1925 Standard Six tires - 525 x 21 black?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a set of tires for my 1925 Standard Six Duplex Coupe. It has the wooden spokes wheels. The intention is to buy new ones someday but for the build I prefer to have something that will hold air so at least I can roll it in and out of the garage as needed. 

 

 

I believe the size is 525 x 21

 

I can buy tubes and rim covers new if needed.

 

Any suggestions would be helpful :)

Just curious 32x5.25 is a high pressure tire and a 5.25x21 is a balloon tire???  Same size but not necessarily interchangeable ???  seating shape of rim is different???

The tires that were on the rims were the balloon type. I am not sure if I can use a high pressure tire?

Thank you Peter P and dictator27.  I was thinking back to 1949 and trying to remember information that my Grandfather told me about tires and the change from high pressure to balloon style.

Can anyone tell me if I am able to use 7x20 bias ply tires with tubes? I have found some unused tires with tubes but they are not the 525 x 21 inch ones I want.

I have a 25 standard six speedster . I got model A tires I think 4:75 x 21 They work fine. I feel 5:25 might be bigger then you need. I got my tires from Coker for $ 99 each . I have 6 used tires but you are too far away .Would cost more then new tires to ship!!!
