  • Hurst Cheater Slicks

    Since my '56 hotrod is really going to be old-school I decided to go with steel wheels and Hurst Cheater Slicks. I like it!

              I went with the Hursts because I could get them in a 8.5" section width--that way I could use them without messing around with the stock axle housing. They were $250 for the pair. Cody at Hot Rod Rubber (Hurst Racing Tires) is a GREAT guy--really superb customer service!

              Since you have ALL THE ROOM IN THE WORLD, you have more choices! You could even go with wrinkle-walls on that beast!

                Do these tires have more tread than the old ones? I don't remember being able to see anything along the outer edge of my brother-in law's Henry-J years ago. Of course, those tires had a hard life and may have been worn down. In any case it is a tough look.

                  The outer "tread" is an option. I just wanted there to be obvious tread in case John Law or the DMV decides to take a closer look one day.

                    Neat, Allan!

                    I remember we used to paint a pie shaped wedge on the rear wheels so an observer could check wheel spin at launch.

                      This whole project is a flash-back for me. I can still smell and taste and FEEL Lion's Drag Strip circa 1970. My grandfather lived about 2-3 miles from Lion's and he and I went about once a month from '66 until the end in '72. I was a big Jungle Jim Lieberman fan in those days--anyone wanna guess why?

                          And she's still a big draw at the nostalgia races back east.
                          Mostly with the Jungle Jim Vega recreation, but she has also very well known to just be at some of the bigger old time races.

                          My most memorable memory of "them" (get your mind out...the car and crew...!) was from Orange County Raceway.
                          Second best was from Irwindale Raceway.
                          At the time...no one could put on a crazy show like they could. I remember Jim doing a long smoky burnout....on the "return" road at Irwindale...right against the fence...with us spectators about 14" away! Literally close enough to touch. Never get away with that now days!
