Please Note

  • Tire mounted on wheel for demonstration purposes only. Wheel and other accessories are not included. 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. From the Manufacturer: Tires exposed to temperatures of 20 degrees F (-7 degrees C) or lower must be permitted to gradually return to temperatures of at least 40 degrees F (5 degrees C) for at least 24 hours before they are flexed in any manner, such as by adjusting inflation pressures, mounting them on wheels, or using them to support, roll or drive a vehicle. Flexing of the specialized rubber compounds used in Grand Touring Summer tires during cold-weather use can result in irreversible compound cracking. While compound cracking is not a warrantable condition because it occurs as the result of improper use or storage, tires exhibiting compound cracking must be replaced.

On wire wheels, do you recommend a rim liner? How about a dry lube like talcum powder between tube and tire?
By Jerome Murphy on August 26, 2018

We do recommend a liner. For 15" tires, either a high temp PVC tape, or an old tube will work to wrap the rim and protect the tube from the spoke ends. Dry lube like talcum powder is always a good idea to avoid pinching when mounting the tire.
