Firestone | 1 Inch Whitewall | 640-15

This is an authentic classic Firestone 1 inch whitewall 640-15 bias ply tire. 6.40-15 tires are common on late fifties and sixties imports as well as select forties and fifties Willys and Studebaker models. We also see these used on the front of gassers and nostalgia drag cars for a cool tall and skinny front runner tire. They're DOT and ECE (European Community) approved where applicable. These tires are made in original molds to maintain authenticity and backed by our life of the tread warranty. Firestone offers the world's best selling line of vintage bias ply tires, and Firestone Deluxe Champion quality and reliability is legendary. Proudly made in the USA!

Genuine Narrow Whitewall Tire

This product features a genuine narrow 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. When we reference "narrow whitewall" tires, we typically mean a whitewall that measures less than two inches, but it can also mean a whitewall that does not reach all the way into the bead. Narrow whitewall tires are popular for many cars built in 1960's all the way through the 1990's.

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.

Original to a 1963 corvette 640 15 1 inch ww
By paul mallon on August 15, 2019

Hi there, The original size would have been a 670-15, but the 640 can be used as a spare since most 670's do not fit the Corvettes spare compartment. Thanks,
