5. Coker Tire Offers Whitewall Tires in Modern-Sized Radials
Throughout automotive history, the whitewall tire has been one of the most popular choices on everything from luxurious Cadillacs to muscle cars. As time went by, the whitewalls got narrower, offering clean looks with the same undeniable style. These days, whitewalls are still available from Coker Tire Company with varying styles ranging from wide whitewalls of the '50s to this new line of tires from American Classic. The difference in the new line of American Classic tires is the variety of sizes available, making them an option for any car enthusiast. The new tires are steel-belted radials, so it's a step up from the bias-ply tires of yesteryear, but they display the classic styling of a thin whitewall. Thoroughly developed and made in the USA, the new American Classic tires feature an all-weather tread design for optimum performance on wet or dry surfaces and they are S-rated, which is good for 112 mph. Available in over 30 sizes and configurations, ranging from 14- to 17-inch wheel diameters, these tires are great for classic pickups, modern muscle cars, or even luxury sedans, like Lincolns and Cadillacs. The crew at Coker Tire Company works hard to keep up with the demand of consumers all around the world, and these American Classic whitewalls are yet another product in Coker Tire's immense lineup.
