White Letters Facing Out or In ?
« on: February 17, 2023, 10:55:39 AM »
I'm going for the "Old School Look" on the '73 with Rally Wheels. 

White letters showing should work best, right?

Thanks

Letters out are surely OS.

I prefer black.  8)

Unless the letters say "CHEAP TIRE" then white letter out looks pretty slick

Depends on the brand of tire. BFG Radial TAs look good with white letters out, but a cheap/no-name brand might look odd.

Also things like vehicle and wheel color might change things as well.

Tires are new BF Goodrich T/As

Excellent - y'all are right!

I'm going with White Letters out.

Thanks
