Bias-look ra­dial for Model As, un­usual flat­head cylin­der heads, and a re­pop Deuce grille.

Coker Tire rev­o­lu­tion­ized the mus­cle car hobby a cou­ple years ago when it in­tro­duced a tire that had the looks of a 1960s fac­to­ryis­sue Fire­stone Wide Oval bi­asply but the con­struc­tion of a ra­dial tire (and there­fore the con­tem­po­rary han­dling, noise, and wear char­ac­ter­is­tics of a ra­dial). Now Coker has ap­plied that same in­no­va­tive think­ing to the 1920s and 1930s car mar­ket, and Model A Fords in par­tic­u­lar, with new sizes in its Amer­i­can Clas­sic Bias-look Ra­dial line. Man­u­fac­tured in the U.S., the new Amer­i­can Clas­sic 475/500R19 is de­signed for 1930 and 1931 Model As but will fit other makes and mod­els from the era. The 440/450R21 fits 1926 through 1929 Ford cars and trucks, as well as Chevy pas­sen­ger cars from those years. The new tires were in­tro­duced at the re­cent SEMA Show (where we snapped this photo), and black side­wall ver­sions like this will be avail­able in April 2019. Wide white­wall ver­sions will fol­low soon af­ter.
