Question Which look better with styled wheels: White sidewall or Raised white letter tires?

Which do you think look better with the 1968 styled wheels?

Raised white letters or blackwall. Just say no to white walls!

Funny, we just finished a thread like this over in the Cougar room down the hall.

Raise white letters with styled steel wheels.

White walls go best with 70 series tires and deluxe hub caps. IMHO.

We just re-installed a set of factory chrome GT wheels on our car with a set of B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A's and opted for the "stealth" look. Blackwalls out, no white letters showing ...

A "Sleeper" ... or do you think the stripes give it away?

I vote black no white letters too

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.
