Need some help with a decision. I have a 68 XR7 that is as concours correct as I can make it. Now I need new tires. The Coker options are what I am considering however... The correct (as factory delivered) tire is the bias ply pin whitewall. I cant see driving much on the bias ply tires because of their limited performance, additionally if the car sits for long periods the tires develop flat spots. That leaves the new bias look radials that Coker sells. The redline or raised white letter version are the only type they offer.
I have a burgundy non vinal top body and styled steel wheels. Red line or raised white letters? I am leaning towards the redline version but have rarely if ever seen a mercury product with that style. They show up quite frequently on pontiac etc.
