Are those yours? The Pirellis are a nice touch.

The ones in the pic are later ones with a slightly different tread pattern, but the Pirelli Cinturatos (sp?) were THE classic front tire on gassers in the sixties. Tell that to a dedicated hambone, and watch him have a seizure...

sorry about the crappy photo, its raining so hard I wont even go outside, lights in the garage are pretty crappy. I picked these up off craigslist yesterday for $300 cdn, the wheels are about a 7, the tires barely have the tits worn off, look like about a thousand miles on them. Gave 'em a good scrub with Brasso, and rubbed 'em down with carnuba, they look pretty good. These are going on the front of my '66 Chevy II wagon. Now I just gotta get a pair of 15x7s and M/T drag radials for the back. I'm ok running uni-lugs on the front, but I really want direct drill on the back, so I will probably have to buy those new. Probably wouldn't hurt to finish the damned interior and get some paint on it... ::) ;D

Whats your overall impression so far? They are the 16 rim by 10.5 wide, right? Have you balanced them yet? Did they need a lot of weight? Are you happy with them so far?

Thanks for the feedback. Chip liked them too. I will probably be getting a pair of the 16x10 for my T-Bucket. I'm still trying to decide between them and the M&H 12x16 "Nostalgia"

The Towel City are probably more durable on the street, but I think the M&H wrinklewalls would out-hook them by a wide margin. How are they traction-wise? Will they dead hook from a standing start on your car, or is there some wheelspin? If they do break loose, hows the recovery?
