I am looking for feedback on Coker Tire's American Classic Bias Look Radial tires. https://www.cokertire.com/tires/american-classi c-b...

For those who have purchased and installed these tires, I am interested in:
Road feel, driveability
whitewalls yellowing
warranty issues
any other info you can provide, good or bad

TIA

Suggest you Google Coker Tire Complaints. I've seen complaints quite often.

I bought a set of Coker WW radials in 2012, but they weren't the bias look alike. About a year later the white wall started getting small bubbles in it. Last year after about 15,000 miles I got a vibration. After balancing the tires off the car, I took it to a old time on-car balance machine. When he put his machine up to the tire, to rotate it, it created a bubble under the thread where it separated. I replaced them with Diamondback WW's. Bill P. also had problems with Coaker tires on his 57 Corvette.

Gary and Don, thanks for your feedback.

I also had Cokers years ago, the whitewalls started yellowing almost immediately, but no other issues. When they got to be 10 years old I replaced them with Diamond Backs, which I like a lot, but they are now almost 9 years old and while they still look great and have lots of tread, I need to replace them to feel safe at highway speeds.

So I still need to find some good info from forum members here who have tried Coker's bias-look radials.
