Does anyone know?
Toyo's site says it's a whitewall but that's all.
Also where is the cheapest place to get:
Runway Enduro 75
in that same size P235/75R15?
Anyone know of a (non-Coker, non-show tire) brand with a 1" white wall or bigger?
Thanks. My '92 Brougham (yes, that size is a bit big but I don't care) and
definitely my 1970 Eldorado will need new tires of this size very soon.
Upset at how hard whitewalls are to find nowadays. Any word if Firestone will
be reviving the FR721 anytime soon?

After a ten year lapse in driving (moved to Manhattan) I come back to a world where white walls were on all tires but my '92 brougham has new but black tires, and also auto parts stores no longer carry things for non neutral colored interiors. What gives?

I just threw a set of new 235/75 r15 1" whitewalls on my 75' Coupe Deville about two weeks ago. I bought them at a goodyear tire center and they were only about $90 apeice.
The brand is "Eldorado Golden Fury" and from what I understand they are made by Cooper tires.
They seem to be pretty nice, and the car rides and tracks better than it did with the old tires from 1977 that were on it!
What is the UTQG of that tire you bought?

235/75-15 tires on a 1977-92 Cadillac rub and make noises when curving and over bumps in my experience with a Cadillac of that vintage I owned many years ago which had that size when I acquired it, changed to stock size and all was good. There are many tire websites that carry the Runway and other wide whitewalls. Good luck! :)
No one knows the size of the stripe on the p235
Also share experiences using the Runway Enduro
75 if you've ever used it please; that's another
contender so far for my 70 Eldo.

There's plenty of reviews of the Runway Enduro 75 in the "Official Whitewall" thread. Check the FAQ sticky up top.
You know who might know how wide that Toyo WW is? http://toyotires.com/customer-care/contact-us
Toyo says it is about a 3/8" white wall.
More of a white stripe. Too bad for such a
