    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I was just at my local Cadillac dealer trying to order tires. They are a Hankook authorized dealer. When he called to order me a set of P235 75R15 whitewalls for my 68 Eldorado, they told him "Sorry, discontinued. No more whitewalls".

    My guy apologized and said I might be able to call some small tires shops and try to find some left overs.

    WTF? Are we going to be left with just the ultra expensive Coker and Diamondback tires for our whitewall choices?

    I bought these just last week. They seem nice so far. There is no pic of the white walls but they are.

    Pep Boys has the Hancock tires in stock. I live in Pittsburgh, and stopped at a local store to see them. I actually need them for my car in Florida, and I called down there, and they also have them in stock. They are having a sale until Sept 9 where if you buy 4, they rebate the cost of one tire back to you. 4 tires installed, after the rebate was under $400. Look up Pepboys online and go to a local store to see them. I am buying them next week when I go to Florida.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I bought whitewall Maxxis tires (I think it´s an USA make) last February for my caddy at a fair price (I live in Europe): http://www.classictyres.com/products...ch?supplier=33 They are not discontinued yet; they even have new distributors here. In Europe we have not as many whitewall tire classics as in U.S. so I´m sure you´ll go on having different alternatives.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    A few months back my brother was looking for white walls for his 72 Cadillac hearse and had a hard time finding white walls for it also. His should originally have had the dual white walls on it with the pencil thin inner stripe and the thicker outer stripe, but he didn't want to pay for the coker replicas, he just wanted a simple set of white walls. We found them at Discount in a 235/75/15 and they are Arizonians, mounted balanced out the door for five of them was about 500 bucks. He's put a few hundred miles on them so far and has been pleased with them. He took the car down to Hudson OH this past July in 90+ degree heat down the highway and never had an issue.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I bought the Coker Dual stripe Bias ply for my 74 Calais sedan. I returned all four of them as they were out of round and gave a very poor ride. I won't do that again. Even the tire shop said the Cokers were "Show tires for trailer queens".

    I want something I can drive on at highway speeds if needed. Those Diamondbacks are radials and you can get them in dual stripes. But $229 a tire is wicked pricey. Four tires with shipping, mounting and balancing and you are over a grand invested.

    I thought Diamondback and Coker were the same company....

    No. They make tires differently. Coker buys old tire molds and the licensing to remake the old designs.

    Diamond buys new radials then vulcanizes on a new whitewall to your specs.

    How much are the Runway Enduros? From the picture they look like they have the 1 5/8" stripe, vs. the Hancock 1" stripe. If the price is similar, I sure like the slightly bigger stripe, especially on my 93 Fleetwood.
