I have the original tires on my 73. The car only has 17,000 miles on it but its been sitting in a garage for 20 years. I'm afraid to drive on them and have a blow out. Thinking they probably have dry rot. Was going to take them off the rims and powder coat the rims. Any suggestions on which Brand to buy would be appreciated. I'm not trying to be exact as original. Just want the best riding tires. Would like the white walls tho. The original tires are B.F. Goodrich Silvertown Belted E78-14. Thanks

tirerack.com has the best prices and decent selection. Watch craigslist long enough and you will find a near new set of take offs for about $250.

Holy cow!! I would definitely not drive around on those! What a find...... Discount Tires is also a good place and will match tirerack on price. I have one locally and they are great to work with.
