American Classic Radial | Low Profile | Wide Whitewall



Low Profile Whitewall Tires

Whitewall tires are an iconic piece of American automotive history. We all remember those classic huge three-inch wide whitewalls, sometimes even wider, back in the day! Since then, tires with a wide whitewall have been popular for classic car restorations as well as hot rod and custom builds. Coker Tire Company offers these American Classic radial Low Profile Whitewall tires with a selection of sizes and whitewall widths for more modern fitments! With sizes to fit 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheels, these tires offer the right look for your classic car, thanks to the white sidewall and stylish tread pattern. The whitewall is built into the mold from the beginning, so it is a true whitewall tire that will stand uo to the test of time. These modern fitment American Classic whitewall tires for sale are available online and are made in the USA. They are DOT and ECE (European Community) approved and covered by Coker Tire Company's Life of the Tread warranty.

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.

Radial Tire Construction

Radial tires were first introduced by Michelin in the 1950's, and by the mid 1970's, all American cars came from the factory with radial tires. Radial tire construction means that the tire's ply layers are positioned at a 90 degree angle to the bead. This allows the tire to flex and glide over bumps and breaks in the road. Radial tires provide a smoother ride and longer tread life than bias ply tires. We offer wide whitewall radial tires, as well as narrow whitewalls, redlines, gold lines and high performance radial tires. 

American Classic Tires for Collector Cars

Our line of American Classic radial tires includes P-metric radials (such as 235/75R15) and our famous "bias look radial" (such as 670R15). We offer American Classic radial tires in wide whitewall, narrow whitewall, and black sidewall in select sizes, developed specifically for 1940's, 1950's and 1960's classic cars. These tires feature a classic tread design and a beautiful sidewall that's built into the tire from day one of production.

I am afraid that we do not offer the American Classic in that size. Also, we do not have a source for any tire in that size.
