Got ready to replace my tires on my 77 and cant find any H rated or above. Got some old Yokohamas on it but I guess they don't make them anymore in my size. 255/60/15. Anybody know of some good high speed skins?
I too was looking at tires recently and also found that there are not many tires left to fit our stock rims. Certainly not any speed rated tires. I think the highest speed rating I found was a "T". I currently have BFG T/As on my vette and they do hold the road well. Unless you are really pushing the envelope, S rated tires should perform well. Heck, most of our old supensions could not handle anymore than the S rated tires anyway.
From time to time I do push the envelope. I try to keep primo rubber between me and the asphalt as I don't want to be picking little pieces of fiberglass from my posterier. It appears that 15s are pretty much a thing of the past. I may have to buy new wheels to get the upper speed rated tires. That hurts since my wheels have only seen one set of tires. Such is life.
