what does OWL mean?
 
By choosing ORA I, you have to change OWL tire instead of BSW
BSW is black side wall which is popular, what is OWL? White side wall?:confused:

Have the dealer dismount the tires and turn the white letters inside.

I'm not 100% on this, but doesn't OWL means OUTLINED White Letters? Instead of the block letters?

Traveler:confused:

That's my understanding also, but the other still holds...they're only on one side of the tire, and you simply flip them. Negotiate this in with the price. I would do the same.

Traveler:confused:

you are right. that is what wiki said, Outline White Lettering

Anyway, I dont like white letters on black tire.

Maybe we can try to keep BSW tires and get ORA I;)

it still means that there is a white letter facing outward LOL........ Usually one side is a blackwall and one is a whitewall so you can choose what youwant except on directional tires.

Re: what does OWL mean?
 
That will work even with directional tires...you just move them to the other side!!! :p
