Ok, stay with blackwalls or raised white letter tires? Pic.

I need to get some new tires on the ole' girl, but can't decide which way to go. Thoughts? Thanks.

I might stick with black out on yours. Personally i like white letter out but it depends on the color of wheels and truck.

The way I drive, I'd probably have the white letters scuffed off the right side in a matter of weeks from bonking into curbs.

One tire guy did have some good advice and it makes sense.......he said get rid of the longer valve stems that are currently on the truck since when you're out wheelin' it, if you bump into anything, you could possibley tear off the valve stems. Stick with the shorter ones.

Edit to add.........one would think that I could figure this out on my own. Man, common sense sometimes goes a long way. I wouldn't have picked up on this unless someone had told me. You guys probably already knew this, but just in case, there it is for what it is.

This is entirely up to you, i prefer all black...no white letters. It's a more rugged look. Your first gen looks great just the way it is.

Big picture here. I would like to take the running boards off of it, but, I don't want to take the chance of a stone coming up and hitting the paint.
