Yeah, I really want the white lettering out. Just don't think it is important enough to spend the $$$ on. When I get a new set they will definitely be mounted right.

IMO letters on the out side look good if it is a top brand tire.Good years BF Good Rich.Sorry I would not run Futura's with the white letters out.....
The only problem with running a 10 inch rim on the front is the extra weight of the tire along with the extra over hang from the off set can lead to premature front end part wear.

I do like that look better......

Didn't realize that, but the rims on there now weigh a lot less than the chrome rims. I couldn't believe the difference. So that's better. These are BF Goodrich's. If I decide to flip them I have to make sure the white would come clean anyway. From what I can tell the white is a bit worn off. So we will see. Definitely happy with the change.

i like good year eagle gt 2's for my white letter look..smile

but for front end wear thats true, its a good thing you took off the 20s dont get me wrong they look sweet but those would wear that front end out real fast.. 15x10 in front not as fast but quicker than normal..

and if you go to a tire shop to have them rotated, make sure the people know what there doing , lol long time ago a buddy of mine had a short bed pickup with tens on the back and eights on the front , a tire shop rotated them and put the tens on the front and the eights on the back lol we wondered why everyone was giving us funny looks lol

The white letters should come clean. I use a stiff briste brush and dip it in wet dirt to scrub tires. Out of all the cleaners dirt works best on a tire.lol go figure.

COMET and a scrub brush will get even the worse white letters clean.....
The white letters will NOT wear off they are built right into the side wall of the tire.Constant curb scrubbing can turn the white letters onto a jagged white wall.
The actual weight is not the issue.Think of the deep dish wheel like a pry bar.The farther the wheel hangs out from the center of the spindle the more leverage the weight of the tire wheel combo has..

DIRT....really......
Sorry I will put my comet up against your dirt any day....LOL

Rotation.....,If you took a truck to a tire store that was that freaking stupid. I really hope you did not return........
But then I have seen some so called "PRO's" do some pretty dumb things .......
