American Classic Radial | 3/4 Inch Whitewall | 165R15




We all remember well the classic cars from the sixties that had narrow whitewalls, as auto manufacturers began decreasing the width of the whitewall in the late 1950s and early '60s. Since then, narrow whitewall tires have been very popular. These 165R15 radial tires offer the right look for your classic car, thanks to the tall sidewall and tread pattern. The 3/4 inch whitewall is built into the mold from the very first step, so it is a genuine whitewall tire that will hold up well over time. American Classic tires are made in the USA and they are DOT and ECE (European Community) approved and covered by Coker Tire Company's Life of the Tread warranty. Please note that dimensions listed (tread width, section width and overall diameter) are non-scientific and based on an inflated tire, mounted to a wheel. Dimensions may vary due to rim width and inflation pressure.

My 1979 VW convertible has Michelin 165 SR 15 ZX 1/4" whitewalls with 23K actual miles. Was this the OEM tire on 1979 super beetle convertible?
By Chris Jenkins on July 12, 2016

While that tire is of the correct size, it is not possible for us to say whether that tire was on the vehicle from the factory without the factory build sheet.

I have 79 super beetle with tires that are 165SR15ZX. Is this 165R15 the same tire. If not, Do u have the SR in a whitewall?
By Your Name (optional) on October 02, 2016

Yes, this tire is compatible, and is an "S" speed rated radial, the "S" is simply not stated in the tire size.
