Has Anyone Used Calli Tire for Custom Whitewall Widths?

Recommended Posts

Some cars from the 1960's used whitewall patterns

no longer made.  Double and triple stripes were common.


In a club newsletter, I saw an article recommending

Calli Tire for producing whitewalls in those old patterns.

Evidently they are like Diamondback Classics, but

their price is much more reasonable.  Instead of $1000

or $1200 a set,  their prices were stated to be $460 for

a set of 4 --not much more than for standard tires.


Has anyone used them?  What did you think?

Is their quality good?


Here's a link to the on-line article, which appeared in the

July-August 2015 newsletter (page 14) of the Lake Shore Region

of the Lincoln and Continental Owners' Club:

Is Calli's process the same as Diamondback Classics'?


I've had dual-stripe tires from Diamondback Classics

on my 1978 Lincoln for 9 years now, and they have

been great.  The only bad thing is the price, and it would

be good if Calli offers the same thing for less.

One of the Olds boards discussed them a while back and consensus was Calli uses imported tires exclusively whereas DB uses an American-made tire if they can get it.


I can't grumble much about Chinese tires. There's a set on the wagon now. They ride smoothly and quietly and with a little over 4K miles wear evenly.
