If your going for the blackout look then go in. I like them in on most trucks but there are a few trucks that can pull off white letters out.

White letters belong out on a truck, in on a car IMO.

im getting tires this weekend that are already mounted on new wheels and they have blackwalls out and it will be switched ASAP

Have one mounted. Let it sit next to your truck. Flip it to see which way you like it.

when my truck was stock, it had the white letters out. I got two new ones in the front that didn't match so I had them turned in... always like white letters out. Wish my tires now were out... definitely will be when I get some duratracs.

black wall is the only way to go. only time letters out would be if youre going mega big. like swamp buggy size. or mud bog tires to brag. other than that black wall

35 mts compared to 33 ats, and the outside lip of the wheel is sanded down. But you get the idea

In vs. Out

I think if you are going for the blackout look with black rims they should go in...I prefer them to be out any other time

Depends on the brand of tire, but I prefer white letters out. Like Scott said, out on trucks and blackwalls on cars looks better.

Good Choice!

I think that they should pretty much always be out on a truck, in on a car, and out on a muscle car
