    Tony, I wasn't aware of this topic when i posted a similar one.

    Those 50's-style Masters would certainly be another tire Cokers or someone should repop.

    Remember General Dual 90 triple whites? Here they are on my '59 Cad back in '66. I painted the two inner rings black, leaving only the outer 3/8" white.

    Glad to know that I'm not entirely alone in remembering these as a good thing!
    My enthusiasm for getting them reproduced is, unfortunately, following the path of most other passions of mine:

    Tom... A bud of mine put a set of Dual 90s on his black '62 Ford Galaxie 406. I told him those triple striped whitewalls looked like a circus wagon...We blacked out the 2 inner stripes, same as you did. (Santa Clara, 1963)

    He got lots of compliments...

    Great minds think alike, Mike!

    I guess there is a company making triples now, but they are nothing like the Generals (at least as I remember them).

    I had a set on my 1950 Olds Coupe. Good lookin tire.
     
  7. I had a set on a 63 Poncho. They were a very pretty tire, but I found driving on them felt like they were a little squirrely. I loved the look of the tires, but I was so unhappy with them that I replaced them with some plain looking radials. The difference in handling was so pronounced that it felt like I had purchased a brand new car.

  8. I know! I had a set on my 49 ford coupe...bad ju-ju...replaced 'em with radials and the car drove like a new car.

    Here North of the 49th...they were called Dominion Royal Masters same as in the ad above, but were produced by Dominion Rubber Products that later became Uniroyal The competition to those back then, was Goodyear Double Eagles which had 2 white Eagles spaced along the white wall...Nice.

    10 years ago I asked Coker to make some. Here is the response. They were on my dad's hot rod Corvette.

    I just sent another inquiry today.

    Maybe we need to get an order together?

    Tony, these are great looking tires and we would love the opportunity to build them for you. However, to design a new mold and produce a tire we would need a minimum order of 500 tires. If you place the order, you could probably make a good amount of money selling the rest of them off. Unfortunately, we have not had enough demand for these tires to warrant building this many. Building fewer tires would drive the cost up to the point that they wouldn't be affordable. Should you decide to place the order, we will be glad to get started on them for you and hopefully have them produced by early next year. If we can be of any further assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us in the future.

    Best Regards,
