I agree with Kevin. Most reproduction tires are just too expensive. I would like to see raised white letter tires, modern radials, in the Goodyear brand, but I don't think Coker can make Goodyear tires. They seem to be under the rights of Kelsey.

Attention Goodyear:
Please bring back some raised white letter radials as shown on the left side of this image. But this time around, call them the "Wide Tread GT" and use your retro letters from the 60's - as you see in the Photoshop mockup on the right side. Sell them for about $175 each, so they are competitive with BF Goodrich Radial T/A. I am waiting.

I would like to see a BF Goodrich T/A Radial in 255/60r15 that has white letters instead of yellow.

Re: Coker tire on this board? What tires would you like to see come ba

I also have been pondering on purchasing the Firestone Wide Oval Radials. Love the look of them but i'm trying to justify the cost vs. life of the tire, 8/10 yrs at best. I am a believer in changing the tires out when the born on date reaches expiration no matter what they look like. Currently running 7 year old BFG RWL Radials 225/60/R15 front, 235/60/R15 rear and thinking on the recommended equivalent Firestone FR60-15 front and back.

I would buy a set of those Goodyears in Jeff's photo too. Just keep the price competitive with modern radials.

Only the "255" size are yellow(creme). I guess one could use a paint pen to make them white. There's no problem with 225/235/245 sizes that are commonly used on the fronts. They are a true white.

The photo I posted above is 255/60/15 after about 5min of cleaning. The 215/65/15 I have in the front turn yellow too.
