Whitewall tires for my LeBaron

Postby clasicolebaron » Sun Oct 22, 2017 3:09 pm

Hello to all. I have Not been able to find whitewall tires for my Lebaron here on Vancouver, B.C.

Does anyone can suggest me where, or shared me a link to a company here in BC, Winter's coming and need to update.

Hi
I haven't had any luck either in finding whitewalls up here and I'm looking for 185/70R13 , 175/80R13 and the 185/70R14.
The Cooper Trendsetter SE and MileStar along with Matrix Multimile seem to offer various versions with whitewalls but I have yet to see them.
Trying to find a tire retailer that will bring these in is frustrating but I'm still on it..... I may have to go Stateside.
Blackwalls seem to be the norm now and it bugs the daylights out of me.

I put Hankook Optimo H724 in my Lebaron with 14" tires this last summer. The ones I got had the narrow whitewall but I had them put it on the inside.

Hankook, at the time, had like a $100.00 rebate on a set of 4 plus the tire dealer was running a buy 3, get 1 free. Ended up costing about $50.00 a tire, Such a good deal I bought a set for one of my other old cars that has 14" tires.

They are 185/75R14. Was supposed to be 185/70R14.

Service adviser mis-keyed when he ordered the tires. Original estimate had the correct size and I caught it when I paid the bill and the price was different. They were willing to take off the new tires, put on the old tires , and reorder the correct size. Was going to be a week or so before the tires came in and I would need to use another vacation day. Size they put on was close enough and they charged me the original estimate price so I didn't bother changing sizes.

Ended up getting a set of 215/75R14 for my 1959 Chevy while this special was going on.

Hello to both for the detailed explanation. I will continue my search, options here on Ca might be different that across the border, even some of the staff does Not know what the whitewall term means. Guess I will have to travel south to get a set
185/70R14 Of Course
