Default Tires, whitewall, Blackwall or RWL?

When I bought my Bonneville, (our second one) came with some faded whitewall tires. Wheels are 14" with hubcaps so I wasnt too obsessed over tires.

Tonight, I had 2 new tires installed, just Wal Mart specials, since I am still "stylin" on the 14" skinnys with hubcaps. Didnt specify how I wanted them mounted, just dropped off and left. Picked the car up and GOOD GRIEF, forgot what new whitewall tires look like LOL. Don't care for it either. I gotta find some silvercrosslace or something when I get the extra cash.

well, They didnt ask and I didnt think to ask, The old whitewalls kinda blended in with the black part LOL. Then when I pick the car up, it was dark, got out and walked away, turned back for a second and the outside lights were making the whitewalls look like a beacon! No I don't really like it and rims (factory 15s or 16s are on the "someday, maybe, if I get to it list" I am just going to have to ignore the way it looks for now LOL. or drop a few bucks and get em turned around.

I've always liked RWL, or ROWL. But then again, my vehicles have always had enough sidewall for it.
