I have noticed lately that more and more so called "traditional Hot rods" are pictured and presented here using radial tires. More recently in a tread here where over 50 % pictured wears radials. In my opinion a "traditional Hot rod" is no more traditional than any other rod, IF you run radials. Its like a thorn in my eye when I see it and frankly I dont see the point. A relativly lightweight A- Bone or 32-34 is not an issue to drive with plys. So why kill the look with those terrible tires. And if you are lurking around here, you are here because you like traditional hot rods...right?? Or did I miss something along the road? Same With traditional customs too although I can undestand it better hiding those meats under fenders and its a heavier car to drive also. but just to make it Clear: It doesnt look good. (To me anyway) Maybe Im pouring some gas into anyones fire here but its my 2....or 5 cents anyway he he. Any thoughts, fire Ahead. Ka booom!!!
