Coker Classic | 2.75 Inch Whitewall | 225/75R15

This Coker Classic 225/75R15 wide whitewall radial tire is the perfect replacement tire for your 1950's classic car that originally came with 760-15 or H78-15 bias ply tires. It features a 2.75 inch genuine wide whitewall, which is built into the tire from day one. This is a great size for 1948 through 1961 Buick, 1948 through 1961 Chrysler, and many other Dodge, Desoto and Plymouth sedans. It also fits classic Hudson, Oldsmobile and Packard applications. You'll also find that the 225/75R15 sizing is great for the rear of hot rods and custom builds.

Coker Classic Whitewall Radial tires, introduced in 1995, are the first modern radial construction wide whitewalls. DOT and ECE (European Union) approved, with an all-season tread design and backed by our life of the tread warranty. Coker white walls widths may vary slightly, dependent on rim coverage.

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 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.

We are not able to offer that size tire with a white wall greater than 2 3/4". However, you might consider our radial 760R15 as an alternative. Click Here to take a look!
