Default New tires, letters in or out?

I am torn, my new 275/75-18 BFG ATKO2's came in today and will get mounted tomorrow. I have always had the letters out on past trucks (mostly because stock tires), but not sure which way to go on these. I am keeping the stock rims.

I kind of like the look of the letters out because the truck is white with black and chrome, but all black intrigues me as well.

What do all of you think?

On your truck I like the letters in. On my truck, the letters look better on the outside.

In. If you actually use the truck like a truck in mud and snow you stand a good change of wiping the letters off anyways. Mind you this is from jeeping off-road with the letters out. After a while they begin to look like poo.

Or if you have a wife and she likes to get close to the curbs........

You don't rub or wear the white off, it just gets dingy, hit it with a brillo pad and some white wall cleaner and they will shine again, the white is actually an entire part of the side wall. Technically the entire tire is white from the zinc oxide they use to improve traction and longevity, they have to add carbon black to the mix to make them black.

No truck looks good with white letters.

I am always a white letter IN guy.
