  3. I like them on my T. 54ABE6F0-0A33-41B3-935C-D3C5FE90CFBE.jpeg
     
  4. As stated, "it depends on the car". I had a set on my '51 Olds... 52.JPG

    But went with the narrow whites on my '56 Ford for a more sixties look...

    To be fair both were used fairly extensively in the 40s which brings up the question when did whitewalls appear?...perhaps they were around as long as the blackwalls.. I know way back the some were All White...

    Not a huge fan, although I've had several with WW's..it really depends on the car, and style you're after.

    Love WWW's on early rods and customs, and thin WW's on early 60's rods and customs.
    I even made faux WW's on my racing slicks.

    On the right car,I love them. Cool!
    On the wrong car,they look as fake BS as primer as a final finish.
