my wife had one of these… impossible to get it through Cali smog regs… so it went to the crusher…
I appreciate that phrase in relation to these polyester and white shoes and belt-mobiles: "so it went to the crusher…"
If you want a tire from a known tire company you're basically stuck with black. I've got a Fleetwood from the same era and have the same problem. There are some chinese imports with whitewalls available but I'll pass on that.
If you have a car like this to sell, and you hope to get this much money for it, wouldn't it make sense to fit it with period correct white wall tires?
I have a 1996 Park Avenue, and it wears white walls and wire wheel covers. Blackwalls would look out of place on it.
my local tire store has a Firestone FR710 in whitewall. My car takes a 205/70/15. I also see Discount Tire has a Cooper in white. And of course the Milestar which i guess is an import. Not totally impossible for my size.
