Tires for my ‘65

Discussion in '1955 - 1966 Classic Ford Thunderbird' started by CapitanTripps, Mar 11, 2019.

  1. Howdy! I’ve just purchased a ‘65 Tbird and I’m very excited to fix it up a bit. The first thing I need to do though is get some new tires and I’m not sure what to go for. What do y’all think is the best? I was thinking about cooper cobras but I’m not sure.
  2. My preference is to keep the car looking original. When it comes time, I'm sticking with BFG's that have the 3/8" red line and 1" white wall on them, even though they're a bit pricey at $250/ea. I like the look, and with car being red, the red line looks good.

    I will say though that all my other vehicles have Coopers on them and I've been incredibly pleased with the performance. The Cobras would probably do well on your car.
  3. Diamond Back tires has the modern version of the special order 1965 only, whitewall with red stripe. It looks like original but is a radial. I’ve had them for two years and are satisfied with them.

    I'm running wider Cooper Cobras. I really like the look and the car handles great. I don't use the fender skirts 'cause I don't like the look, but if I did, they would rub on the tires.
