    Anybody know where to find some cheap Enduro 75s in 215/75 r15? I just need one tire.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Well, I'm getting 5 Hankooks put on my soon to be arriving new chome wheels. One shop mentioned a Sigma Shadow made by Cooper, but i could not verify the size and WSW status, also the UTOG ratings were 440 A b while the Hankook is rated 620 A B.

    It's getting to be slim pickings on this size - I may want to buy 4 or 5 extras, wrap them in shrink wrap and stash them somewhere.

    I may also need to pull the Yokohamas off my 68 DVC and use those as extras - I guess i could use 235/ 75/ 15s on the 1968.

    I think they would look good on my 89 Brougham. They look good to me, I would like to know if anyone knows where in the DFW area we might find the Enduro 75s like Bigguy2206.

    thanks, Dean
    any luck?

    but the 225-75-15s are back ordered.

    I think I will go with the Hankook Optima H724s at Discount tire or Cooper Trendsetter SE at Pep Boys. The whitewall on the Kumho Solus KR 21 looks too narrow for me . Pep boys has a Cornell 1000 in white wall too, but I never heard of it before.

    I have those Cornells on my wagon. They're Bridgestone tires manufactured for Pep Boys. They stand up to the abuse I put them through pretty well. No problems thus far. I got them because I was on a serious budget at the time.


    The Firestone FR380 comes in a 225/75/15 whitewall too, and from people I know who have had them, they're good tires. 65,000 mile warranty too (beats the 40k from the Cornell's).

    Tiremonkey.com has them for $65.39 a piece.

    It's good that I found this topic especially since I am in real need of new tires! I was wondering if anyone knew or has owned Vogue tires. I really like them and think they would look really nice on my '91 DeVille. Either that or some good cheap tires (205-70-15) with the whitewall. thanks.

    I've heard that the Vogue tires aren't worth the money that is charged for them, and that they constantly go out of balance...

    Yeah, I've heard a lot of bad stuff about Vogue tires. I believe they're owned by Goodyear.

    Check out tiremonkey.com to find whitewalls in your size. They have really good prices, but if you'd prefer a brick-and-mortar tire shop it's at least a good way to find out who makes them in your size.

    Vogue is partners with Kelly-Springfield, a subsidiary of Goodyear. They are not directly owned or governed by Goodyear and are not considered a subsidiary.

    Man that really sucks I really like those tires especially cause of the colors. I seen some tires with red stripes though. Anyone have any idea of where to buy tires wuth different color stripes?

    ^I don't think anyone makes redline tires (that aren't reproductions).

    Diamond Back makes reproduction redline and wide white wall radials.





    Some tires had blue stripes, but most tire reproduction companies don't make them. If they do, they're bias ply.

    Now that you've owned them for about 8 months, any thoughts on their quality? Anyone else on here have these tires?

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I've actually owned them for at least three years. They have only been mounted for eight months. They have seen less than 100 miles, so I wouldn't be a good one to ask for a long term review. They seem ok, and the price can't be beat.

    I never liked the Vouges - way overpriced IMO.

    I ordered 5 Hankooks (one for the spare chrome wheel) and had them put on my BRAND NEW factory chrome wheels. It really changed the look of the car.

    I had a new set of Kumho Solus (225/15) tires put on about 500mi ago -- so far, they're doing way better than the ones I had on before. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest them as an alternate to Enduros if they're not avail. locally.
