Keeping them clean is a pain and they'll quickly start looking worn.

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

I could see that but I am meticulous...I know, I know...it's a Jeep. But how does it look?

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

Meticulous wont help them from getting worn and tattered over time.
I personally wouldn't do it but it's your Jeep.

White lettered tires are sort of 1990s at best. Some makers refuse to make them particularly on low profile tires because the buried white layer makes the sidewall weaker. If I recall they originally came out about the same time as red lettering or those stripes in the tread that leave colored streakmarks.

Having said all that, its your jeep. I personally think it would look better with a Vader motif...

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

Sos pad or scrotchbrite will bring them right back to new when they get curbed or just dirty..... looks good.

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

white letter tires / peoples opinions are like in politics, many love or hate strongly and others don't care... about any forum has running threads but me> NO! don't do it!
Aside from my dislike of lettering, I think it takes away from the overall theme of the altitude being monotone and sleek. If you do, put on a bunch of bumper stickers to blend it all in

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

That's a great idea. My first bumper sticker will be, "my other car is a Shelby GT350"

Re: White Letters on Altitude?

White letters are only acceptable on a supercar! A true supercar meaning 918 (entry level) and up. Every time I think trends cannot possible get any worse, people amaze me!

If you want to be really earth shattering, put black letters on your tires! People won't know what hit them!!!
