Todd, I'm interested in the same information. What is/where is Universal and do you have a link to it. Are some places cheaper for shipping than others.

Universal tire is the company I just googled them they have been around as long as I can remember. Coker doesn't sell Goodyear tires other than a motorcycle tire. Not in the car business even though it seems like it but I have plenty of friends that are I'm going to pursue that angle. In any case tires are about 80 dollars apiece cheaper than the last time I checked several years ago. 220 at universal and almost 300 three years ago

Kelsey is the prime source for Goodyear tires for the Model A. My last contact with him was that if you buy 20 tires you get the dealer rate. A good dealer to buy from.

Good choice on the Goodyear, I've gotten tires from Kelsey and they are great to deal with.

Kelsey's after sale service is top notch. There are a few companies I deal with in my "avocations" where a HUMAN BEING picks up the phone when you call. They go to the top of my list.

All of the "A" Suppliers, Kelseys, some of the custom gunsmith's I deal with.

The difference between craftsmanship and ownership vs. "business".

We ordered as a club twice from Kelsey with a good discount. Can get rubber stem tubes and liners too. I thought the minimum was 25 but maybe that changed. I had a defective tire and they replaced without question. Highly recommend.
