Old-style, New Radial Tires

Found this in the paper.
Coker Tire manufactures tires that look like what your GTO or Model A wore but are modern radials.

Re: Old-style, New Radial Tires

No kidding, these have been around forever. I have a set of 'em on my '59 Bel Air; they're probably 15 or so years old now. But they're nice!

Re: Old-style, New Radial Tires

Did you know that fifteen year old tyres are probably rotten?

Re: Old-style, New Radial Tires

I don't care, that's what spares are for. Wait, the spare is 42 years old... still holds air though!

Re: Old-style, New Radial Tires

lol agreed, our trailer still has its 1982 tires,

my chevette still has its origional spare from 1980, it had bald tires prolly from 89 or 90 on it up until 2 years ago(would still be driving on them if it werent for my dumb self hitting the stake in the yard and poking the sidewall haha)

my s10 had its factory tires up until about 3 years ago (its a 95) haha

if the tire still holds air, isnt lumpy, belts aren't poking thru im driving on em.

i think that whole "tires over 8 years are bad" or whatever the year is crap.
