Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

I guess I was highly influenced by the Fire Trucks I saw in parades as a boy. They were clean, shiny, had a deep rumble that shook the pavement and semi-gloss white letter tires. All my vehicles since 1968 except my GC have had white letter or WOL tires. All have had a low rumble to the exhaust and a clean, shiny finish, including the GC. I'll probably get WOLs for it when I replace the Forteras. Maybe some Power Sticks, too.

Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

I hated the days of white lettering tires putting the tire shine on them and keeping the letters clean.

Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

Did you pull the trigger on the silent armors? I'm thinking about a set as well. Curious as to what size you got? How about a picture?

Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

Hey 604, Boohyah is Right!

I now might have to change my mind after seeing that...

Wow, be sure to get some curb feelers to protect those ww's!!

And while your at it, why not a suicide knob for the SRT wheel? Oh yeah, that's right you got rid of the interior wood... OK, Forget it!

Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

Ended up with 265/65/18 Silent Armours with the black letters out. First impressions are real good but they scuffed up all 4 of my wheels during install which sucks. It's a well known chain tire shop so I'm hoping they will make it right. Here's one quick pic, ill try to take a couple more tomorrow.



bigjgcfan: lol the suicide knob on the SRT wheel would be excellent. You think the moose test is bad?... crank that bad boy twice and the WK2 would spin/flip so hard you'd go back in time.

Re: Getting new tires... white letters out or in?!?

OK... Now, you got me really wondering what's going on?


First you have 3" white walls...

Now you've got new S/A black walls w/ scuffed rims... What's next?

How about you get that well known chain tire shop to make it right with some 26's w/ spinners?


Oh by the way, You might really have something there for a new Back to the Future movie... Lose the DeLorean & get a JGC with a SRT suicide spinner capable of generating 1.21 gigawatts!!
