We'll be buying "Jeanette" - 1955 Fireflite - new shoes before Spring. We want a nice wide white wall. We're interested in your suggestions and recommendations.

Hi Jack -

Do you own that yellowish 55 Fireflite ?

Jack,

I hope you are considering radial WWW tires. On my '55s from the past, after switching to the radials, I don't think I would ever go back to a bias ply tire.

Either way, a couple of companies come to mind...

Coker Tire, but there have been mixed reviews on their radial WWW tires over the years but I did own some that were fine.

Diamond Back Tires, located in South Carolina.. have not heard anything bad about their products.

I am sure there are others, but these I have either used or know people that have used them.

See you in about 6 weeks!

Dean

Thanks, Dean! Congrats on the new "baby"! :)
We are considering Diamond Backs and American Classics.
See you soon!

I have American Classics on two of my cars. Very happy with them.

Thanks Ron! Those American Classics are good looking. Glad to hear you're happy with them.
