    <p style=”text-align: right;”>Hello, i am new here</p>
    My name is Dieter, i am from Austria and i have a Ford business Coupe from 1941.

    What sizes of tyres and wheels are used at this time?

    Stock or bigger? 6.00/16 or 6.50/16

    ( I hope you understand what i mean, but my englisch ist not so good)

    Thank Dieter

    Welcome Dieter, I should think 6.00/16 about right in a ’41 Custom.

    650 – 16 will probably be tight towards the inside rear wheelwell but 4″ whitewalls is reason enough to cut the inner wheelwells out and enlarge the them !!

    White Wall Tires – Which one to choose.

    Choosing White Wall Tires 2

    Firestone | 3 1/4 Inch Whitewall | 600-16

    Firestone | 4 Inch Whitewall | 650-16

    FIRESTONE Bias Ply 650-16 4″ WW

    or a set of these ribbed once !

    I have both Diamond Back and Coker on my cars. I will only buy Diamond Back in the future.

    Hi Dieter,  im Toby from south Germany and i just picked up this 41 Ford yesterday. They could be brothers. Mine are 6.00-16 on the stock 4×16 Rims but i also need to search for new tires. So this is a good thread for me also.
    I was also thinking about the Firestone but its a pity they dont have more WW. Also thinking about bf goodrich Silvertown wich i believe got a little bit more white 20221102_085732

    Hey Toby!  Congratulations, great looking car, i’m glad you‘re back in the business! You should start a new thread with your 41 Ford, i can imagine it won‘t stay stock any longer!
