This is a great size for 1954 through 1958 Buick, 1948 through 1956 Dodge, 1948 through 1956 Hudson Hornet, Wasp and other models. The tire also works on Frazer, Kaiser, Mercury, Nash, Oldsmobile, Plymought, Pontiac, Studebaker and much more! It's also a popular size for hot rods and customs.

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.

Product Questions & Answers

I have a 1964 Cadillac and am trying to decide between the Coker 215 75 15 with the 2 3/4" white wall radial or the L78 4" White wall bias ply deluxe. Any suggestions? I want the bigger white wall, but thinking the radicals may handle better.

Thanks for reaching out! What size do you have on the car now? For a stock car that you plan to drive and would prefer better handling, we suggest a set of 235/75R15 radials: Click Here. However, if the car has been lowered or modified you may have to go with a smaller tire. If the car is stock, though, you can have a wider white wall with a radial by choosing a 235/75R15.
