    I want the radials if someone eventually makes the Good-Year F60-15.
    So I have to settle for a Wide Oval where they couldn't get the 60 in the O right?
    Geez, these repo Companies are sometimes a joke.

    Kelsey Tire just like any business responds to market demand. Email them and let them know you are a buyer if they make them.
    My guess is if they could sell a thousand sets it would be profitable. Spread that across the Mustangs, Cuda's, Challenger's, Firebird's etc and it's possible.

    I think im done waiting on these dam tires, i call summit every month or so and first they tell me March then April then Coker tells me August so i call Coker last week and now they say possibly November or December and they tell me definitely no 60 in the Oval. Im just ordering the bias plys.

    Sounds like the Company doesn't need our $. That's what happens when they get big and fat, they don't give a flying X about the little guy.

    Hope the Chevelle owner doesn't drive the car alot. I bought new ones in 1975 for $65/each. They did follow the road but
    I didn't have PS so it made things easier.

    This month's Muscle Car Review, Sept. issue, has an article where they tested the new Coker tires. The review was pretty positive for the red-line tires that they tested. Better handling, more tire patch on the road, and less noise than previous bias-ply tires.

    I just talked to Brad from Coker at the Charlotte Auto Fair, he said they will be available in November with the 60 in the O.
