No doubt.I was curious if there was a set out there that someone had gone away from and not using that would consider selling.See how it goes...

My tyre guru managed to get me Cooper 215 75 14s with thin white walls. However, that was quite a few years ago and he said he would no longer be able to get them because the dinosaur content had been outlawed by Europe. Hopefully, they're available in N. America.

Since, with a few exceptions, we're stuck with all the restrictions they imposed before we left the "Union", it's unlikely that particular law will be rewritten now we're no longer ruled by Brussels. Along with vacuums that don't work because of ridiculous limits on the wattage of motors (I managed to buy two and some spares before that nonsense), stain removers without the chemicals that actually remove stains, I could quote dozens of examples of absurd committee decisions by the European Aviation Safety Authority that have severely affected my little business. A very experienced electrician friend has shown me mandated replacement switch components that are actually dangerous.

Most of us hope for better decisions now they're being made in Westminster again.

Interesting,  i run a 215 75 14 on my 64 beaumont,  they are old now about 12 years ago i bought them.  nobody makes that size anymore unfortunately.  seems like coker and other specialty places are the only ones handling 14 " anymore.  guess i better stock up on 15 inch steelies!!!

sorry this one went over my head:  "Dinosaur content"?

Hankook Optimo H724 215 75 R14  had white walls available just a few years ago.

 Yeah that is what I'm running on my car now.  I think they are close to 3 years old.  I think they were only about $75 a corner back then.  They seem to go round and round anyhow.

Sorry Dave,

It was a reference to the amount of oil products used in the manufacture of those particular tyres and the common misconception that dinosaur remains form a part of the oil. That became part of my feeble attempt at prose.

Having re-read it, I think I may have been somewhat over political in the rest of the post. If that's offended at all, or is against forum etiquette, I apologise.

Recently picked up a new set of 215 70R14 Uniroyal Tire Paws with 3/4" white wall. Build dates of 2018 and 2019. Brand new on S10 or Monte Carlo rims for $500.
I do see them on eBay but always wondered if they were much older stock.
Both Coker and Universal have a 14" off brand narrow whitewall for $90US it's just to get to the states to get them as shipping is crazy. ( same tire that Queensway quoted me $229Cdn for )

As long as I can find 15" steels that my dogdish fit I'll likely switch to 15"s. I want a bit taller tire. The biggest 14" tire I can find is a 225-70-14" and I'd like a bit taller to go along with my non-overdrive manual trans. 2800 RPM on the highway is not to my liking.

D56F5F89-35E1-40F7-9F8E-A38E1A1292B1.jpegCarl, my 15 inch have 4 hubcap bumps, if you happen to see them at a junkyard. Stock 63 dog dish are tight but work fine. Just have to be careful getting them on and off. Likely from a 70s full size gm, I bought them from a guy running them on a 71 Nova, he went to chrome.

It seems to me the 73-77 GM A bodies also had 15" wheels so I think I'll start keeping an eye out for some of those.

As the old stuff goes away in the junkyards this stuff is getting tougher.

Interesting, I'm thinking those are Parisienne caps with Grande Parisienne spinners maybe?

Shoot, I was very close by there yesterday. Not that I plan to ever go to Walker but I'd do it to pick something up for someone else.

I may be in that area next week again if nobody steps up in the meantime.

I've made 2 attempts to deal with Walker Auto. I live an hour away. Twice I called the day before to confirm that they would be open. Twice I drove there after confirming they would be open and the doors were locked. One of those times the employee walked in the door as I was pulling into the parking lot. I saw him unlock the door and walk in. He locked the door behind him and wouldn't come to the door even though he knew I was there and trying to get in.

I'm done with Walker but if I'm in the city and around there I'll still see if I can pick up the decals for you. And once I've done that and I'm ready to leave I might have a few questions for them as to their business etiquette!

I would try elsewhere too.   I would agree with carl,  not worth it.  I mean its tough to sell resto parts in canada, you would think they could make the effort to mail for you.

Does a place like Ames or even ebay carry those same decals,  i would go that route.

How about painting a white stripe on them ? Get an appropriate width brush

If I go to the city and to that area I have no problem going there for you. I'd actually like to meet the guy who jerked me around twice!
