    If you're a typical jeep owner and your jeep will never be off road, or every once in a while visit someone with a dirt/gravel driveway, you could install them white side out. If you're like me and use the jeep off road, then you won't be happy with how your white raised lettering will look after one time out.

    Also, if you live in an area where you parallel park next to curbs, the white lettering will look bad in a very short time.

      I can parallel park without polishing the curb but my wife can't go through a drive through without polishing the curbs therefore, the white lettering is in on her Durango.

        I like the white letter look but my current truck has blackwalls and I havent missed cleaning the WL at all.

        Now, if you want a GREAT cleaner for whitewalls, engines, and anything else, go to Dollar Tree in the cleaner section and pick up some stuff called AWESOME. It comes in a semi-clear bottle with red lettering. This stuff is, well, AWESOME!!

        I have been using it for years and I buy it 20 bottles at a time when I go to get it because I keep plenty on hand. Everyone I have recommended it to loves it.

        If you have whitewalls or white letters, you spray it on and you can see the dirt dissolving.

        I was told Wal-Mart carries it too but I havent verified that yet.

          Haven't installed yet, but sticking with black out. It'll look better and I won't have to worry about dirty white letters.

                Yeah, on that the white letters would set it off. I have them in on our black Durango but the wheels are not blacked out.

                    I don't scrape my Jeep's tires on curbs and I wash the dirt and crud off the tires. Don't mud so most of the dirt ends up in the wells rather than on the tires. Personally crappy looking white letters bothers me less than looking under a vehicle and seeing white letters. Not everyone's like that though.

                    I never had stock tires on it. Started with 245/70/16s. Then 255/75/17s. (Wrangler take-offs) Now 265/70/17s. It sees about 10k a year. Finally started using synthetic before I put the 255s on. Good thing with the miles it racks up.

                      Pictures? What kind of Jeep do you have?
                      Anyways, so far I've put on 100 miles or so and the Jeep rides nice. Not much more road noise, but it drives straight as can be. I'm sure the alignment helped, too.
