    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Well, I had a flat today, a sign that it's time to buy tires. I've been planning on it anyway, so I'll probably be pulling the trigger tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'm going with American Classic 1.6" 235 75 15s, didn't see a whole lot about these in this thread. I like them because I'm under the impression that they're high-quality, made in USA by an American company, and considering these things, are a good value at $145. Just wanted to see if anyone else had experience with their quality. Thanks.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I need a set of 235 70 15's for my 94 FWB, prefer WW's, anything out there anymore? I would hate to go limo size 235 75 15's, but the choices are getting limiting....

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    They're mentioned a couple times in this thread, I guess they're only available through a few distributors.

    Nodih, there's really not that big of a difference in the side walls between 235 70s and 235 75s, less than half an inch. With whitewalls, it seems like it would be almost unnoticeable.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I am shooting for keeping 235 70's if I can. I know, not a large diff, but it is more of a handling issue for me (yes, I like my boat to handle...). Might just keep eye out for Impala SS wheels.... I have some 225 70 15's on now (snow tires) and they do look a tad small.

    Just bought a set of American Classics from Wallace Wade. Service was friendly and even though they're further away than some of the other distributors, they had the best price with shipping I could find in the US. They're shipping them out today, I'll let you know how everything works out.

    Wow. Those are nice! and the size I like. It's getting almost impossible to this tire with a white wall. Very Nice Indeed. They will look just as nice on my 94 Fleetwood.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I think after these cheapie tires I bought for the wagon wear out I'm going with a nice set of fat wide whites.

    These are supposedly good for 40k miles, but I need to do some suspension work so they may not make it that far....

    Massive whitewalls + smoothies = amazing.

    We'll see. I want something wider than what I have now.

    ^then paint your car matte black with gloss red scallops and chrome everything and you'll have a 50's cruiser.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I tend to agree, the big whitewalls look pretty cool. Personally, the 1.6" is enough for my car, but if the wider ones float your boat, I say go for it, as long as they're on 15" rims ha ha.

    It IS getting painted satin black. lol

    1.6 is nice. I don't think I'd go wider than 2 though. I'd have to see them honestly.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    The tires are on and I drove with them today, I'm very happy with the entire process. They're American Classic 235 75 15s with 1.6" WWs. I ordered them through Wallace Wade. Nice people, and the tires arrived in under 48 hours from Dallas to Chicago. They're very high quality and look and ride nicely. I had them mounted at NTB, there was some rust on the rims, but they were able to clean them up sufficiently to eliminate any potential problems. They were supposed to static balance them with weights only on the inside rim so I could mount the wheel covers, but they dynamically balanced them. I had to go back to get them static balanced, but they had no problem fixing it. Overall a good experience and I'm happy with the end result.
