I think the WK2 shouldn't have white letters showing on any tire/rim combo.
Some SUV's look great with it and others don't. I personally have Wrangler Silent Armors 245/70/17 on my WK2 just black like 604

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

I used to like to looks of white letters out, but I probably like black better now. The Silent Armors will look good black (had them previously). However, if you place the white letters out, it will be more off-road worthy -- at least according to Jeep (I paid >$100 for the white letters on my On/Off Road Tires according to my window sticker)

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

Here are a few more shots. Really happy in all respects in the little driving I have done so far on these tires.








Whitewalls were a photoshop

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

But doesn't it look weird seeing the white letters when you see the inside of the tire? It does on the Trail Hawk pix elsewhere here.

They won't be white for long being on the inside.

Looking good! I think I'm going to get some for the 20's I have on my Overland. I should be due before the winter.

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

Nice 604 and nlowell^. I went owl inside on my winter/trail Firestones, but have noticed both sets of tires are cupping to the outboard with 10k miles each, so may rotate them to opposing sides and go owl out.

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

I'm just going through the same dilemma with my new Pirelli Scorpion ATR 265/60R18 on OEM polished alloys. The shop delivered the wheels with white writing out (without asking) and I never really thought white writing had a place on the latest JGC. They have offered to turn them around for me as they didn't ask but now it has sort of grown on me a little... maybe... It looks tough compared to the 20's but... thought they could look a little plain just black.... what to do?
