Coker Tire introduced the Coker Classic wide whitewall radial in 1995, so it is a well-established product line with more than 20 years of research and development. Coker Classic radial tires are DOT and ECE approved and are the perfect replacement for original bias ply tires.
Additionally, Coker Tire offers other blackwall radial tires in popular 6.00R16 sizing. Excelsior Stahl Sport radial tires offer the vintage “tall and skinny” profile of a bias ply tire, but feature the safety, ride quality and tread life of a modern radial. Excelsior Stahl Sport Radial tires are available to fit many 16-inch wheels, as well as larger diameters for other pre-WWII applications.
Other 600R16 fitments include a Michelin Pilote X radial tire, and a popular tire size conversion for European automobiles is 185R16, which is available in our Firestone, Vredestein, and Michelin lines. There is not currently a P-metric radial tire that offers exact sizing to original 600-16 tires, so tire size comparison is tough to nail down.
In conclusion, Coker Tire has it covered if you need a 600-16 tire for your classic automobile. Whether you want bias ply or radial, whitewall or blackwall, Coker Tire offers several brands and price points to suit your needs. And with decades of experience in whitewall tires, Coker Tire can keep your classic car or hot rod on the road with reliable, authentic and reasonably priced 600-16 tires.
