AUTOMOBILE TIRES

Recommended Posts

I am looking to buy a set of 550-19 tires for my 29 Oakland. I have checked Coker tires and Lucas tires Coker sells B.F Goodrich which says they are made in America. Lucas Tire has Lester and Lucas tires in this size but do no say where they are made. The Lucas and Lester are less expensive than Goodrich, but I wonder if anyone has any feed back on these tires. I would like to buy American made, but looking for quality as well as price. Would appreciate any input. Also do you know of any other makes of tires that is this size?

As far as Lucas tires are concerned, why not call them up and asked them where Lucas tires are made and by whom.

I have 2 INSA and 2 Excelsior tires on my Pontiac. Both seem to be giving good mileage (less than 50% wear and 40,000 miles on them). I picked these because they had the largest circumference in a 550 x 19 size (also because they wern't priced at $175 ++). Larger circumference less revs or more speed. With the 6 ply Excelsior on the rear my speedometer is accurate.
