Collectible vehicles aren’t quite as collectible when they don’t have the right tires on them, so Coker Tire Company strives to provide car enthusiasts of all ages with the appropriate tires for their machine. Part of the process was bringing back discontinued tires, by using the original molds from various companies, and Firestone is the prominent bias ply tire in the immense Coker product line.
