Ok so we've had a few debates over Whitewall tyres in the past.When I'm able to I'm thinking now of putting them back on the wagon with no white walls,guess I could be a bit sick of looking at them,dunno but I still like them.So my question is Yay or Nay?thanks fellas😁

Comments

I'd go with a tyre pinstripe

Just my 2 cents
To me it just wouldn’t be the “Surfman Wagon” without them,
Call it a trade mark I guess, always loved the look of the Tasmans and the white walls on the HK mate

As I always say
Stay safe all

Mix it up a bit, go thin red walls or raised white lettering. I reckon the thin red walls would look good

I like it without them.
But, thin white bands would look good too.
I think you are right about the white letters being for muscle cars.

White walls or a white band as mentioned above, wouldn't be the surf wagon without them IMHO

Welcome to the darkside my son! No white walls is the new "classic" look.
But seriously your car looks good either way. (Im thinking of going over to white walls)

Yeah, only problem is, they're getting stupid prices these days.
I like whitewalls, but I'm thinking with the Tasmans, it looks good with blackwalls too. Dang, decisions, decisions.

Yeah I get that, I have dozens of wheels (mags and stockies) for my various cars. It’s good to mix it up for a different look, like they say.. a change is as good as a holiday!
