This is the perfect tire for a 1948 through 1955 Chevrolet (including Bel Air, 210 and 150), and for 1953 through 1961 Corvette. It also fits a wide variety of Fords, including the famous Ford Thunderbird. The 205/75R15 radials are perfect for classic Hudson, Kaiser, Mercury, Nash, Oldsmobile, Studebaker and more!

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.

Radial Tire Construction

Radial tires were first introduced by Michelin in the 1950's, and by the mid 1970's, all American cars came from the factory with radial tires. Radial tire construction means that the tire's ply layers are positioned at a 90 degree angle to the bead. This allows the tire to flex and glide over bumps and breaks in the road. Radial tires provide a smoother ride and longer tread life than bias ply tires. We offer wide whitewall radial tires, as well as narrow whitewalls, redlines, gold lines and high performance radial tires. 

Coker Classic Brand Collector Vehicle Tires

Coker Tire was founded in 1958 and many years of our history has been focused on supplying the collector vehicle market with authentic tires. Coker Classic is our house brand, which is a favorite among car restorers and enthusiasts around the world. We were the first to develop the wide whitewall radial, and it's still one of our most popular product lines to this day. Coker Classic tires are offered in both bias ply and radial construction, using modern materials to ensure proper fitment and handling for your collector vehicle.

For my 1955 Belair, do I need a tube with this tire?
By George on June 19, 2018

This is a tubeless tire. Unless your rims did not hold a good seal, a tube is not required.

Do I need tubes ?
By Fred Andrews on August 30, 2018

This tire does not require a tube, but you will need tubes if you are running wire spoke rims, split rims, or rims that are riveted and do not hold a seal.
