    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I haven't found a source for the 235 70 15's in WW, they are dindling fast. I don't like that big of a sidewall with w/o WW's.... Looks bad. The 93-96 cars were all 235 70's unless limo, they were then 235 75's, which I think are still easy to find in WW.

    Tirerack has none in 235 70 15 in WW now.

    Kelly tires makes a 235/70.

    That tire MT-ED posted comes in 235/70 WW too.

    Two for us, yay! I agree that much sidewall does look ridiculous without whitewalls. I saw a gold FWB, just like mine yesterday, but it didn't have whitewalls. It looked like it was barefoot and in serious need of shoes to match the rest of the tuxedo.

    Yup, that is about it. Looks lousy, and cheap tires look worse....

    235/70R15's can safely be replaced with 245/70, 225/75, 255/65, 255/60, and 295/50R15's. You can even go up to 16" rims, without chassis/drivetrain modification, as long as you get tires that, when mounted, have the same outside diameter and the stock setup.

    The Crown Vic's and other Panther platforms use the 225 60 16's like we do (on my Park Ave Ultra), just the Ford bolt pattern, so it would need rotor redrill/drum-axle redrill and that is still ?? if the hub is the same size, remember, the lugs hold the wheel on, the hub is the load support.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Word to the wise guys, no matetr how cheap they are, do NOT BUY ENDUROS! They ride way too stiff. Feels more like I have rocks for tires than anything else. Terrible waste of money and Im actually in the process of looking for new ones myself. Any other info, please let me know. Im looking for 215/75r15s, and hopefully, with at least a 3/4 inch WW. The 1/2 in seems a lil too small.

    I have the dimension IV 1.3" whitewal. Looks good when cleaned up otherwise once they get dirty the whitewall turns yellowish, I hate that. I should have kept my Firestones FR721 but these are on my moms 78 Caddy coupe.

    Have you checked with Costco if they're in your area? Might be worth a peek ...

    This is a narrow white wall tire for a 1994-1996 cadillac fleetwood & fleetwood brougham 235/70r15 theres a v in 70Vr15 I think you can still use this tire matching the factory's standard 235/70r15 whitewall.

    I hope that price ($366) is for FOUR tires, not just one.

    Edit: played with the cart. Nop. It's for 1 tire. Waaaay too much money IMO.

    Those vintage style tires are not meant to be driven on. They are made for car shows, and to make vintage cars look year appropriate. The problem with them is that they wear out extremely fast, have poor grip in weather, and aren't as safe at higher vehicle speeds. If your going to go for an expensive, vintage styled tire, you should go all out.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Here's a set of Runway Enduro 75s on a Caprice. These are the tires I bought for my coupe. There might be better tires out there, but for the look vs price, I don't think they can be beat. I wonder what pressure caddydave is running?
