    When I bought my car I knew the tires were 15 years old. So I knew that was a purchase I had to deal with fairly soon .

    Ive spent the past 5 or 6 months going back and forth between putting another set of white letters on it. Or go redline radials

    Well, I ordered new tires a few weeks ago and they arrived last friday and I got them mounted Saturday

    The look is growing on me

        I love redlines, but they do make a serious dent in the wallet!

            Redlines with Magnum 500s are a classic look.

            Tires and rims look great on your car. I bought a set of Coker redlines through Jeg's and had them installed up here in Ontario. We found that it took quite a bit of weight to balance a couple of the tires. After about 4000 miles, I had one front tire go bad due to belt separation. If you also bought Coker tires, I hope you have better luck than me. I plan to buy a pair of Diamondback redlines to replace my front Cokers.

                  I went with Diamondback tires for the very reason you mention of issues with the Coker BFG carcass tires .

                  Previous owner of my car had bought the Coker tires and had a shake in the car from day one they couldnt get out.
                  Even had a tire issues about a year or 2 later. But in there defense they took care of it right away with no issues.
