Style update: White letters on outside or inside?

Picking up tires next week. I'm leaning on white letters outside but would like input.

You can always color the white with a sharpie if you don't like the look

I went white letters out on my 96 Tacoma and they looked great til they got dirty, so went white inside on my 04 Rubi and they will look as good when they're worn out as they do now.

Depends on the look ya have for your Jeep, the blacked out stuff white in, but if your like me...a chrome fanatic...then white out.

You can get them shiny white with a SOS pad if they get dirty.

It's personal preference.

I think white out looks good, until you go off road or parallel park. After that they will probably look scuffed and/or dirty.

I have white out because tire store chose for me. They didn't ask what I wanted, and I didn't think to tell what I wanted.

I have had them in mud, but they still look good. However rocks, stumps on trails, or parallel parking will make them ugly soon.

Black out wouldn't look as dirty or scuffed.

Some tires with black out will start to show a white under layer and look kinda like white walls if you spend much time in the rocks.

I vote for display the OWL but my Jeep is white so I'm not unbiased!

if your jeep is blacked out anywhere i.e.. headlights, tint, taillights, decals, then u gotta go with white in. but if your jeep is sporty or chromed u can get away with white out. It will become a pain to clean after a while because hard brushes will tear the letters up but it's really personal preference. Ive seen both look really good!
