Brand new whitewall tire and rim from 1972 Monte


Recommended Posts

A few years ago I lucked into an ultimate garage find (which I plan for a later post)
 It was a 1972 Monte with 8,500 original miles! Garage  parked for 34 years!

The original tire was in the trunk and never mounted (see pics). If someone wants it and doesn't mind the shipping cost, I would sell it. I'm not sure what it's worth, but I don't need to get rich off of it (if a person could use it for their Restoration).

Its in perfect unmounted condition!

Sorry to say, that is not an original tire. That's a radial tire. 

I was thinking the same thing.  No matter bias-ply or radial, I don't know that I would ever mount it on a car and trust it due to the age and dry-rot.

I agree, I would never use it on the car, merely for looks in the trunk...but as I just learned, NOT original.
Thanks guys!
