The things you wonder about while snow blowing...
Actually, they are outlawed in Pennsylvania, and Kansas.
Coker still makes gangster whites. Some others still offer white sidewall (wsw), but it's maybe 1.5/2.0 inches. Cadillac had one that was a narrow whitewall with a gold stripe around it.
What's the point of outlawing white wall tires? I honesty don't know, and have never heard of a reason to outlaw them.
They're not...you bit on a troll...
Of course they're not outlawed. Now polyester leisure suits are outlawed in many places. (Or should be.)
The Polyester Connection! Before radials, tires were polyester cord construction. They both may have disappeared about the same time. And, I don't have much leisure, or the suit, or the tires.
Thought it was the redlines that were outlawed.
Yeah, those tires with all the pigments in the tread compound were outlawed in some jurisdictions. Apparently gangs used the tire color to stake out their turf, and there was all too much burnout activity. I think Dunlop was the #1 company doing these tires and they're gone now.
Yeah, Mr. Coker still makes all those vintage specific tires. Plus, some of the guys with Dubs seem to like a stripe of white on their oversized diameter tires. If I still had a Classic, I'd probably have one set of wheels with the right Whites for shows, and another set of wheels for just messing around.
Flintstone tires are definitely outlawed in every state.
I fell for it.
I don't know why I clicked on this thread...I must be weird, but I like the idea of modern looking cars rocking big, wide, goofy whitewalls. I also like those big, curly, mexican boots...
I remember Pep Boys and 'J C Gyp-me' used to sell the fake 'strap-on' white wall covers...
Like wearing a toupee.
