    Thanks for the nice comments guys! Well I am going to re-chrome that piece Sting, so your going to have to wait

    Here are some more pics. I am planning on redoing the top soon, yes it's bad I know. Hopefully these pics will help people here have an idea how these tires will look on your 93-96 FWB

    How about the Hankook Mileage Plus WW vs. the Kumho Solus WW? The Hankooks are a little more expensive, are they any better?

    These would be for a Roadmaster Estate.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I have looked and looked- are there any fairly high performance whitewalls available? I had to ditch the el cheapos on my '79 before winter and put on a good winter tire (Dunlop Winter Sport- fantastic tires), but the blackwall is killing me, would like to get a set of whitewalls that actaully have some traction and handling. Only thing I have found - and these are not performance at all, but seem decent are the Dunlop SP 60. Anyone?

    Those are probably decent tires, but this thread is more about finding and evaluating the wider OEM style whitewall tires that are no longer produced as OEM. Though someone might be able to offer some personal experience.

    That being said those Uniroyal tires that sven914 has posted were an OEM upgrade for your Roadmaster Estate (I have a 1992 RM Estate btw)

    Hooray wagons!



    To keep this on topic: My wagon has some BF Goodrich whitewalls. Good handling tires, and grippy as hell (ask me how I know )

    But I hate the whitewall

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I used to always put those Royal Seal gold tires on my cars. I thought, and still do, that they were the best looking tire ever. I think the ww was 5/8th and the gold stripe was 1/4. Just beautiful. Those tires are very scrubable. And I never got a flat in one.

    The Vogues are not even a close substitute. They use such a thin layer of colored rubber that you can not even scrub them. The white and gold actually wears off. I have never, ever seen another tire where the colored pApart of the sidewall rubs off. Gte wider, yes, but rub completely off, only a Vogue.

    Mastercraft A/S...under $300 for the set. I bought mine through a Goodyear store. Firestone also has a WW tire for about the same money.

    SO that's what this thread is about? I don't really belong here, unless you count my spare tire.

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    So hey, just a tidbit of info:

    I was tire browsing for the wagon, as I want the correct size, and Firestone makes a whitewall in 225/75/15. They also come in FWB limo size of 235/75/15

    55k mile warranty, and they're $66 each at TiresPlus.

    Has anyone tried the whitewalls offered by Cooper? Not being sure if they're a well known marque, wanted to put it out here for opinions
