    Nice. Did they use them on the FIA, 427 and coup cars ?

    For those that can't it's a photo of a red 1951 International K1 farm truck on it's roof.

    You're welcome.

    To me it's still transparent. Can't see a thing.

    [QUOTE=Shootnride;194782]Here's the links to the M/T website for the S/R's and S/T's. You can look through the specification chart to see exactly what the tire dimensions are.

    https://www.mickeythompsontires.com/.../sportsman-s-t

    And here's a link to Vintage Wheels that has the dimensions of the Goodyear Billboard tires for comparison:

    Thanks for the links.

The section width of both tires is almost identical, but the tread with on the S/T's is about 1.5 inches wider.

    Hey Ted, I want to make sure that the SR you have is what I can use as well. The sidewall on my G/Y Eagle ll is the 50. (295/50/15) the diameter (or tall) is 26" or 26.5. I have about 2" between the front of the rear tire and the frame. So I don't think the 28" would be a problem. The extra height would help in filling up the wheel well.

    So I would like to get your specs, where you got them and price below.

    FWIW, a 28” tall tire on any Cobra is just too tall. Yes it will fill up the wheel well but when compared to what can fit in the front, it will look a little goofy. I ran M/T drag radials for awhile long ago and those were monster tires with 27.5” height. Gave a nice steamroller look from the back but I never liked the side profile and ended up selling them not long after. 26.5” is about what you want in a 15” tire for these cars.

    Kevin,

    If you just scroll down the page on those links I gave you for the M/T tires, it gives all of the dimensions for all of those tires. The S/R's I had on the rear were the 28x12.00x15 and like I said in post #37, I was not able to set the ride height down to where I wanted it and that is why I replaced them.

    Yep, I'm logged on the site.

    Is the picture of a Blue Streak tire? If so I could see it when you first posted it but cannot see it now.

    John,

    It is a blue streak tire on a blue 427 Cobra and just the front wheel area.

    That is what I thought. I could see it when Gian originally posted it but not now. Strange.

    I just pulled up the site on my M/S Edge browser and still could not see it.
