Title: 1937 -60 Tires
Post by: Steve Rinaldo on May 28, 2015, 04:57:55 PM
Gentlemen:

I am about to replace the ancient tires on my 1937 60 series sedan. I have some questions Here that I'm sure you guys can answer. Here goes:

1. Did the car come with whitewalls?

2 Radials or Bias ply?

3. Tubes with flaps or tubeless?

4. Normal inflation PSI.?

I know this is a lot but I have no experience with tires in this car. Thanks, Steve.

I presume your asking about originally?

Whitewalls were an option.
Radial tyres were in their infancy and not available on automobiles in 37.
No tubeless tyres then either.
Around 28psi

Steve also radial tires have better handling  they don't fallow the road problems, smooth ride,easier to steer,no tubes required. just a thought..p foster
