Hi, I have been looking at the various "vintage" tires eg Firestone Deluxe Champion, Shinko Clasic 240 & 270 etc. My question is what "vintage tire" is made in radial ? The Shinko is modern compound and S & H rated, but still Bias Belted. The Dunlop 401, 402, etc are all bias tires. Are all the radial tires the round tread type ?
Thanks

I am not talking New Old Stock, but modern rubber compound, 'vintage tread design', with radial construction.


There is/was a company that specialized in making exactly that for both cars and bikes.
Name escapes me now.
Has been several years and my be out of business. :dunno

Should be an R included in the size designation.

Thanks peeps, I knew of Coker, and that they were bias belted. I was hoping that someone knew of radials, like Avon for example. Unfortunately, only in the round tread pattern.
