The whitewall tire is an iconic piece of American automotive history. We all remember the cars from the '50s that had upwards of three-inch wide whitewalls, sometimes even wider! Since then, tires with a wide whitewall have been quite popular for classic car restorations.
We offer these American Classic wide whitewall radial tires in 165R15 sizing to fit vintage VWs. These tires offer the right look for your classic car, thanks to the tall and narrow design and stylish tread pattern. The 2-1/4-inch wide whitewall is built into the mold from day one, so it is a true whitewall tire that will stand the test of time.
American Classic tires are made in the USA and they are DOT and ECE (European Community) approved and covered by Coker Tire's Life of the Tread warranty.
Fits VWs from 1949-1979.
