What's new

BF Goodrich Radial Truck T/A’s or other large rear tires for highboys.

#1
BF Goodrich used to make the Radial Truck TA which worked great on the rear of highboy’s but they’re not making them anymore. Coker makes a 285/70/15 Silvertown radial which I like but the original 315’s were cooler.

What’s everybody running today on the rear of their highboy cars?

Here’s a few pics of the old tires.

Thanks in advance.

I have a pair of 315 /70 15's on the back of my highboy. I bought them in 2002 and was told they were the last ones in Canada. A local tire shop found one in Winnipeg and the other in Toronto When I'm not using the car I put it on jack stands in order to try to make them last. Paid $600. Canadian for them in '02

^^^ I had a chance to buy a pair a couple years ago that supposedly only had a few thousand miles on them. They looked good but I ended up passing on them after reading some stuff on the web about tires over 10 years old coming apart.

I would probably chance it if I found a pair of NOS ones though. I’m pretty easy on tires and equipment but was scared of the unknown on the used ones.

Here’s some that are similar that I hear Hoosier is making now. I may go this route someday. I’m getting a little burned out on the skinny tire tradional vibe that’s on all the cars these days. No offense of course.

I stole this off the HAMB right after the thread got shut down for not being traditional enough. Ha!
