Tires

Is anyone running the Firestone Wide Oval radial tires? Pros and cons?  The Goodyear Bias tires on my Z are over 15 years old.  They still look good, but alittle wary of them.  And would the FR70-15 fit?  Thanks Bob

I"m running them.  I think its a good day 2 look.  Correct though would be the good years.  They feel fine to me  on the road.

Bob I sent you a message.
As for Firestone's, wouldn't the sportscar 200s be the correct tire on a 69 if that's what you wanted

The Sportscar 200's were the correct tires that came on car. I still have one original as a spare.  Not much tread left. LOL   Im looking to upgrade to a radial, but like the older style look. Was just wondering how they handle.  Bob

Kelsey Tires now offers Goodyear Reproduction Radials.  Not exact, but has white lettering and radial design.

Iím running the Coker Firestone Wide Ovals in FR70-15 on my Z/28. I think they look great and ride fantastic.
