I am looking around and can't say I've ever seen the smooth gray tires on early Model T's? Anyone have pics of the look?

Thanks,
Jim

Probably doesn't count, but here is a comparison on a speedster.
I had them on this car for about 4 years, the same for the whites. the greys seemed to wear better, and never had any discoloration issues with the greys either.

Thanks guys, that is fascinating and they certainly are in a class all their own. They distinctly don't pop like whites but do look unique from the common black tires.

Thanks again for taking time to post!

Hey Bob in Texas, are you sure those are the gray tires, they look fairly white to my untrained eyes?

Just checking,
Thanks,
Jim
