Firestone Wide Oval Radial | RWL | FR70-14

This Firestone Wide Oval Radial tire features FR70-14 sizing and raised white letters for the ultimate muscle car look. This product bridges the gap between authentic bias ply tires and modern radials. Designed and manufactured in the USA, using new molds and materials, this tire features authentic sidewall markings and tread pattern, with radial construction. This is the ultimate muscle car tire! Firestone Wide Oval Radial RWL tires offer fitments of most muscle car applications for cars that originally came with F70-14 tires. This is the authentic size for 1967 through 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle, 1968 through 1974 Camaro and it also fits many years of Ford Mustang, Ford Torino, Dodge Charger, Dodge Coronet, Dodge Challenger, Plymouth 'Cuda, Plymouth Road Runner, Pontiac GTO, Mercury Cougar and Mercury Cyclone. This is also a nice upsize option for a car that originally came with 775-14 bias ply tires. The tires feature authentically sized raised white letters with all of the correct markings on the sidewall. These tires are DOT approved, and S speed rated. That means they are ready for the open road! Its time to put a set of Firestone Wide Oval radials on your muscle car.

Raised White Letter

This is a raised white letter tire, sometimes called RWL for short. Raised white letter tires became common in the late 1960's on muscle cars like the Pontiac GTO and high performance pony cars, like the Ford Mustang. Raised white letter tires feature white rubber that is built into the tire's sidewall when the carcass is being assembled. The letters are formed when the tire is vulcanized in a curing mold, and then buffed clean to reveal bright white letters. Popular raised white letter tires include BFGoodrich Radial T/A, Firestone Wide Oval and Goodyear Polyglas tires.

Bias Look Radial Tire

The term "bias look radial" is something that Coker Tire created when we introduced the American Classic bias look radial product line. This means the tire has the appearance and the sizing profiles of a vintage bias ply tire, with modern radial construction. This provides an original look with a smooth ride and longer tread life, compared to bias ply tires. We offer bias look radial tires for vehicles ranging from the 1920's through the 1970's.

Sorry to be ignorant, what would be the modern measurement of this tire? 185/70/14? It’s the first number that I don’t know how to convert. Thank you
By Brent on August 23, 2019

The FR70-14 is generally considered to be equivalent to a 215/70R14.

Any problem putting this size on a 1970 GTO?
By John on August 16, 2019

Hi there, Actually, that size is one of the ones we recommend. That should be just fine with the 14" wheel option. Thank you for your question.

Was this tire used on gm or ford or Chrysler cars in the early 70s?
By Visitor on June 25, 2019

Hi there, Not this one in particular due to the fact that it is our radial rendition of the original bias ply tires. You would have seen these in a bias ply as an OE replacement option in the late 60's - early 70's. Thanks for your question,
