Firestone Indy Tire | 800-18

Coker Tire Company used original development drawings to re-create these classic 800-18 Firestone Indy Vintage Race tires. This is an authentic rear tire for Indy cars, but it can also be used on hot rods, and other types of vintage race car restorations. This specific tire features a half tread design, which was the standard tire used from the 1950's until 1963. These Half Tread tires also look cool on race-inspired hot rods. These Firestone Indy tires come in blackwall form, but paint markers are available, so you can paint the letters for the authentic look. These tires are made in the USA, and they feature a four ply nylon construction. Mount these to a set of magnesium Halibrand 6 pin knock off or spline drive wheels, and you'll have a winning combination!

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.
