I have a stupid question and will probably be flamed forever, but here
goes. I am in the need for some tires and I plan to go with either
the Dunlop M/Ts or the BFG M/Ts (285/75/R16) for my 2000 basically
stock silverado ext cab z71. I have in the past put the white tire
lettering on the outside (visible) on other vehicles and it looked
really sharp. Unfortunately, it was a smaller truck and the look
seemed to 'fit.' So what do you guys do? White lettering in or out
on your full size P/Us?
Which looks better to you?
My Isuzu Bighorn (Trooper in the USA, and yes I know it's not a chev, Does
GM count?) has Goodyear Wrangler A/Ts with the white lettering out. soon to
get Kumhos, also with the white lettering out.
i subscribed when my kid left me his lil blazer with a leaking remote
the folks here were so cool that i just sort of hang here for the
(a lot of the discussion in these groups is pretty generic)
Yes and no. Like there are some years I wouldn't buy a dodge, or ford, and
since I like chevy I just put up with those problem years, before they
adopted japanese quality control measures. Now I'd have to say, who's looks
do you like? I think they all look the same now. :-)
As far as looks alone, the '94-'01 Dodge is my favorite followed by the '00
bodystyle Chevy/GMC and the Superduty Ford. The ugliest has to be the F-150
and the new Dodges followed by the new Chevy/GMC with those cute little
slanted headlights. I imagine this will get a lot of shit rolling! <BG> A
good friend of mine would not be seen in anything other than a Ford, most of
my family drives Chevy and I have my Dodge. All have their good points and
bad. All I can say is that they all come sucking up to me when it snows and
I put the blade on!! <VBG>
I like the old style ('85 to '90 square lights) Isuzu Bighorns (troopers in
US), they have a nice solid square look, but aren't as big and overdone as
the XXXL size USA trucks.
just my two pence
i've always like the older suburban.. when they were a truck, not an
not the best looking thing around (we used to call them water
buffalos) but they got the job done when a 4x4 pickup wouldn't carry
what you needed and a station wagon couldn't handle the terrain..
When I put the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's on my last truck I had them put
on white lettering out..
There is a dodge (eww) that lives a few blocks from me with the same tires,
and his are installed with the white lettering in.. I personally like the
look of them out.. if yer gonna spend all that money on tires.. you mine as
well let people know what you got.. lol :)

Agreed. Doesn't the z71 sit pretty high above the tires? I think there's
a good chance you'll be able to see lettering at one angle or another if
you tuck 'em in.
My neighbor's z71 has white letters facing out.. it didn't strike me as
unappealing.. but at the same time I often wear grey and brown to work, so
whadda I know? :-)
