    Do the original Wide Ovals have the "60" in the oval?

    Don't flame me for the Mustang story, but it's a good one. Before pulling the trigger on the BFG Radial TA'S I saw this add for 4 Firestone Wide Oval F-60 Radials for sale with less than 100 miles on tires. Turns out the owner bought the tires at Carlisle in spring until he could find 4 correct dated ones for the Mustang which he did finding 4 individual spare tires with correct codes. I met him this morning to pick them up, they are like new. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut some days.

    Once you get them mounted, I'd be interested in hearing how they perform.
