I will be putting a set of tires on the '81 soon and I like the looks of the outline white letter tires. Does anybody know what tire brands offer the outline white letter tires nowadays?? and pics would be great!!

thanks,
Brad

White outlines

BFG
Grand AM
Fire Hawk

THose the ones I know of

Also for cleaning the white letters I use Jasco Grafitti Remover.
Get the tires wet. spray a little right on the letters. rub with stiff bristle brush. Wash off with soapy water. They look brand new. Been doing it for years on my Jeep with the BFG All Terraigns. And they get nasty. Especially wen my wife likes to rub them on the drive-thru curbs.

:w Brad,

I went to here at CAC and found 2 Tire Mfr. that have the "Out Line White Lettering" Yokohama (Avid S/T) and Kumho (Venture ST) if you click on the link above (image) it will take you to CAC link to The Tire Rack, then complete the basic info and ask to see the mfr. it also provides a full screen view of the tires ;)

OUTLINE LETTERING

THE TOP FOUR RECOMMENDATIONS,GOODYEAR EAGLE GTII,BRIDGESTONE TA RADIALS, DUNLAP ?, AND YOKOHAMA ,TO WHICH THE YOKOHAMA BEING THE ONLY ONE TO OFFER OUTLINE LETTERING. HAVING SAID THAT ALL THE SPECS ARE CLOSE TO ONE ANOTHER IN DIAMETER ETC, WITH THE ONLY NOTED DIFFERENCE,I BELIEVE TO BE WIDTH, ALL ARE 10.2, WITH THE YOKOHAMA AT 10.5..
I JUST PURCHASED A SET OF 255X60X15....GOODYEAR EAGLE GTII, AND WILL BE MOUNTING AS SOON AS MOTHER NATURE CO-OPERATES.........................

My humble apologies toPeer81, at the time I forgot the name of the particular brand of Dunlap.... it is the Dunlap GT Qualifier T........hence that explains the question mark ?????????
