H Speed Rated American Classic Whitewall Tires

Remember the fabulous cars from the fifties that had upwards of three-inch wide whitewalls, sometimes even bigger? Those stylish tires with wide whitewalls have been extremely popular for classic car restorations as well as hot rod and custom builds ever since. Coker Tire Company offers these radial American Classic Whitewall tires with a great selection of sizes and whitewall widths up to 3-1/8 inches! Sizes to fit 14-, 15- and 16-inch wheels, these tires offer the right look for your classic car, complete with a tall sidewall and stylish tread pattern. Sizing is perfect for American full size cars, such as Impala, Galaxie and other popular makes and models, such as Cadillac and Lincoln. The wide whitewall is built into the mold from day one, so it is a true whitewall tire that will stand the test of time. Coker American Classic tires are made in the USA and 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.

Can you get this tire (235/75/14) with a wider white wall? Looking for a tire with a 3" plus wide white wall with close to a 28" diameter.
By Brian on May 28, 2018

This size is not available with a wider white wall I am afraid. This is the only tire we offer within the size requirements you need that features a wide white wall as shown.
