Goodyear Speedway Wide Tread Pin White Stripe N/F | F70-15

The Goodyear Speedway Wide Tread F70-15 pinstripe whitewall tire is a special tire, designed to fit the classic Chevrolet Corvette. Specifically, this bias ply tire fits 1968 and 1969 Corvette, and it features a special two ply nylon construction, instead of the standard polyglas construction that other Goodyear tires featured during this time frame. The Poly/fiberglass construction didn't prove to be beneficial with the four wheel independent suspension beneath the Corvette, so Goodyear developed this tire without the fiberglass belting. The sidewall markings, .350-inch white stripe and tread pattern is authentic, and this non-belted tire is a proper fitment for your 68-69 Corvette, as it is labeled as an N/F tire, which stands for non flat spotting, a special design for that two year production run.

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.

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.
