Avon Turbospeed | Whitewall | 235/65VR16 103V

The Avon Turbospeed product line features speed rated tires for classic cars. This example is a 235/65VR16, a V rated tire with safe service up to 149 miles per hour. It features a pinstripe whitewall for vintage looks, and a classic style tread pattern.

Pinstripe Whitewall

As wide whitewalls were phased out, the width of the whitewalls continued to shrink until it got down to 3/8-inch. These very narrow whitewalls are often called pinstripe whitewalls or pin whites. By the late 1960's, pinstripe whitewalls became common options on cars like the Corvette, and continued to be popular on full sizes classics, like Lincoln Continental and Cadillacs. The full size cars also saw variations of pinstripe whitewalls, which included dual whitewalls, and a combination of narrow and wide whitewalls.

V Speed Rating

V Speed Rated: Up to 149 mph (240 km/h). Often required OE for higher performance trim level automobiles.
