1950 Mack LJ Dump Truck

Recommended Posts

We changed out the drive tires not long after this picture was taken - you are right all "tube" tires with 2 piece rims. I had a lot of tire changing experience in the USMC so it was not big deal - got them all changed out in one Saturday.

and had alot better look to them than radials....

I know some on here have said that before, I must be missing something as I dont really notice any difference in the look 


That said we all have our own likes and dislikes so Im not judging at all, just a observation

The old ribbed, square shouldered bias ply is just has a "timeless" look to it.  Something a more modern radial just doesn't have.  For many it doesn't matter, for others an old truck just doesn't look right with radials on it.
