I'd use regular "drivers". Cheaper and they last longer.

How much do you like to be able to read what your tread says?
I paid a nice premium just to be able to show how unique the tires were back in the day. They don't wear as good as other threads either.

I found a steal on Ebay and were perfect.

The non skid tire from30 or 40 years ago wore very well.

Coker Excelsiors (previously known as Commanders) are, in my opinion, the most authentic looking as well as best looking tires because they do not look oversize like some of the other "brands" (such as Firestone and Universal T-Driver).

I am still running 30 year old non skids on one of my cars but the new ones wear away quickly. I run Excelsiors on my cars now.

I saw a full set of very lightly used old NON SKIDs ("almost NOS") at Richmond for $800. They were soon gone.
