    Help! Tyre choice

    Hi all, Got to take my cheater slicks off, size 31X10 50R on a 12 Inch Hallibrand wheel. I have to have white wall, prefer pie crust, gotta look vintage. All I seem to be able to find, and there is only two of these left is BF Goodrich Silver Town White Walls. Can anybody tell me if these look the part. Oh Im running Coker Classics on the front. Thanks

    Yes i have thats where these are from, In the photographs they dont look vintage, whatever i get would have to look the part and nobody seems to have anything! Can you recommend anything?

    What size are the Silvertowns? Are they going on the Halibrands, as the Silvertowns I'm familiar with are skinny crossplies?

    What type of car are they going onto, and what 'vintage' are you aiming for?

    dont know if this helps but i was after red band tyres for the A,i found a company in the states(via tinternet) that made them but wouldnt send them to the uk,
    i got in touch with northants tyres and they imported them for me,they added a bit on top for the pleasure but it really was minimal.

    hey thanks for that i will try them again. the problem is the 10 in rim and 31 high, just cant get anything. dont want to sell my wheels but looking like i may have to drop to a 8 in
