    Tire replacement questions - 1929 Model 135

    1) I bought mine from Lucas tire 2) Custom Classic 3) New tubes are junk compared to old ones but you really do not have a choice . 4) Blackwall 5)Yes you want new tires 6)I think Excelsior and another company makes radials in that size. I do not know anything about them. I think a couple club members have them on their cars. Hopefully they will answer . This is what I did on my 29 130. Just my thoughts . Have a great day

    antique air cooled engine

    I own 2 1929 Franklins and a 1931 Franklin and have never had any problem what so ever from any kind of overheating . Franklin had some of the best engineers working for them back in the day. They did extensive testing including idling a car for 2 weeks straight. They also took second and third gear out of the transmission and drove the car thru the desert for about 2 thousand miles . I think this was sometime in the late 20s. They could not be over heated . A lot less moving parts. A big consideration back in the day was what to do about antifreeze protection in cold climates. Franklin needed nothing. Antifreeze as we know it was not invented yet. That is why the Franklin was called the Doctors car for late night house calls in cold climates. From experience you cant go wrong in a Franklin, plus our club is very active. You will get more help than you bargained for !!!
