● Continental Kit? If you are planning on running a steel belted radial tire, it is possible that the tire will not fit in your Continental kit due to dimensions differing from the original bias-ply tires. The American Classic "Bias-Look" radial tires will fit or a bias-ply will be needed. Click here to see the "Bias-Look" tire. For an explanation of the differences between radial and bias-ply tires, please click here.

Why buy a wheel and tire package?

Best value: when you add up the cost of purchasing wheels, tires, inner-tubes (if needed), professional mounting and balancing, valve stems, special German no-lead stick-on weights and the value of your time, you cannot beat purchasing your new wheels with tires as a package from us.

Ease of installation: Sadly, there are too few tire shops capable of mounting and properly balancing wire wheels and classic, whitewall tires. Most tire shops do not have proper, modern installation equipment or experience to do the job right. What often occurs is that an inexperienced technician will scratch, dent or drop your wheel, causing harm to it. Worse yet, the installer will cause your wheel to leak or the installer might not be able to balance your wheel and tire at all! All-the-while, the customer is spending hours watching, waiting and hoping that the installer does the job right and without harming their new wheels and tires.

Great selection: Only we can offer our customer nearly any brand, size and style of whitewall tire on the market. We make sure that you have the right size, quality and price when you select your wheel and tire package.

Safety: More and more states and countries are outlawing or imposing liability for harm caused by tires that are six years old or older. Many owners plan on installing their old tires onto their new wheels, only to find out subsequently that a responsible tire shop will refuse to work on tires over six years old!

Shipping costs: It is less expensive to ship a wheel and tire package than to purchase wheels and tires and have them shipped separately.
▪ Let us explain all the advantages in having your wheels and tires purchased as a package. You will be very happy that you did.

For those owners who need a polish that can remove and improve dirty or rough surfaces, we highly recommend X-Treem Metal Polish. This hard to find product works well and is easy to use. We like the fact that it is like cotton or wool that is impregnated with the polishing material. You can work it between the spokes and nipples and reach hard to access spots on your wheels.
