Check out these wicked cool vintage 6x12 whitewalls I got last wk end.

Last Friday my dad and I went to look at some nos vintage tires on CL. We got there and he had a ton of vintage new tires, mostly 13" and 14" but I was looking around and seen two small tires on one of the stacks and looked at the size and they were vintage Goodyear 6x12 whitewall snow tires 4 ply with no dry rot, probably from 60's-70's never used. He wanted $20 for the 13s and $30 for the 14s, made him an offer on the 12s and got them both for $30. Also bought a couple 13" whitewalls for my tractor hauling trailer I gotta finish soon. My dad bought a couple sets of 14s for a couple old car projects we got going.

Painted up a couple 6x12 rims, still need to mount them up and clean the tires but they will probably go on my '67 Sub 10 for summer use.


Let me know what you think of these.

Calling them "vintage" is making me feel old, I remember when every gas station around sold them

P.S. Should work well on your tractor

Personally,I wouldnt run them.
Do a search on the internet about old tires and dry rot.

Why not run them, they were never mounted, were in dry storage, and have no dry rot. Taken care of they should last a very long time.
