Vette(s): 1973 coupe. LS4, M-21, DARK SADDLE LEATHER, POWER STEERING, POWER BRAKES, POWER WINDOWS, A/C, AM/FM STEREO, YELLOW ( 952 ).
Firestone no longer makes a 15" Indy 500 or Firehawk. Goodyear no longer makes a 15" Eagle. My 73 came with Firestone tires. I still have the original spare. Hopefully I never have to use it. The 73's also came with Goodyear tires. (1973 was the first year with Radial tires) Hate to put another brand on it, but it's looking like BF Goodrich. There are some on this site that are liking the Cooper Cobra tires.
I picked up a set of Futura 255/60 15's for my 81. I put a little over 5,000 miles on the car this summer and had 1 tire rebalanced. Had a lot of thought and research put into which size and brand tire. The only "problem" I had with the tires was driving over grooved pavement heading to and around Ebo's. Turned out Sarge had the same grip with his tires, not sure what he runs. All in all, very happy with the tires. I won't be storing the car this winter as I plan on driving it on nice days and might even head to Mesa if I get a clear shot.
