. dont have to worry bout it ruining the rims or anything.

back on topic: black letters in and same for u lol...use some comet or something like that with a bruch and should come off fairly easy. thats how i do it at work with the blue crap on the letters.
