    I recently received & had mounted all new tires from Diamondback. Both my 64 Avanti R2 & Hawk 64; full performance package, started with 2 complete sets; 10 tires , for both cars. The whitewalls could NOT be cleaned upon removing the blue paint. The white walls were either brown or yellowish. Then we switched to Cooper tires; also 10 tires, and went through 2 complete changes as the whitewall stayed brownish. So between Firestone Tiger Paw and Cooper tires, my tire dealer ordered and returned 40 tires. I wanted matching spares, so 40 changes.
    I am very very happy with the Diamondback tires.

    Original white wall tires on a '64 Hawk would have looked something like these Firestones.

    Just had a post in the last month about tires. Definitely a subject that just depends on the luck you have had. I have nothing but great results with Coker tires and have purchased several sets in the last couple of years.

    1963and 1964 (the car in question) Hawks had approximately a one inch wide stripe away from the rim. 1962 Hawks, as the one pictured, originally had a somewhat wide whitewall starting at the rim.

    Note: If buying new wheels....have them balanced before installing the tires, most sellers will not honor returning the wheels if they have been painted or tires mounted.

    I think the correct 1" whitewall 205-75 15 will fit if you have at least a 5" rim. In my experience most tire shops will not mount on anything smaller like a 4.5" Coker has an American Classic radial that will work, but they are pricey. The 1" whitewall width is a pretty common tire. I use Hankook.

    started a topic Wheels / Tires: White wall tire size for 64gt

    White wall tire size for 64gt

    What is the correct or best white wall tire for a 64 hawk. As close to factory as possible. Possibly from Coker tires. Anyone have any recommendations?
