I am getting ready to put tires on my car and i wondered about the judgeing rules for tires. My original tires would be 6.95x14 bias ply tires. I see coker sells a reproduction bias ply but I was wondering if it would be acceptable use a modern radial of the same size. Ive been told the Firestone FR380 tire looks very close.
My two reasons for doing this would be cost and drive-ability. I am too young to know how a car drives with bias ply tires but I keep reading it is awful.
