old tire conversion chart
Anyone know of a handy obsolete bias tire to modern radial size chart?
I swear I saw one somewhere once, and as luck would have it I didn't have my tire size on hand. Now that I have it, I can't find the chart.
Maybe I dreamed I saw it. I dunno.
Anyway, my '59 Chevy Viking/ Ward has 8.00X22.5 tires on Budd rims. The original tires were 7.00X22.5. My concern is that I won't be able to find a narrow enough tire to fit my original 5" wide rims.
Also, has anyone here had any luck with obtaining surplus bus tires from local school districts. Some local bus drivers have told me that they are required by law to replace tires sooner than an individual might.
Unfortunately I lost my job recently so I can't just go down to the local tire shop and drop a few grand on 7 new tires.
Thanks in advance
