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.
