Do both the small and large letter size both say "POLYSTEEL RADIAL" ?  

Do they offer a tire that doesn't have the "POLYSTEEL RADIAL" as that is not correct for a '60's Goodyear.

(Yes, that could be blacked out.)

OK see link:
http://www.kelseytire.com/pages/preformancetires4.html

they all seem to have too much message on the side wall, however the link above has a whitewall that could easily be blacked out turned inside and then the correct size GOOD YEAR in white added as per the other company option/service.

Mark, thanks for posting!

Thanks, those are actually the original plates for that car.

  A couple of comments:
 1)  I'd like to see a photo of some BFG's with the glue on letters similar to the 67 Speedway 350 "Godyear" tire.

 2) I hope this is not a side issue developing, but, at the NMACN show this weekend, I picked up the current newsletter from the Studebaker club.  The "uh-oh" is a small technical question warning of radial tires causing the original Stude rims to crack.  With a photo.  Right where the tire rests against the rim.Any one ever had that issue?

 I have seen some wheel issues but  I usually put 50 years of time on them  for the  reason they crack. who knows what some of these wheels have seen in the hands of teens / 20 somethings
/ 30 s
/ 40s well we knew what we were doing by then 
50s well i did this in my 20s
 lets just say they might have had a tough life.....

Personally I have not had any kind of durability issue with the 15" ten spokes and radials. I have run them both since about 1975.

The castings are so thick on them I find it difficult to believe there would ever be an issue developed with them?

I originally got mine from Jeff Burgy who thought they were virtually scrap after he went through his Joey Chitwood era.

I suppose there could be some that came off of Monster trucks of the era who had run through volcanoes and such though? Those probably should be used with caution?  Roll Eyes

Some have commented that the 14" ten spokes are nearly impossible to mount radials on dependably? I have 10 of the 15" and none have presented issues at all.
