Jim, most everybody else likes or loves the wide whites, I never did take a fancy to them, guess I am different, I was around when the narrow white walls came in and the wide ones went out,I always liked the narrow ones and never went back. I guess that is why not everybody drives a blue cheby piek up. Hee! Hee!

Corkey Coker has had SERIOUS problems with his third world country made 75 series WW's. We jojkely say his radial WW's are GUARANTEED; to seperate, be out of round, waller like an overloaded wheelbarrow, take a pound or two of weights to balance, WW too wide, and to top all that off,,,,,. Have the tread depth requirments that of re-caps! All that for a low, low price, TWICE that of a regular brand name tire!

His 75 series radial WW's are worth around $400 for a set.

His 14" radial WW's BARELY will carry the weight of the FwdLk vehicles, they are made so cheaply! So just beware. Oh BTW, Coker has controlling intrest (has a hand in making) in American Classic radial WW's.

If someone woul discover a FOOLPROOF way to adapt 14" hubcaps to 15" wheels,,,,,,,. One can use the Diamondback 15" brandname radial WW's

I'm a certified welder. ( 1" plate!) That being in mind, the welding on the wheel lip (the 300 club method) to me is a serious no,no.
