What tires?

Anyone have a suggestion for whitewall tires for 62 convertible? Coker seem to be common choice but wondering if anything else less expensive but decent.

Coker will have "period correct" tires; proper width of white walls, even bias ply look radials. If that's important to you, then it will cost you. Otherwise, any local tire dealer can get good quality whitewalls for a lot less.

I wasn't aware that any of the "mainstream" tire manufacturers still made whitewalls in the sizes we use.

Hancook, Maxxis probably do. Call your local dealer, tell them what you got. They'll likely bend over backwards to service a classic car. They probably have access to the same wholesalers that Coker does.
