History of Whitewall Tires

whitewall-tires-are-disappearing

 

So when you think of tires, you probably think of just a plain black round thing, right?  You don’t even see white wall tires that much anymore, with newer cars having lower ride heights and wheel designs that are meant for lower profile tires.  Whitewalls have sort of fallen out of fashion in recent years, but they still look great on a vintage 60s or 70s ride, don’t they? But have you ever considered tire history for a moment and wondered how the white wall tire originated?
