Goodyear Polyglas Studded Snow Tires

I've never seen another set of these tires, so I thought I would post a picture. They are Goodyear Polyglas F70-14 studded snow tires. They have "SUBURBANITE WIDE TREAD" on the sidewall instead of the usual custom wide tread.

This popped up when i was searching for Goodyear Polyglas, and I gotta say this is a neat picture.

Oh, for the good old days...

Re: Goodyear Polyglas Studded Snow Tires

I grew up in NC about 45 minues west of Charlotte. Every fall my Dad would change the rear wheels and tires on his '59 Rambler 2-door station wagon and put on the snow tires. In the spring the process was reversed with the show tires removed. I don't remember him having studded tires.

Re: Goodyear Polyglas Studded Snow Tires

I remember when I was a kid, my parents had studded tires and when Michigan outlawed them, my mom and I used needle noses pliers and a screwdriver to take the studs out. Ugh, just remembering that makes my hands hurt.

Re: Goodyear Polyglas Studded Snow Tires

I still use studded tires on all my winter vehicles. Work great on ice and compact snow. Fact is, when they first came out the tire shop had to drill the tires and hand apply all the studs. In the spring customers would bring their cars in and we would remove the studs--all part of the business. If I recall correctly didn't Jean-Claude Keilly (sp) have a camaro with a set of polyglas studded ? I seem to remember a picture with him and the car--also had a ski rack, etc. Maybe a 396--would that be fun in the snow!

Re: Goodyear Polyglas Studded Snow Tires

i used to run re-cap studded snow tires in the winter on a '68 Chevelle back in the 70's. Great grip as I remember. Still got the tire chains that i had for that car out in the garage. They were pretty common then. Don't see em much anymore. Those polyglass tires look kinda like recaps. If the're real, I've never seen them before.

Oh yeah, they're real. My father bought them for his 68 Camaro as soon as they became available. He also bought a pair of FC code wheels from the dealership to go with the tires.
