Throughout the sixties and seventies, the popular choice for muscle car and hot rod owners was a raised white letter tire. At that time, 14" wheels were considered the norm, and 15" wheels were the low profile alternative. Now that fewer cars are being equipped with either size wheel from the factory (and as fewer muscle cars are on the road), availability of raised white letter (RWL) tires is getting tough. Goodyear, Firestone and Dunlop have all ceased production of their RWL options, leaving BFGoodrich to carry the banner with the popular Radial T/A.
Radial T/A tires feature the familiar RWL design on one sidewall (plain black letters on the other) and a quiet symmetrical tread design to allow for maximum flexibility for rotation. Its all-season rubber compound is designed for predictable handling and light snow traction, but with an emphasis on long treadlife. The high modulus sidewall stabilizers are designed to improve steering response without a sacrifice of comfort. Just like most muscle cars, the Radial T/A isn't intended for ultra high performance driving and handling. 245/55R18 Radial T/A tires feature the classic redline stripe, but just like the RWL tire, there aren't plans for production in additional sizes.
