What do you think? Are these tires white or gray?

Herb,

I'd be one to say they were a pale gray oe what could be called 'dirty white' as I'm still of the opinion that tires were never white/white to begin with in the era. They were just too expensive to begin with (about 2-3 times what they cost today in real money) and to find a way to bleach out the actual rubber would have just cost even more $$$$. But thats just my thought.

They appear to be about as white as the lady's skin, but not as white as the ruffles on her sleeves. "Dirty white" or "off-white" perhaps, maybe slightly beige.

Hubba Hubba, No wonder Lee tires sold well! I've heard advertisements for Lee tires being sold at Signal Oil stations during the Whistler in the 40's I think.

Is that trade mark the man in the moon?

Are white treaded tires a modern concession to usefulness?

The tires look like they're wrapped in paper (?)
