Re: Mechanic grade tires for my '51 Ford Tudoor

Re: Mechanic grade tires for my '51 Ford Tudoor

Re: Mechanic grade tires for my '51 Ford Tudoor

Harvest King Rib Implement 6.70-15 C/6PR Tires, $72.93/tire.

Mechanic grade tires for my '51 Ford Tudoor

I'm starting to do the rebuild on my '51 Ford Custom Tudoor Flathead V8.

What tires could I get at a modest price for "mechanic work"? Example, do some engine or brake work, and then drive the car...
