I bought one US Royal tire from Universal Tire at Hershey exactly like the tire you show at Summit. But both Coker and Universal
did not have a tube. I ended up getting a tube from Lucas Tire. Tubes are on back order.

I've been reading the AA site for quite some time now and felt the need to ask a question in this thread about tires.
In the 20's/30's a lot of vehicles came with the balloon type diamond tread tires,would there be any want for that tread design with the AA's,I know price is a factor but I'm looking for input,reason being is that Goodyear put these diamond tread tires on the Yellowstone parks busses of the 30's and a handfull of us are wanting to get them reproduced,I've got the people at Goodyear to talk to about the mold, but before I make my yearly call to see if they'll release it I was looking to see if there was any interest here.

Thanks Aaron

they would be neat. How different do they handle on the road? Id imagine they would wear really fast in the middle...

Who made a tire that the tread was juts a buncha dots about the size of half dollars?
