These Firestone Dirt Track Ribbed front tires are sized at 400-12, perfect for the front of a vintage midget race car. Firestone built their brand racing on dirt and these classic dirt track tires have since become a favorite of hot rod builders everywhere. The racing heritage and vintage looks of these Firestone hot rod tires offer a unique look especially for 1920-1940s cars and trucks. Firestone Dirt Track ribbed front tires are a recreation of actual dirt track racing tires from the 1940s and '50s. Coker Tire Company produces these tires using a brand new mold, built from the original Firestone drawings. With many sizes to fit 15- to 19-inch wheels, there are lots of fitment options for traditional hot rods, rat rods and more! Firestone Dirt Track tires are also available in grooved rears in several sizes, giving builders and restorers options to get just the right stance. Firestone Vintage tires & Dirt Track tires are made in the USA, and they are DOT approved. All Dirt Track tires feature a bias ply construction, and offer the right stance for the perfect big and little combination. Dirt Track tires are only available in blackwall form, which is the perfect look for a sinister vintage hot rod.

Bias Ply Construction

Bias ply tire construction is a method that was used from the 1900's through the 1970's on passenger cars and light trucks. Bias ply tires feature ply cords that run at a 45 degree angle to the bead, and overlap in a crisscross pattern, depending on how many ply layers are used. This creates a strong tire, but bias ply tires have a tendency to follow breaks or ruts in the pavement. Bias ply tires are the most authentic choice for classic car restorations and traditional hot rod builds. Coker Tire offers a huge variety of bias ply tires for many applications.
