I almost bought General Dual 90's from Lucas Tire (for my DeSoto) last summer. They were a little lower priced than the Good Year Custom Super Cushions that I decided to buy. I guess what clinched it for me was that the Good Years came from Pennsylvania while the Generals could only be ordered from the west coast. I figured I'd rather put the money into the tire vs. the shipping because from the west coast the shipping was considerably more.

Did you notice in the pressure test the tires/rims went flying upwards...but in the last shot all the tires/rims were sitting there side by side? That would have been fun to blow up those tires. Laughing

That was a good old video Chris...Thanks for posting...

Bob

Very good tire selection for our cars. 750-14 for the 57-58 Belvedere, 800-14 for 57-58 Fury (and my Firesweep)

Thanks Bob for this info. They really look like a nice tire. I always wondered what size tires came factory for these cars and thanks for sharing this. One thing I still cant figure out is why wide whites are so expensive. How ever the dual 90 seems decent priced. Have you ever seen videos of how some take a regular white wall tire and make it wider? Its interesting lol. Smile
