Bert’s is selling the black walls for $150 and the white walls for $210. I’m not sure if there are better deals out there.

will do. I hardly see them even advertised.

did find Lucas for about 119. I thinks..............

also, looks like coker may have teamed up with Classic of Germany

Summit used to offer free shipping- not seeing that now. Looks like all costs went up.....
as in everything else.

Summitt Racing offers free shipping over $99 but charges $9.99 oversize fee for each tire.

Shipped 5 American Classic Radials to my door.

I tried putting 4 tires in my cart, just to see if it was free shipping. The shipping charge was $39. plus $9.99 for oversized. Maybe the shipping deal is done.

Lucas ,made in Vietnam, and the Excelsior tires are Nylon cord, not polyester.
Try Coker or Jegs, the latter has a discount offer for Excelsior. The Euro's are headquartered near Copenhagen, De. but not sure where the tires are constructed.

I have Lucas tires that were made in England for $99.99 3 years ago,now $119.00,they are doing fine so far,they replaced the Sears Allstate tires from 1960 that still would hold air but were very cracked on the sidewalls.

tires arrived today and they look fine.
do have a gripe about Jegs shipping........... so they charge you an extra 10. per tire for oversize, but they put each one in a huge box, that could easily hold two?


and I wonder why America is run so inefficiently............ people are getting dumber by the minute! lol

A few years ago, a couple of our club members were visiting Snyders and watched as an order for Australia was being prepared for shipping. They couldn't believe how the staff had no idea how the way they packed it made such a huge difference to the final cost for their customer. They had things like brake drums packed in a box with nothing else. Our guys asked why they don't fill the gap inside the drum with some of the smaller items. Turns out, no one, not even the managers had thought of it. They all set to and reduced the number of parcels by about 60%. I doubt the lesson learned is still told to new staff.
That said, don't feel America is special in this regard. We have a plentiful supply of people like that. Do want any of them???

To my knowledge, none of the tires listed in this thread, except the ones mentioned in post #8. are radials.
