Hi folks, I am wondering does anyone know what the correct tire brand and style was for the 37 812 convertible coupe? I have seen many photos and the majority have a whitewall with two diamonds in black on the sidewall. Were these Firestone tires?

Every 810 812 Cord came with 6.50x16 tires. If you wanted blackwall you had to ask for it. Otherwise you got double whitewall tires. The double whitewall tires are very rare now. This last set I knew of sold for something like $3200.00.... As for the manufacture I do not know.May have been Firestone...

Double white wall means white on both sides of the tire. The first single sided white walls were introduced in 1939

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

The double white walls I understand. Has anyone seen the double diamond pattern that appears in many of the photographs that show the outside of the tires.
