Looking into buying a set, but would prefer not to have the white raised letters. I know I could mount them inside....but would rather not.

What size are you wanting. They make them in blackwall in the 245, and 235/85, and other dually sizes. The 265's are white letter I think.

From what I was told, white wall only. I mounted them to the inside, and never even see them.

I did the same thing, no option for a blackwall only in 265 from what I was told just a couple of weeks ago.

I hope you like iceskates. These tires are the biggest pos ever made. Yea they wear awesome, but the wet traction is ridiculous. Unless you are going to tow lots of miles in absoultley no water or snow, then I suppose they'll do you fine.

I'm going with 265's this time around, so I guess I get the White raised. Looking for add'l opinions on the wet/snow handling. Are we talking worse than the stock tires? Read the reviews on tirerack.com and you would think they are the greatest ever.

They wear great, fair on wet roads, terrible traction in snow. I went to Revos, much much better, now Goodyear Silent Armor, even better.

I ran them in 33x12.50x15 size on a 4x4 diesel blazer for years, wore great and never had a traction problem.
mud snow ice etc.
they actually surprised me in the mud, pulled alot of all terrain forklifts out while I was runnign them.
But dad runs the revos on his truck, and they do work better in snow the the LTX
