    It would be a great day for lowriding of true spoke brought back the original 45 spoke wheel... not feelin' the new 50 spoke wheels they are selling. Can't beat true spokes and 520s! I called them and asked them why they don't make 45 spoke wheels and they said because of safety issues. I'm like don't these people realize people rolled and hopped juiced 4,500 lb cars on the og 45 spoke wheels for years with no problems?!

    to me the new ones have a 6 ply strength side wall so they stand taller, you have to remember the original 5.20 from the 1970`s were only meant for light sport cars, not full size cars of back in the day, and the load rating was very light, even if you multiplied all 4 tires, it still meant you got a fix it ticket from a cop, for tires being unsafe.
    these new tires have been re-engineered to have have a heavier load rate, and the sidewalls do prove it. the tire nubs or wiskers are 50 times the amount of the original tire, proves the rubber has been more evenly molded through out the tire , this gives me more piece of mind rolling on them. this is not just my opinion, it`s a fact.

    After owning the new tires for a couple years now, i would never risk rolling on original 35 /40 year old tires 5.20 tires.(Unless you decide to have them on a trailer queen)
    yes i rolled them back in the day(it was the only small tire you could buy) but we are of the age of electric cars now
    and 3.50 % instead of the 10% home loans and personel computers / cell phones.
    we can`t stay in the dark ages for ever, even tires evolve into a better / safer product
    HERE ON THE BOTTOM PIC IS AN ORIGINAL SET I SOLD A FEW YEARS AGO, OG 5.20 MOUNTED ON OG 45 SPOKE TRUES ( sold all my OG tires that were in the 30 plus years in age, when i heard these new tires were coming out

    NEW PREMIUM SPORTWAYS are mounted on my OG 76 LANDAU

    THEY LOOK GOOD MOUNTED ON 13X7 RESTORED ZENITH SKINNY SPOKES WITH CANTED 3 BAR K/O`S

    There is a big difference in looks. These new Chinese ones have a odd looking box look. The originals had a nice stretch that the new ones don't have, also the sides look different. Hoping someone manufactures the original ones soon.

    Judging from the pic that ekserio posted of them on his LTD, they seem to have a nice stretch to me. Can people post pics of the stretch of these tires on 14x7 wheels. (Yes I have looked through the thread)

    Ok so i finally got around to re-mounting this tire, back to 50psi and rebalancing it, adjusted a little camber & toe, then drove at 70-75mph on the hwy 430 miles round trip over the weekend to a show. These tires rolled smooth as silk. Even in the rain at 60 i had none of the traction problems i heard about, only some sway but i got the hang of it. I will buy these again in the future!
