Coker Tire has a Firestone 7.00 X 13. B.F. Goodrich might be hard to find.

FWIW, I have a set of Firestone 7.00 X 13 on my '66 Monza and I love them.

You can save a search in eBay and CraigsList so that you recieve an e-mail when the search matches.

on eBay I only found this:



A cool ad from back in 1966 that compares their tire models.

I "think" that the Silvertown was the one that was used by GM as an OEM tire "back in the day"

The Long Miler would likely be a replacement choice, not original.

Back then, they wanted your old tire as a "trade in". Now, you have to pay them to dispose of it. That is a classic description of a "turn around marketing ploy".

"Back then", used tires still had value for retreading.
I haven't even heard that word used in decades!
