Another tire question


Recommended Posts


Time to put some new tires on the 47 Continental.

These are rivetted wheels but is anyone running tubeless tires?

Did these cars come with Firestone brand originally?

Is there any issue with the spare tire cover and the 700 x 15 tires?

I've been running tubeless tires for the last 10 years. Occasionally I need to put air in one tire, it drops around 5lbs of air. They are bias ply tires. I'm not sure if radials hold the air better.

The tires are 700-15 Lester wide whites, bias ply tubeless polyester cord with a 6 ply rating. The spare I didn't bother with, just used the best of the tires that was on the car. Hope that helps.
