Default 51 F1 Side walls

I am restoring a 1951 F1 deluxe cab and would like to know what the sidewalls were on the 16"x6.5" rims. Thanks

Default Re: 51 F1 Side walls

Are you looking for tire size? I am not sure what it is but they usually just go by diameter and width and the sidewall is what it is. I know newer tires have aspect ratios for the width to the sidewall. You're probably looking at something like 16 x7.00 but don't quote me on that. Just an example of the size. If you're wondering about whitewalls. I guess you could have ordered them but not likely anyone ever did.

48-52 f1 Rims are 16x4.5. Stock tires 600-16, option was 650-16

If you mean size of white wall on my 52 with 5 Star extra cab I have Firestone bias ply with 4” w/w

Hope this helps,

Tom
