They look AWESOME!!
I ran L-78s on this car till you could see the air through the rubber, have to say it did drive much nicer when I put radials on it. What to do eh [I'm canadian, we always say eh]
7.10-15 good year super cushion are the deal. Widest ww ever!!!
Mercjurij, are Goodyear Super Cushions easily available in Germany or did you import them yourself?
imported myself!!! much more cheaper!!! kelsey tires...
I installed 7.10 Firestones on my Merc today. I like them a lot but they raised my car and I'm going to have to drop the front a bit to make up for the increase in tire diameter.
Sup Skirv - nice!!! How the hell do you decide what to cruise??
Any more pics of that shoe-box Ford? Profile pic? Thanks!
Maybe off the topic, but here we go. Just delete the post, if its off the topic

Better call a tow truck this thing is broke. Looks like the rear end is missing.
I have G-78's on my '56 F100 but they look kinda big.... I'll know more in the spring when I get to drive it.
My '52 Pontiac is getting some 775X15's.... got a good deal on 'em.
I have always liked bigger tires...and say go for it!
Your ride, and it looks cool IMHO
good topic. up for spring-time!
I wish I could fit a bigger tire up front. Damn Camaro clip. I do love the big tire look though...
Like I said previously, I have 7.60s on my car as thats what it came off the line with. To me the 3" white wall doesn't look big enough. Now I can see why the 7.10s would be a better choice. A. they make the car lower B. smaller tire = more white wall.
I have a 54 Chrysler that has G75's at the moment and want to go for something wider. Glad I came across this thread. Plenty of great info. So since I will be lowering it soon I wanted to get a bigger white. Has anyone tried the 6.70 Goodyears? Are they smaller in height than the 7.10's? but have the same 4+ inch whites?
