When I had the aluminum rims I had the white letters on the outside.

When I switched to the ralley rims I had them mounted so the white letters were on the inside.

Just my preference. I like the look.
I hope your new Firestones "feel" good when you hit the road.
 
P.S. Which size did you go with?

On the 70 I have 245/60/15's.
Even though I took off 255's the new BFG's were just too big for the front wheel well and I went down to the 245's.
The 1975 may have a bigger wheel well, that I dont know.

The 73 has 225/70/15's.
The tires on the 70, (245/60's) look much better.

Hope that adds to the confusion!
