    ^Those tires also come in 235/75R15 for $110 from tireeasy.com

    Here is another site that has them for $149 (they have them listed as a 1.6" whitewall)

    And here is the company web site.

    Not sure if this has already been stated here, but Broadway Classic tires are still available, they just changed the name to "Broadway Shadows" from a company called Sigmae.

    Here's a link: http://www.onlinetiredealer.com/specialty/brdwy.asp

    I never shopped through this website though.

    3 inch WW (I can't see the pic), but I'm going to assume Coker Tire. They're expensive, not sure how good they are though.

    Yeah, those definitely look like the Coker's. They make 2 inch WW tires too.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I dropped down a size and just bought 4 Delta Tire P225/70-15's for our '93 Fleetwood Brougham. Someone may have stated this already, but if not, they are made by Cooper Tire for Delta.

    Paid $68 per tire mounted and balanced and I really like them.

    The shop said come back after 20 miles since they are aluminum wheels and the lug nuts may come loose and sure enough a few were.

    I knew that from years ago, but had forgotten to do that over the years. Other tire shops I have used since I was first told never advised me of that potential safety hazard IIRC.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Doing that "commuting" for the eye surgery for our dog with cataracts and driving from Hartford to near Boston on new COOPER LIFELINER WWs, (OEM size) some of you may recall that I found out how my eBay special 95 Fleetwood had apparently had the governor diddled with when a hyped trucker went all over the road and I zigged when he zagged - kept my foot in it and didn't look until well past him - and when I looked down was doing an indicated 122.
    Problem was, those tires were rated for 118.
    (Yeah, that startled the hell out of me)
    But all you guys said that would be no problem since it was a cloudy morning at about 8:30AM and 55 degrees and I only traveled about a mile at that speed.
    Sure enough, ~5,000 miles later, no bulges nor bumps nor vibration nor indication of trouble. Plus, they all seem to be wearing just fine.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    ^ I don't think its the blast up to high speeds that would give you problems. Its the sustained high speed driving that isn't good for non-speed rated tires. Driving at 122mph for an hour or two would give you problems because of all the heat. A once in a blue moon blast wouldn't hurt things.

    That being said, I wouldn't dare drive to the top speed on one of these cars(on a LT1 Fleetwood its somewhere north of 140mph) on tires that didn't have a w or y rating.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I just received my Broadway Shadow 1.3 inch WW tires today, I'm going to get them installed right now. The tires look and feel high quality, actually they look to be either Goodyear or Michelin quality just by the tread design and rubbery smell if that makes any sense. I noticed Michelin's have a strong rubbery odor, and these tires have that same strong smell.

    Plus they're made in the USA, how rare is that!


    I'll let everyone know how my Caddy rides after they're put on. BTW the size I purchased are the 225/75's. Personally 235/75 tires are too big and bulky looking on these FWB's, maybe on the older 70's caddies, but not the 90's ones. So that's why I went down a notch, this will also help with acceleration, bigger tires just adds more stress to the drive-train and creates more drag.


    I'm going to take pics, so check back in a day or so!

    I can tell you that these tires have not failed me yet, Ive had mine for a few years. Love the White Walls on these too! Although mine was the Broadway Classic version and one size smaller, Im sure there's very little difference between them.

    Congrats! Waiting for the pics!

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Alright, just got home after a long days of school and work. I took a couple of pics, it was a dark when I got home, but I couldn't wait so I got 2 shots in. Will take more tomorrow when it's light out.

    One thing I realized is that the tires have a bluish film coating on the whitewall, so I had to clean em up with plain water. It still has some bluish tint on them, but it's supposed to go away overtime with some extra cleaning.

    Since the WW's are custom cut, they are not perfect, some of the edges are little off, but you can't tell unless your super up close.

    These tires are great, they ride nice, look nice, not quite as smooth as the Kumho's, that's probably because those ones were the 235's so it had more rubber to filter out bumps/pot holes. But overall I am very happy.

    For some reason the other 2 pics wont show, don't know why though. It might be a size issue. Full size car pic tomorrow.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Wow, it looks better than mine! These rock on your FWB, I'll def be getting these when my older broadway classics wear-out.

    Mine also had the blue tint on the white walls when I purchased them, but they came off after a few washes and scrubbing (but don't use a hard brush, soft bristle would be best). Funny you mentioned the sides walls being a bit off at some points up close because I sorta noticed that on mine as well, but rarely noticeable...I guess they still are making them the same..lol

    If you want some advice, I found it best to use Simple Green to clean the tire for both the black wall and white wall portion...its not as acidic as bleach white for example...and it helps keeps rubber moisturized.

    Congrats!

    Your car is GORGEOUS.

    You should take a pic of the other side, so we can see what that chrome piece looks like. Loving the red.
