Subject: 600x16 Wide Whitewall Radials


A month or more ago someone mentioned a company--out in California I think--that sold 16-inch WWW radial tires. I'm running WWW 4-plies now and would like to get a set of the radials.

Hmmmm, just noticed, some of the "kids" with us might not realize that "WWW" DOESN'T mean World-Wide-Wait!

Don't know if there's more than one source for these tires or not. I've checked the Coker website and some others and can't find any of these radials. Would someone please re-post who has these available, and a phone number, e-mail, or web site address if known?

Also, has anyone tried tires slightly larger than 600x16? I like the wider tread of the newer radials (I have 15" radials I've run on the truck) but would like to stay with 16" tires. Have to admit, though, that the truck "wanders" a lot more with the 16" 4-plies. I'm expecting 16"
radials will help with that. Anyone know what's the largest 16" size a stock 52 F-1 could run without looking like it's trying to imitate a monster truck?

I bought some 16" radial tires last year from Diamond Back Classics at These mounted on my 1935 wire wheels that
take a 6.00x16 tire in stock size. I had to get different inner tubes rated
for radial tires (orderable through NAPA, but Diamond Back Classics did not
carry the tubes). These are new tires with molded in white walls. I don't
remember the modern tire size (this information is all on the black wall
side of the tires and I haven't stuck my head in there recently). I also
don't remember the manufacturer, except that it was a fairly large brand
(Goodyear, maybe). The tire is about one inch wider overall than the bias
ply tires -- enough so that I can't use the stock spare tire cover.

This ad has been running in the local papers for the last week or so:

57 F100 SB, big window $500 (509) 894-4045 (509) 952-4663.

I know nothing about it and have not seen it, but thought it might be of
interest to someone within reach of central Washington (State) looking for
a project.

The dimention for the gate are 52 3/4" wide and 20 1/4" high.
