Got a 1950 Dodge Coronet, 4-door, fluid drive trans, 230 ci engine. Currently I'm riding on Remington G78-15 4-ply polyester tubeless tires on original 15 x 5 wheels. I've been looking at putting radials on my original 15 x 5 wheels. I had just about decided on 225/75R15--but then I looked at this chart and it seems to say 195 is the highest diameter I should go with. I've done so much research that I can't recall now where I got this--but another chart suggested that 215 was acceptable (and then I stepped it up to 225, based on yet another chart that said it was a larger-than-normal tire, but still acceptable). So--I really want to keep my original wheels and I want the largest acceptable tire I can get (without getting any rubbing in the wheel wells, overly screwing up my odometer, etc.). Not interested in doing any modifications to the car--it's a 90+ percent survivor. Thoughts on the best size radial tire for me? Thanks.
I am looking into having rims/wheels made to fit my one ton 55'. I have been wanting to get rid of the split ring rims and go tubeless. Nobody seems to have them. People have offered to alter my original rims but we rather keep them for when the truck gets retired. I have contacted manufacturers in China. Have not found any in the states. Anyway they require a minimum quantity order. Understandable they are selling wholesale. I am wondering if anyone else is interested in changing out their rims for a newer tubeless type. If I can get enough truck owners together it would help defer the costs. Not looking to discard my original rims. Just want to make our truck easier to use. Yes, our truck is used weekly. It still has to earn its keep. Not looking for long dissertations. Just wanting to see if there are other Dodge one ton truck owners who prefer the tubeless and if they would be willing to partner up. Planning to stay with the standard look of the one ton rims. Cannot guarantee an exact match but perhaps similar steel painted white rims. Details can be worked out once I see how many will be interested. Thanks, Randy
I'm new to this forum and glad to be here. I am about to replace the tires on my B3c. Currently it has 15" rims but I know the truck originally had 16" rims. Why did people convert to 15" and how difficult is it to find 16" rims for my truck. Also looking for recommendations on sourcing new tires/// 700 or 750 6 ply. Many thanks,
