Vintage Race Tires | Half Tread Tires Coker Tire Company used original development drawings to re-create these classic Firestone Indy Vintage Race tires. This specific tire features a half tread design, which was the standard tire used from the 1950's until 1963. These Half Tread tires also look cool on race-inspired hot rods. These Firestone Indy tires come in blackwall form, but paint markers are available, so you can paint the letters for the authentic look. These tires are made in the USA, and they feature a four ply nylon construction. Mount these to a set of magnesium Halibrand 6 pin knock off or spline drive wheels, and you'll have a winning combination!
