I liked the white lettering with your color package. I would have suggested black,
but your XK is red with the aluminum wheels.

But, like the man said, "I dont chew my 'baccy twicet."
or Do what you like!

Cool

Alright, back from the tire place. Waited the 2 1/2 hr like normal BS. I had told the guy that I wanted black, but he didn't tell the installer, so the installer thought that he would just do what he thought looked good. SO, i have white lettering. The guy came out and said "o wait didn't you want black lettering?"

Didn't want to wait another hr, so he gave me 20% off install and I drove off.


THESE TIRES ARE AMAZING! I love the way they look and drive. Raised the commander another inch or so and drives perfect. You do hear and feel the hum of the tires, but not bad at all.

Here is some before and after.

BEFORE






AFTER






Might need some wheel spacers for extra look, but drive fine with no rub.
