Default Re: Radials on a 37. Yes or No??

Sorry, I hate the look of radials in classic cars , but I have ones in my 50 Conv. They are American Classic Bias Look Radials, drives excellent , looks great but expensive and are not available 16 inch. I have had them 3 years now and around 10000 miles on them. Next tires will be the same.
My 50 was equipped with radials on stock steel wheels when I bought it and left front tire popped off from the wheel lip when I was driving in the middle of LA traffic.
At the tire shop later that day I changed all the wheels for tubeless type where is that bead
which keeps tire against wheel lip. So I strongly recommend using tubes with original wheels.
