Question Any difference between BFG Radial T/As and Silvertown Radial redlines?

Hi all. I'm starting to think about the tire and wheel package for my second 67 RS, and I'm considering a 15x7 wheel with either the BFG Radial T/As or the BFG Silvertown redlines. It looks like the tread differs some, at least from the images I've seen, but does anyone know of any difference in performance? The wheels will either be Cragar SS or a classic Rally wheel, and the tire I select has some bearing on the wheel I choose. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Relax, all right? My dad's a TV repairman, got an ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

Re: Any difference between BFG Radial T/As and Silvertown Radial redli

I have only used the Radial T/A's, but have been considering the BFG Redlines. This is a link to an Aussie site that has info on both types you are interested in:
http://www.antiquetyres.com.au/
No doubt you'll find the equivalent US info from a web search, but thought that link might help to start off with - if you click on a particular tire size it shows a larger image of the tread pattern, plus specs/section properties etc.

The BFG Silvertown redline tires look nice however they are not available in many sizes like a 60 series or are they in the wide 255 or 275 series used on the rear of most of our cars. And..they are DOUBLE the price from what I was reading!
