White Letters In or Out?

I'm going to have BFG A/T's installed next week. Should I put the white lettering in or out? I have a white truck and I'm using MT Classic II style wheels. I know this is pretty much personal preference, but I can't decide and just wanted to see what other people think. So what'd you do on your truck?

I would say white out. The thing is, most people with white lettering on their tires never keep them white; they're always black, brown, or orange. If you put the white out, spray some Tilex Soap Scum bathroom cleaner on them when you wash them and they will be just like new. That's what i did for my stock tires and they were perfect all the time. Just don't go crazy and get it on your rims or they'll cloud up and look hazy.

I personally hate white out. Probably because of the color of my truck.

my personal opinion is white letters out on aggressive off road tires, black letters out on anything else.

unless of course youre driving a race car, in which case i say yellow goodyears out

when it all boils down, its like you said: personal preference. who cares what other people think as long as you like it?

I have the black walls out on my truck and I like the look of it. I do have a black truck though. On a white truck, I think I would do the white walls out. How big are the tires your getting? I like white walls on big tires, but on smaller tires, just makes them look even smaller.
