Who makes Raised White Letter Tires besides BFG?

Who besides, BF Goodrich, is making tires with raised white letters these days?

Cooper makes RWL but not like the ones that we're used to seeing on first gens.

I use Coopers on some of my cars. They are a decent tire.

Pretty much Cooper and BFG are all you will find in 14", and the afore-mentioned Coker nostalgia tires. The smaller rims limit your choices. More options for 15" rims. If using rally wheels, I would step up to the 15's - fills the wheel well nicer and opens up some options for bigger brakes. I have 14's on my 69, but only because it has the original N66 wheels on it.

Re: Who makes Raised White Letter Tires besides BFG?

No, your not missing it; LOL. After more digging, it looks like you are correct. I bought a new set of Uniroyal RWL Tiger Paws a few years back for a set of 14" rallys I have. Actually bought 5, just to have a spare. I had recently been doing a random search for RWL tires and they showed up of all places, Walmart. I did a search for Uniroyal Tiger Paw RWL and a picture popped up and indeed showed RWL's. I wasn't buying so I didn't look any further and moved on taking for granted the site was current. I just looked again and they still have the listing with a picture of RWL's but the description below states black sidewall. So just disregard Uniroyal's for RWL's.
