One of the nicest things about white letters is when you clean them. I use Westley'* Bleech White and a scrub brush. It really makes them look sharp. I also like the "Subtle but different." look. Everyone typically runs black walls.

I used to have a 92 GP SE w/continentals and colored the words w/red and it looked awsome.......I think it depends on color and maybe any contrasting color u might have on the car. BTW Karl.....i like the white lettering on yours.

Look at the totally chromed engines and gorgeous sport show cars, many with white lettered tires and mag wheels.
Yes, I agree. I should have been more clear. On classic muscle cars, raised whites all the way. On more modern sedans, no, it'* not for me.

Our 79 TA has raised whites and they look nice.
