    Not a fan of RWL's anymore. Just want blacks now but can't seem to find anything in 235's so guess I'll just have to turn the letters to the inside.....didn't really want to do that either

    Those look nice. I just did a search on the MT website and it said those tires were available from Discount Tire. The MT tire on Discount Tire's website was a competition type, out-of-stock, and $211.00 each. Cooper was $130.00 each and BFG was $147.00 each.

    I think the MT tire exceeds my need just by looking at the tread pattern. Maybe it's more for autocross, I don't know.

    Saw (out-of-stock) Pirelli for $261.00 each. :eek:

    Correct and thanks for the link. The price is really good and the reviews are good, too. I'll have to consider these in the future.

    I run the Mickey Thompsons. 235x60x15 front and 295x50x15 rear. Been running these tires exclusively since I finished my restoration in 2010. They are a great tire for the price. I have used Cooper and BFG in past. I like these the best.

    I went with Cooper's can't be more happy. The 12 year old in me wishes the image of the Cobra on the side without the white lettering was on the lettering side also. I didn't go with the bfg's cause I heard they aren't actually bfg's anymore. They're made by coker tire now.

    Coker tire....I'm pretty sure doesn't make the Radial T/As. They are made by Michelin. At least that was the rep that I talked to to get the RA # Tire Rack needed to get mine replaced last year.

    Last Feb, yes before Covid, at Barrett Jackson the Kelsey Tire boys were pushing their Goodyear Polysteel Radial re-pops for our cars and the vettes. They wanted to talk about everything BUT price. These tires were the shizzles, but at close to a total $1800.00 for a set of 4 mounted and balanced, they can keep them till they rot.

    BFG’s are made by Michelin, not Coker. o_O
