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. 

Ensign Vintage Tires

Ensign produces quality tires in popular sizes for Veteran automobiles and motorcycles. Fitments range from 1920s through the 1970s and many of Ensigns design are authorized replacements for popular Dunlop designs.
