    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    Dave, I have to give the Enduros two thumbs up. I dont know a whole lot about tires but the biggest difference I noticed was the road noise. I do mainly highway driving and these tires dont make nearly as much noise as the previous ones. I dont know if the other ones were just really cheap(dont remember the brand) or if these are that good but they are quite. The other thing I like about them is that they seem to absorb bumps better than the old ones. I recommend them but my tire history is small. I must say that these are the first set I've ever put on and noticed a difference...but the previous ones could have been very cheap.

    CS, That's good to know. The WWW's look quite tasty with your new wheel covers. I've had about every brand imaginable except the Runway Enduro 75. I roll about 15,000 miles per year, and the last year was almost exclusively in my 79 Cad and that's probably the case for the upcoming 365 days too - - sooo I think I'll do a long term test on these tires. I found them online for about $65 so they're worth it to try.

    Talking Re: The official Whitewall thread

    I just purchased a complete set of Enduro 75's. Seems like I've been looking forever to replace my old Broadway Classics. I was on my 5th set and it has been crazy trying to find them. I almost purchased the knock off Broadway Shadow. I did a google search and found the Enduro 75 in my area, DFW, for $75 a tire. That price included taxes, mounting and balancing. UNBELIEVABLE. I could not be more pleased. Time will only tell if they will wear and last like the classics. But for a factory white wall that is the same identical size as the classics, you can't beat them. Broadway Shadows are a Sigma tire (if they have them in stock, they didn't and they were gonna use a Pace Mark tire) with the white wall hand cut. This is a quote from onlinetiredealer.com, "As long as you know that this is a hand cut white wall that is cut at a whole in the wall down the street so the white wall want be an even circle." If that is what you want on your caddy I guess that's alright. Mines went on my 1990 Riviera, my baby, and that just wasn't good enough. I suggest anyone do a google search to find these tires in their area. It's worth the money. Good Luck

    Re: WhiteWalls

    Anyone had issues with the Dimension IV tires? I had gone through 3 already and all start to bulge or have a bubble where it meets contact with the road. Now I know, you hit a pot hole or a curb.....well no I haven't. I take the same route to and from work so I know what's out there to avoid.
    They are to normal PSI, never over or under inflated. I took pics to show but I did'nt bring my camera, ugh.

    Any thoughts as to what causes this? Thanks

    Kind of late but where about did you find the Enduro 75's? I was looking to purchase some for my 91 brougham but couldn't find any one who sold them locally(Dallas Fort Worth area) So I purchased some Firestone FR380's

    Hoping a bump on this thread will help some of us find some of the Enduro 75s ,
    I think they would look good on my 89 Brougham. They look good to me, I would like to know if anyone knows where in the DFW area we might find the Enduro 75s like Bigguy2206.

    thanks, Dean

    I just put on some Hankook mileage plus II 235/70/15 this fall. Nice ride, quiet, and claim they are a 80k mile tire. I have the same tires on my lowrider 14" wire wheels but a different size. I got these 15s brand new installed for $350

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    www.tiremonkey.com has those Hankooks for $86.91 a piece in 235/70/15

    In 225/75 though, for the older Broughams and DeVilles, your options increase dramatically. Like 9 or 10 different tires, even two winter tires! Here's the link. Enter your own zip for accuracy.

    Are those Hankook tires not 1/2 - 3/4 white stripe?? I'm now needing to get 4 for my recently acquired 1996 Fleetwood. It has 225 / 75 / 15 - wrong size. Man this keeps getting tougher.

    I just saw coupedts' post. those hankooks look pretty decent. time to buy 10! (5 for the Fleetwood & 5 for the 1868 DVC!)

    By the way, what is a 'hand cut whitewall' ???

    ne last update on this:

    for 235/70/15 it seems that only Hankooks are available in whitewall.

    for 235/75/15 (1976 & older RWDs) the same hankooks and Kuhmo & Toyo are available in whitewall all with UTOG 600+ A B and S (or T in one Kuhmo model) ratings. all similarly priced.

    The once popular yokohama avid touring is gone in whitewall... I still have 6 of those in 235/70/15; 5 for my 68 and one saved from my crashed 95

    There were several tires with 400 or so A B ratings - i think i'll stick to the higher treadwear ones.

    All this from tiremonkey.com

    Re: The official Whitewall thread

    On white wall (and white letter) tires, the actual white part is wider than what is exposed. A "hand cut whitewall" will cut away some of the black sidewall to expose more of the white underneath. There is a machine to do this for a nice cut, but some do it at home with a sander or a grinder. Of course, there are youtube vids...

    This shows how to do it with a sander
