Wow, tire info OVERLOAD! Thanks to all of you guys who've posted. First, from the people I've spoken to (at least 5) who are running Excelsiors they've told me that they needed to be trued. Three were radial users and two were bias ply users. I never expected you'd have to true a radial! Second, you're absolutely right about the tires making/breaking the car. I dig bias plies but after driving a friend's '32 roadster 1000 miles over a long weekend and then 400 miles a few weeks later I don't want to run them on my personal car. That's just me. I drive my cars (really hard too) and prefer radials. The car has '41 brakes/spindles/axle already, so don't think I'm going to "street roddy" here. I was originally looking for 16x4" and 16x5" wheels for the car, and was going to run the trusty "dually" 16's in the back. When I came across the set of 4 NOS wheels I jumped on 'em. You would have too! And yes, 15" tires are a pain in the ass to find around here too. The tire store guys aren't happy about it either, stating that 1/2 of the requests they get for 15's they can't even fill the order because they're simply not available. Hey tire manufacturers, not everyone wants to run 22's! So here I am at a crossroads. The 155R15's on the front are a little big but will do. They fill the 15x5" wheels really nice, they're just a little big on a T in my opinion. The rear 235/75/15's wrap around the 15x5's nicely too, I'm just hoping to run something slightly taller (maybe 2" diameter) to get the right rubber rake. Fellas, thanks for the info. You've all confirmed what I've thought and taught me a few things while you were at it. If anyone knows of a pair of ultra elusive 215/85/15's let me know... cuz me thinks nobody ever made such an animal, but they shoulda!!!
