Tornel Tire?
« on: October 31, 2021, 13:48:31 »
It's getting harder to find 14" tires, especially whitewalls.  I came across these in 185 - 205 sizes.  Any experience or opinions?

Very interesting. I hadn't heard of these folks, so looked them up:

I like the tread pattern but wish they would have a speed rating closer to the original "H".
