    I'm looking to buy some tires for my truck and I want the rims painted a creamy white color. The question is: should I buy whitewalls or blackwalls? I'm afraid that will be too much white, but am not sure.

    Does anyone out there have this combination? I would like to see pics if you have them.

    Thanks,

    Ant

    Would you buy radials or bias?

    If you're going with creme colored wheels, go blackwall. Bias ply, unless it's a street rod . . . .
     
  9. Bias Blackwalls definitely. Will be to much white with white walls if you run the color you will have on the rims and blackwalls suits trucks really nice.

    Radials have in my world no good place on an old car. Off course they improve handling but it's like putting sneakers on the prom queen instead of high heels (get my point?)

    That's what I was thinking, but just wanted to make sure.
     
  11. I'd vote black too depending on the truck color

    mine are faux www
    sanded wider from a skinny one

    and a free blackwall comparison

    LowKat thanks for the pic. I think you're right balckwalls look better.
     
  13. All I know is I'm running the WWW's I bought from you earlier on my 46

    Already got them mounted this afternoon


    But in my opinion since your wheel color is a lighter color I'd say black wall

    I wanted WWW's until I painted my steelies cream. Now I really like the blackwalls and you can save $$$ at the same time....:)
