The Coker's I looked at were just T/A tread. The old pattern.

BFG makes (regular W/W tires, 1" maybe)

I'd like to see those diamond backs. I'm not crazy about wide white's, but if you're goin for the original look.

After seeing Rusty's 65, I've thought about W/W's on a more retro-rod wheel. That's why I'd like to see pics of that 60 with the 57 style center caps.

Here is a picture of the Gold Bird from todays drive, the DB tires are very smooth and don't make much noise. This is what I have been working all winter for, a drive with the top down!

You have spent your winter wisely. That is beautiful. I love the wide whitewalls (my Penelope has them as well) and think that they just top off "the look". That car is rolling art.

Default New Diamond back tires on

What a thing of beauty she is! Those WW tires really set her off! She is a keeper for sure! I bet she really gets the stares, smiles and thumbs up when you go by in her!
