    Is Coker tire seriously the only place that sells the vintage tires? Especially the firestones? If so I'm looking at over $400 for tires and shipping

    Are there any other vintage looking tires? I mite even wanna put a white wall just on the back.

    I live in Ontario, Canada

    Check oldbikebarn.com. They have a pretty good tire selection and fast shipping as well. I just got a set for my '83 and they are quite nice. Granted, they aren't OEM but they are round and will take me down the road.

    Don't get me wrong Its not that I can't get tires, I'm just looking for a very specific look, style. I just don't want some radial very round wall sport looking tire with fancy ant house looking tred pattern like every damn tire has now adays.

    Why can't Dunlop make those in 4.0-19 and 4.5-18 those look nice but they are pretty skinny at 3.5 front and 4 rear. Can someone post some pics of those vintage tires? Pennies can you post your dunlops? I think my dream of firestones is over so I need to see some alternatives on some xs's
