Hi, When searching for tires I often encounter those terms "blackwall" and "whitewall". What do they mean and what's the difference ? tia

Decoration...the 'whitewalls' have a thin white stripe that goes around the sidewall of the tire (a far cry from the truly large white sidewalls that were popular years ago). Not too many cars sport whitewalls anymore, but I have to admit I like them! If I had a Caddy or Lincoln I think I would go for it [Smile]
