Per Tire



The first vehicle to be equipped with Goldline tires was the Chevrolet Corvette back in 1965. 50 years after they first hit the scene, you can still get authentic gold line tires from Coker Tire Company, except these are modern radials! They feature an asymmetrical tread pattern and an H speed rating. The raised 3/8-inch Goldline is built into the tire from day one, so it is less likely to crack or fade, and these 235/55R17 tires are covered by Coker Tire Company's Life of the Tread warranty. American Classic tires are made in the U.S.A. and are DOT and ECE (European Community) approved.

Goldline Tires

Corvette Sting Ray buyers could choose from many options, including the tires. Blackwall, narrow whitewall and goldline tires were options during the 1965 and 1966 Corvette Sting Ray production years. Goldline may also be referred to as goldwall or gold stripe tires. These tires are primarily available in authentic Firestone, BFGoodrich and Goodyear brands in the original 775-15 bias ply size, and we also produce a modern radial BFGoodrich 205/75R15 with a 3/8-inch gold line.

H Speed Rating

H Speed Rated: Up to 130 mph (210 km/h). Often required OE for higher performance trim level classic automobiles.

American Classic Tires for Collector Cars

Our line of American Classic radial tires includes P-metric radials (such as 235/75R15) and our famous "bias look radial" (such as 670R15). We offer American Classic radial tires in wide whitewall, narrow whitewall, and black sidewall in select sizes, developed specifically for 1940's, 1950's and 1960's classic cars. These tires feature a classic tread design and a beautiful sidewall that's built into the tire from day one of production. 

Please Note

  • Tire mounted on wheel for demonstration purposes only. Wheel and other accessories are not included. Please note that dimensions listed (tread width, section width and overall diameter) are non-scientific and based on an inflated tire, mounted to a wheel. Dimensions may vary due to rim width and inflation pressure. Please note Chemical Guys Tire and Rubber Cleaner and Adams Polish Tire shine has been linked to Whitewall browning and should not be used. We recommend using our line of tire care products.
