Looking at the Cocker tire website, I see Excelsior tires offered
They are "P" speed rated (90 mph), so definitely good for a speedster. And for $139.00, attractively priced. Wondering about people's experiences?
Hi Les — can you post a link?
The closest I could find on the Coker site are M-rated (81 mph) Excelsiors at $189.
Have set of 21 " Excelsior on the '27 since 2004, amazing wear, still have more than 1/2 tread. Contact patch is rather flat, but wide enough. Tread is a wiggle design, but with the great wear, swear by them!
I am looking at the 21" tires
Thank you for the information
I'm on my 3rd set of 4.50-21 Excelsior tires in 15 years. The only complaint I have about them is that I tend to wear the center of the tread out quickly.
When I run low enough tire pressure to get even wear, I'm usually down to about 15 psi. At this point the car feels like I'm driving a wet sponge, and I get a lot of tire slippage on the rim. So I tend to run about 20 psi. and occasionally rotate the wheels from side to side to keep the valve stems from getting cut off... again!
I'm pretty sure the car just doesn't weigh enough to get the tire to perform properly. Oh yeah... Turns out that burn outs are kinda hard on tread life too. ;)
I have the 30 X 3 1/2s on my '25. They are nice tires. The only thing I dislike about them is they are too big! I've seen oversize tires for years, but these are even bigger!
