  • Halibrand Wheel / Tire advice

    Greetings:

    I have a set of Halibrand wheels and spinners. My goal is to put on tires and put the set on one of my Avanti's in time for the May Meet in South Bend.

    But what tire to use? I am thinking using a non-whitewall tire with only the tire name (Firestone, Goodyear, etc.) in white. The result would be something that one would see at the "500" in the 1960's. Or.....maybe a tire with a red stripe, reminiscent of the "Hot Wheels, Series 1" fame. The combo's are endless. Hence, my dilemma.

    What have you done? Please post your replies including pics of your the Halibrand/Tire combo. Tell me what you like about it and why.

    Lets have some fun. Show & Tell your Hali's!!

            Ted, SELL them to me and you wont have to choose. I have a set on order and patiently waiting, I was told they thought they would manufacture this month. We will see. I already have the tires so mine will be whitewalls out. Hate seeing whitewalls turned inside. Less than 100 miles on tires made my choice easy.
            It is an addiction!

ID:	1725886I put redlines on one. They were the real magnesium version, and so I painted them to keep corrosion down. Getting them dow 7 coated is too cost prohibitive.
