small reminder.

Could someone with raised white letter tires please please please, report the size ( height ) of the original or tredwear letters used.

I want to order the correct sizes.

Im surprised no one responded Geert, i was also looking at getting some of these so was watching this post with interest. I know its not much help but my Pirellis are just under 1" tall but the band pattern around them is just over so a 1" Goodyear option on those tyres would sit nicely :)

*edit*.... aha just as Steve responded!

Front wheels are done.

Rear wheels will follow soon.

Since I dont like the view of GOOD YEAR letters glued over another tire brand, I took the time to grind off the existing tire brand before mounting the good year rubber letters. Now you can look up real close and only see the white good year lettering. I used a flap disk on an angle grinder to carefully grind off only the surface that is covered by the letters.

Now guess what is the original brand😁 hint....look at the bottom of the tire....

I had some experience with "real" white letter tires in the past and I think these rubber letters will be the same :

Take a kitchensponge and use sand soap hand cleaner to scrub white again. and spray off with water. I always did it that way.

If really bad, just take a towel and aceton and they will wipe white again.

I've had a few requests for another group buy from Tredwear. I'll be getting a couple of sets for myself.

If you're interested let me know below and I'll see what can be done.

Let's hope they're still trading!

Any other takers please?

For what it's worth I will be getting more in the original font (which was taken from a rubbing of my '84 date stamped NCTs). The font used in the pictures above is a more modern version.
