    I like them. That was the way most were made although whitewall and blackwall on some years were available. I got the BF Goodrich because the letter size was close to the original Goodyears. It's really up to what you like though.

    I like the raised white lettering.

    Same here..

    RWL are there to be shown. And i do think they go with the C3 well..
    If you look at the original catalog, they show them too..

    My L81 was born with rwl, so she still wears them. My other car had them and I went black walls with new tires, but I will try to get those tire letter kits they sell.

    I have Cooper Cobra's on mine, and I like the raised white letters. They complement the car well in my opinion, and reminds me of days gone by.
