Default RWL rear tires vs blackwall front

Donít want to make a Day 2 faux pas. I have raised white letter L60X15s out back. But my front runners are blackwall. Is this Ok? I want the RWL look, itís so 70ís.
A)Should I paint the front tire letters ?
B)Reverse the back tires to all black?
C) the front runners have a thin whitewall on one pair. Soooo, run the whitewall?
Most front runners are blackwall. A few exceptions found looking through the vast amount of reference pictures the site offers. Most notable, the Stone, Woods, Cooke Olds powered Willys
I had just planned to run blackwall front, RWL rear. Will that bring the Day 2 police to my doorstep?

From my memory it was very common to face the rear white letters outward and leave the fronts in, if they even had white letters. In my case it was because I spent the money on the rears and usually just found some cheap front runners, usually oem tires. I do the same thing today on a couple cars, the only thing different is the cost of the front tires.

Great question.
I would go white letters facing out in the back, turning them in would be day three.
Up front don't paint the tires just run black wall out, unless you have matching tires or early front runners with white lettering.

Resurrecting this thread.
Got a pair of GY 6.70x15 Custom Super Cushion 4 ply “pizza cutters”. I believe these are Coker remakes. Anyway, they are whitewall, like the 1” type. I have looked through many , many pictures on this site and only find about 6 cars that had whitewalls on the front. Kinda taboo? What would YOU do?
1) blackwall out?
2) whitewall out?
3) blackwall out and paint whitewall black, so not seen under car?

Blackwall out is what I'd do. With a car named Ratty Rat, I'd let the whitewalls show -fits the theme
