Square Shoulder Radial

Is there a radial tire that has more of a square shoulder look. I'm more concerned with the rear tires. It seems all the tires I've seen have a rounded looking shoulder with the thread wrapping practically half way down the sidewall. I guess I like the old school look of the bias ply tire.

Re: Square Shoulder Radial

I don't think you're going to be able to get away from that look with today's modern tires.
If you're looking for a more square tire in terms of dimensions,Nitto's are probably what you should be looking at.

Re: Square Shoulder Radial

Just got new Nitto's. They do have a more more square look to them then most other tires. I have 40's series and I think the squareness part would show more if they were 50's.
