Tires to buy
#1
red logo 
Getting ready to buy 4 raised white letters for my 1972 Convert. I just have the stock 14 inch rims now.
The tire dealers in Arkansas are awfully proud of their prices. I am looking at BF Goodrich Radial TA's or something similiar. I have looked at Tire Buyer and others, do you know a good online place to buy raised white's??????

Tyres have gotten way too expensive over the few years. Not sure why. I suspect it has something to do with the government getting involved. I recently found what I thought was a nice set in a junk yard for $120 although one of them wound up going bad and now I have the dreaded matched set of 3.

Got mine at Sears this week for 94 per tire. They had to order them but were about $40 cheaper than anyone else.

my BFG's came from Mustangs unlimited, @ $135 per tire, and they shipped them with a Flat rate of $30 for all 4 tires UPS ground. (this was last spring)

also try Tirerack.com I've heard they have good deals every now and then.

I got mine from CJ Pony Parts. I bought the tires (BFG's) and rims (Magnum 500's) mounted as a set for $1,098 with free shipping. Currently the BFG's are $115.99 each. Shop around and you will find a good deal.

Even in Europe the BFG Radial T/A have gone up in price significantly the last two years. Maybe this is because every month there are less tire manufacturers who make tires for the cars of the golden era. The ones who remain raise the prices because there are less competitors. At least it is mch more difficult to get tires for american cars here.

I paid around 120 Euros for a BFG T/A 235/60R15 two years ago at a german tire dealer in Munich
Today the same dealer offers the tire for a breathtaking 192 euros! (Prices are including sales tax)

Cooper and Mickey Thompson also make tires in sizes for our Mustangs. Well for 15" wheels anyway.
