Default WTB 7.75x15 Redline Tires for 1967

Thanks for the response on my last ad, but I have to be more specific. I am looking for a set (prefer 5) of 7.75x15 Redline tires for my 67' that I plan on having judged in the spring. My preferences are: Goodyear Power Cushion, Firestone Supersport, or Uniroyal High Performance. I am hoping that I find someone that might have purchased tires for judging purposes and no longer needs them and is willing to sell them at a fair price.
Thanks

Are you looking for original non-DOT tires, or accurate reproductions? The accurate reproductions (Kelsey) are only a three-point deduction (out of 4500), and you can drive on them. Even if you get Diamondback Firestone Supreme radial redlines, which are FAR better to drive on, the deduction is less than a lighter, clock, or windshield washers that don't work.

Hi John,
I am looking for correct repros. However, I am currently running the Diamondback Firestone Supreme Redlines. Are you sure the deduct will be limited with these radials? If so, do you recommend that I find a bias ply tire for the spare, or should I use the Firestone Supreme as a spare. I do have five Firestone Supremes.

since the Diamondbacks are an OEM tire - standard deduction of 60% for the FIVE tires, unless of course you have an original NON-DOT tire as a spare, which is judged separately then; and like John stated, you would lose ALL points for a lighter, clock or wipers being inoperative! very expensive points to lose when they are so easy to make sure they are working!

Tires carry thirty originality points, so the deduction for the five Firestone Diamondbacks is only eighteen points; any one of the many Operations items are 25 points each. Focus on the Ops items and don't sweat the tires.
