The whitewalls seem to be a crowd favorite.
Screw the crowd, are they your favorite?
Personally I do not like them.
Whitewalls,nice to meet you at Detroit
I like it both ways. We run WWW on our 32.
See our video link below...............
It will be fun to melt the rear ones off, as I have 5 of them. Sacrificial lambs, as it were.
I'm liking the whitewalls. HRP
WW's not my cup of tea. I NEVER use them. If you like them thats all that counts.
It's nice to change it up every so often if you can.
doesn't look like the same car... go flyin' go !
Interesting hub caps. Look like a cool ride!
yes gonna look good with the white soft top
I'm not a whitewall fan but that said your car is tits and would look good with just about any color tire.
Works for me.
As long as they are not on a mag wheel.
They look ok. Just seams porportion front to back look off. (Size). A little rake would change the look totally.
??? Really? 8.00x15's rear, 6.50x15's front. You guys are hard to please...
Looks good to me. I like the Chevy caps also!
If your going to run white walls I think they need to be a wider white and a smaller size tire in front and also Ford hubcaps....
Looks ok to me I know!!! Turn the whitewalls inside out and u will be the only one that sees them while your driving
Have whitewalls on one side and blackwalls on the other.
That way, everyone's happy.
5.60 fronts and 7.60 rears...
had 8.00 / 8.20s that may have been great on a 50's buick, but on my lightweight fenderless rod they didn't play well...
Think it's the angles the front 3/4 shots were taken from. In the rear 3/4 shot the rake is obvious. Other wise looks good.
That is a cool video RuFFDaWG!
Not happening. It's much more Chevy than Ford. I like 'em. No point in being shy about the Mighty Mouse behind the hood louvers.
Your car sits great! I really like the whitewalls & tire sizing. In looking at the magazines from back in the day; plenty of cars had the same size tires all the way around.
Montanal: Your 32 looks great, sounds great and obviously is great.
Wide whites and tire size make it a "period piece".
Only one thing missing. You need one of my coil brackets to "spiff it up".
Thanks for the compliment. This car is my daily driver for 10 1/2 years. I know it's not exactly "period correct" but that's OK with me. PM me about the coil bracket. Thanks.
Love the look, love the stance, love the white walls, and love the '49?
Friends and self ran wide white walls from '55 to late '60s, all on hot rods, '25 tub and roadsters thru Model A roadsters/coupes, '32-34 and my '36 Five window.
When I put black 8.00s and 5.50s on my red '32, they all hated it! Said it looked like "the Cheap Model of hot rods"!
I left 'em on there, (black) as it looked like older HRM cars...
They match that white stuff on the driveway, whatever that is.(?)
