    Last I checked the Hurst were a little pricey? but I think they look really good. I just have not seen very many people running them. I guess let us know what you learn about these. I'm very tempted as well.

    good point. I guess there is a cost to coolness.

    A nice thing about the Hursts is that at 26" tall they fill a void in sizing for 15" bias-plys. Besides 5.60s which are fairly small, OE bias tires were 27"-plus.

    They'd fit really well on my Catalina but I do agree that a 26" tall tire might look a little small for the Cadillac. All bias repro tires are pricey but $510 a pair is on the steeper side.
    Tradition didn't end in 1964

    having a set of 6.70x15 www firestones on my caddy they even look a little small when the car is not aired out. the 9.00x15 were huge but did a good job of filling the void. anywhere in between seems like a good compromise. when i had the 205/75x15 with a 1" ww they looked tiny and didnt really care for the look too much black wall i suppose?

    8.20/15 Low Profile US Royals are the ones that are correct for my Cadillacs, Donald Ghraib Eldorado Brougham expert, had 40 sets made, they are all gone and they were like $4,000 a set, they woulda been perfect on your '62 Brian.

    It sucks that old tires are so dangerous, I've had way too many failures to run them now, I ain't as young and as stupid as I used to be.

    I rolled the dice on the Amoco tires... and on a set of B.F.s g50's on the Dart.
    But yeah, with a family in the car it's sketchy proposition.

    tires ordered.
