Default 31 tires

Can someone recommend the best place to buy new tires and what kind? No whitewalls.
Thanks

Agree. That will be my next set. Plus they are a good looking tire to boot.

Others may be cheaper but the Goodyears just have 'the look'.

Try to avoid nylon tires as some owners have noted thumping due to flat spots.

I bought a set of Coker American classics for my 31. I don’t remember what I paid. Without getting the paperwork out. It wasn’t much difference in the price compared to the bias ply tires. What a difference! It’s like driving a different car. Much smoother and better handling. The only problem I have is turning the steering wheel when the car is at a dead stop it hard to turn the wheel cuz of lower tire pressure and more rubber on the ground. Other than that I would recommended buying Radial tires

I have Firestones in the wheel well of my 30' Roadster pick up and 31 Panel truck. They fit fine.

I ordered a set of Goodyear's in March. They arrived in Blaine WA just as the border closed, and there they sit. If I'm lucky I'll have them on my car next summer, and I'll let you know how I like them........,

Pay a daily commuter ( nurse ) or an essential worker to pick them up for you.

...unless you let out some air and carry a tire pump. Same thing for the 16 inch tires.
