    Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires were a mainstream tire for all cars, not exclusively a performance car tire, therefore were available in white walls.

    The red line tires were called Tiger Paws, right?

    Red line tires

    [QUOTE=T-CAB;1126722]I have a white '64 Daytona that will be ready for the road next spring. I was wondering how it would look with Red lines tires. Has anyone used them. I no they were no standard in '64

    I have them on my '63 Avanti (with custom wheels) and on my '53 Commander with original Ansen wheels and get very favorable reviews from car show people.

    Yup, you read my mind.....my 63 white Avanti will have blue lines like the Goodyears on it next summer. Expensive but worth it, I will tell the car show guys that Studebaker bought the tires and the 289 from Ford!

    Back in the late 1970's, I was offered a deal on a set of red lines and put them on my black '62 four-speed GT Hawk. For that GT, red interior, and the stock wheels with the red center of those wheel covers I thought the red lines matched up and looked just fine. But, like all tires, they eventually wore out. By replacement time, there were no red lines in sight...so I went with whitewalls, and I believe they were on the car when I sold it. Back then, the cool factor was more about the car...not the tires.

    When I was at the International Meet in Tacoma, I was specifically looking at wheels and tires, since I'm thinking about installing some aftermarket wheels on my Daytona. These are some photographs of Steve and Janet Hedke's 1964 Daytona hard top, the one they've driven in The Great Race. It has BF Goodrich red line tires on reproduction Halibrand wheels. It's not a white car, but this may give you an idea of what they may look like.

    The 64 convertible has the same style Halibrands, but black wall tires. The wheels have red pinstripes which catch the eye. I'm sure black walls cost a lot less than red lines.

    I agree that redlines look good on some cars, like Tom's Jaguar or certain muscle cars. I just don't see them as a "fit" for a 1964 Daytona, but do what makes you happy.

    Studebaker content --- the tires are sharing garage space with the '35 Commander in the foreground.

    Here is an example of car with standard wheels, hubcaps and red stripe tires. However it is not even close to a Daytona.

    They also look good with silver or gray.

    If you like the look of red stripe tires, then use them. Bud
