Ron, Coker Tire (Chattanooga, TN) sells the wide whitewall radials for about
$160 each (expensive!). They seem to be excellent tires, but I just can't
bring myself to pay that much for them. I did find a tire maker in SC that
sells wide whitewall radials for much less ($85 if I remember right), but
they're retreads. I believe the SC company has a 30,000 mile guarantee
though. When I buy new tires, they're probably the ones I'll go with. Let
me know if you'd like more info and I'll track down the address, phone
number and website. I believe Coker also has a website.
