    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Has anyone dealt with Tires-easy.com? They have the Runway Enduro's in 235-75-15 for $93.90 each. Tiresavings.com lists them at 82.40 each, but according to their website they are out of stock. I'll call them tomorrow when they open to see if that is still true. Anyone dealt with them either? I really need/want whitewalls, but I don't want to get screwed by some fly by knight internet company. Why doesn't Tire Rack carry what we want for our old Caddies???

    Check around locally. You will find a place that can get your Runways.

    www.tiremonkey.com was a good source that searches local smaller shops.

    Both tires-easy and tiresavings seem reputable. I researched them about a year ago, and they seem to be actual real companies. I am about to buy a set of tires for a non-Cadillac and am considering purchasing through them to get the specific tire I want. I will give a full report.

    Re: WhiteWalls

    Purchased a set of Champiro 75 series tires today for my '79 Fleetwood. A decent WW, though not thrilled that they are made in China. It sure rides a lot nicer with new tires that are the correct size. The previous owner had installed tires that were two sizes too small.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Those look like an even bigger whitewall than the Runway Enduro. How much were they and where did you get them? My 78 Deville has 11 year old Firestone 721's with the big white wall like you have. They probably only have 500 miles on them, but it has been sitting so long I really don't know how safe they would be to drive any distance with them. Anybody have any thoughts/opinions on older tires with few miles?

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    My summer tires are going to need to be replaced next spring. I'm thinking about getting Endoros, but I need a little information about them. I found out that they are manufactured by GT Radials (who also makes the aforementioned Champiro), but GT is just contracted to make them and doesn't actually own the brand.

    So what I need to know is...

    Who actually owns the brand? Where are they made? What is the warranty and who supports it?

    Here is a link to the Company website, showing location, warranty, etc. http://www.gtradial-us.com/gtradial/us/index.asp

    I got mine at my independent neighborhood tire shop. $415.30 otd for 225 75r 15

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    ^Maybe the Endoros will have the same warranty as the Champiros. The warranty on them is 5 years and it says "applies to any new tire manufactured by GT RADIAL that bears the corresponding D.O.T. serial number."

    But GT does not own Runway. Whoever owns Runway pays GT to manufacture the Endoro, so the tires might not be covered under that warranty. It's like anything in Wal-Mart that has "Sam's Choice" written on it; Wal-Mart doesn't make anything, they pay a name brand company to make it, and Wal-Mart backs that warranty.

    Actually, I have a set of Runway Enduros on my '68. The tread pattern and whitewall are the same as the Champiro GTs I just purchased. I replaced the tires on the '68 due to age. I thought I had and out of balance tires, but what it was was one of the tires had started to seperate. I was lucky to catch it before it blew out.

    UPDATE: The Diamondbacks I added are performing beautifully. I've put on quite a few miles and some longer trips since my last post. They look great and appear to be very well manufactured. I haven't had to clean them once since I cleaned them up originally after installation. The WW is BRIGHT white!

    There's nothing cheap or inferior about these Diamondback tires. They start with a high-quality tire (AVID Touring-S) and then apply quality control to them throughout the process of adding the WW. Great tires and great purchase!
