Avon Tourist bias ply tires features a classic tread pattern and a smooth black sidewall, for use on many vintage sports cars and other classics. This 550-16 bias ply tire is a tube type design. We always suggest replacing tubes and/or rim strips when you replace the tires on your collector car.

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. 

Avon Tires for Classic Sports Cars

Avon tires are an authentic choice for vintage European sports cars and classic cars from the 1940's through the 1970's. Our selection of Avon tires includes bias ply and radial construction, offering a wide variety of OE and high performance fitments. Many Avon tires are speed rated, and built with performance and safety in mind. Whether you're building a vintage sports car, luxury car or even a classic 4x4, we have the right Avon tire for your application.
