Default Excelsior Stahl sport radial 550/600 R21

Does anyone have these on their car? If so, please share driving impressions and any pics you may have of them on your car. Thinking of putting these on my stock rims on my 29 Tudor.

I have the 19" on my car. I can take some pics and try to post them.

I like them. They have a pretty aggressive tread, so they may be a little noisier. I have had them for a couple of years and have no complaints.

I think they ride and handle better. My toe in was off, so I just adjusted that a couple of weeks ago. I also had a front brake drum that was a bit out of round. I took care of that this week, too, so much improvement overall.

I have my car back together. I will take a photo of the front tires and post it later on today.

Here are the pics of my tires on the car. Not a lot of room in the garage, but you can see what they look like on the car.

Thank you for the perspective and pics. That helps a great deal. I am going to order the 21's.

I have the 19's on my Pickup, 12K miles and still going. I love them. They make no more noise than the bias ply tires that were on it previously.

But aren't the 21" rims a bit narrower then the 19's? So are the impressions being given for the 19 or 21 inch wheels? A 5.50/6 seems wide for the 21 inch rims.

While this is for one on eBay, at almost 390 plus shipping, is kinda pricey.

What can't be see when you click on updraught's link is the total price; $356.00x 4 = $1424.00 plus shipping. That part does not show up for some reason when you click on the link.
