WIDE Whitewall Tires??
« on: January 17, 2011, 07:59:16 PM »
I'm looking for a set of wide whites for my 1960 6229K.. I would like a whitewall diameter of more than 3 1/2 inches but I'm not sure if I can get that in a 235/75/15 radial? any help would be appreciated! thanks!

Diamond Back would have those and I think all theirs are radials.

Coker would be another place to look, not sure about the radials though from them.

Most tire shops deal with both.

80 Eldo Diesel

And other assorted stuff I keep buying for some reason

Another vote of confidence for Diamond Back Radials. 

I've run them on my 1952 Fleetwood Imperial Limousine since I bought the car.  They look great, ride well, and offer the added safety of radial tires.  The owner of the company is knowledgeable and friendly.

I'm in the process of looking for a set for my '57 Series 75 Limo as well.  I've looked at others but keep going back to the Diamondback tires.  Their website explains how the white wall is attached to any tire, it's pretty interesting.  I just like the idea of getting a current "name brand" tire with the whitewall desired.
