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.

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.

What is the recommendation for balancing on rim after tire is mounted?
By Norm Gannon on July 11, 2018

We suggest you have a shop with a Hunter computer balancing machine mount up the wheel on the lug holes, not the center hole. It should not be road force balanced. The machine will find any high and low spots in the tire and rim, allowing the tech to move the tire on the wheel to cancel them out (this is called indexing).

By Esko Ahola on February 20, 2019

Thanks for contacting us, Esko! Here is what we have for tires: Click Here I am afraid that we can only produce 23" to 29" de mountable rims. We are not able to offer a 20" rim. However, if we may be of further assistance, please let us know.
