The tires I have on my Parisienne are Hankook Optimo H724's.

They are 215/75/r14 with a nice white wall.

They are great tires and I would think available through most retailers. Even Walmart.

 

Regards, Scott (LandShark ...)

Are you flying out ?

If not,

I have a set of steel wheels off my 69 I could lend you for the trip.

The funny part is, they have the same Hankook tires on them.

Not for sale but free to loan.

London, ON. area.

If you are flying out, maybe someone in the Peg may be able to loan you something.

I hear there are nice people out there !

Hey Keith.
I just went through a country-wide search for 215 75R 14 and came up empty. I ended up on a broad email thread of tire dealers in Ontario who advised me that I wouldn't get them in Canada. I went through the US and got them Coker Tire. Delivered last week and installed yesterday.
I couldn't even find black-walled in that size. Walmart showed on their website that they had them at my nearest store but when I went in, the guy told me that he couldn't get them. They were made as a trailer tire but he couldn't even find those.

Just did a search on Tire Rack, and they have the Hankooks categorized as closeout and they are in back order.  Maybe they are being discontinued?

Although I'm Calgary, I had luck with whitewalls through a great Tirecraft dealer here in Calgary a few years ago......

They managed to track down 4 tires (matching) for me...two from Vancouver,and two in Quebec.

Took 5 days to get them to Calgary. Maybe check with Tirecraft in Winnipeg and see if they can do the same for you.

My first inclination was the Hankooks but if not try this web site in Bracebridge, ON
www.rockyislandtire.com

PartsEngine.ca shows Cooper Trendsetter SE in 205 75 14 whitewall, low stock. You would have to phone them to confirm that they would have 4 to ship out.
You could ship to me at work if it helps.

Canadian website.

I called and they said 2-3 weeks but in stock in US warehouse.

This may not help you but we have another member looking for these tires.

Hey Carl,

Wonder if any are just south of your border ?

I tried to get those optima h24 whitewalls a couple of years ago and found they were discontinued.

I talked to Norm Dumontier at Mid Canada Suspension here in Winnipeg - he's not a tire dealer but he is very knowledgeable in as to parts suppliers in Winnipeg

 

He recommends Curtis Tire

 

Just out of interest which route are you going to be taking home - thru the US or Canada?

 I've got a pretty decent used set of Radial T/A white letter 245-60-14's that were part of the package deal I got from 66GRANDEGUY when I bought his Magnum 500's. I didn't want the tires but he had no use for them so I bought them. I'm 30 minutes south of the Winnipeg bypass and if you wanted to drive the car out here I can install them and balance them for you in an evening.
