Default Re: Diamond Back Bias Ply looking radials

I just received a set of wide whites for my 32 roadster last week. 5.50/16 fronts and 7.50/16 rears wide white walls. About $1330.00 with the crazy shipping costs. I do have them shipped directly to my house and I mount/balance them myself. I also bought a set earlier this spring and put them on my '40 coupe. Same fronts and 7.00/16 rears, also wide whites. This set cost slightly less as would be expected. Loved the tires on the '40 so much I purchased this set for the '32.

I thought the same thing

Ouch. At 2500 bucks I'll keep running plain old bias ply 6.50/16's from my farm store at 150 bucks a pop. And they work fine. I only drive maybe 150 miles a year so it's not a priority to own radials. After you get the feel of a bias ply tire to me it's not that big of a deal.

Especially if $2500 is involved.

Hi my experience with 4 auburns recently purchased and shipped were priced similar to those mentioned by “bored and stroked” above. How did you end up with over $2,000 almost double what I was charged 16” 3” whitewalls. Was that a typo?check w/ Dback for correct pricing. This seems wrong!?? Great tires!!
