This Coker Classic 550R16 wide whitewall tire features a 2.75 inch wide whitewall. The 550-16 sizing is authentic for many European sports cars, such as 1956 through 1966 A.C., 1951 through 1959 Jensen and more. They are also authentic for American cars, such as 1937 through 1940 Fords with the V8-60 engine, 1933 through 1941 Willys and more. The 550R16 is also a popular choice for the front of hot rods, as it is a little smaller than stock. They're fully backed by our life of the tread warranty and DOT and ECE (European Union) approved. Actual tread design may be different from image in some sizes.

Genuine Wide Whitewall Tire

This product features a genuine wide whitewall sidewall style. This means that the bright white rubber is added directly to the tire sidewall during initial construction of the carcass, resulting in a truly integrated, high-quality product after vulcanization. Wide whitewall tires were a very popular choice from the 1930's through the end of the 1950's, and were eventually phased out of mainstream production by 1962. Originally, wide whitewall tires featured a bias ply construction, but now Coker Tire offers them in original style bias ply and modern radial construction.

Bias Look Radial Tire

The term "bias look radial" is something that Coker Tire created when we introduced the American Classic bias look radial product line. This means the tire has the appearance and the sizing profiles of a vintage bias ply tire, with modern radial construction. This provides an original look with a smooth ride and longer tread life, compared to bias ply tires. We offer bias look radial tires for vehicles ranging from the 1920's through the 1970's.

Coker Classic Brand Collector Vehicle Tires

Coker Tire was founded in 1958 and many years of our history has been focused on supplying the collector vehicle market with authentic tires. Coker Classic is our house brand, which is a favorite among car restorers and enthusiasts around the world. We were the first to develop the wide whitewall radial, and it's still one of our most popular product lines to this day. Coker Classic tires are offered in both bias ply and radial construction, using modern materials to ensure proper fitment and handling for your collector vehicle.

Please Note

  • Bias Look Radial tires feature genuine radial tire construction with bias ply tire size, profile and styling. These tires are built in brand new molds using modern materials and tooling. Typically the sizing is the same as their Bias Ply equivalents with the addition of 'R' in the size value. 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. Please note Chemical Guys Tire and Rubber Cleaner and Adams Polish Tire shine has been linked to Whitewall browning and should not be used. We recommend using our line of tire care products.

Question:
I want to order Coker Classic | 2 3/4 Inch Whitewall | 550R16. Since you offer two radial tube options, how do I pick the correct one? 1953 Sunbeam Alpine MkI
By Jim Pohl on April 25, 2019
Answer:

This will depend on the valve stem hole in your wheel. If it is 3/8" in diameter, select the TR13 stem tube. If it is 5/8" in diameter, select the TR15 stem tube.
