Default Radial tires, big improvement.

I installed a new set of radial tires on my 30 A about 1500 miles ago, I have to say it was best thing I've done. Car now drives like your driving on a cloud. No more following the groves in the road. Well worth the cost, also installed new tubes and liners. After installing I had to get use to the way tires looked, they all looked low because of the radial bulge.

Vince,
Are you running 35 PSIG as embossed on the Coker tire?

Vince, Are you using the "special" tubes for radial tires? Or are you running regular tubes?

I had a ‘69 F100 that was horrible to drive. Radials really helped it.

I bought tires, tubes and liners as a set, when I get home I will post who I bought them from, I know they were shipped from California.

I didn't buy from Coker, the tires came from Lucas Tire, American Classic brand.
