Default wheres the best place to find real wide tread white wall tires ?

got a question- I have been looking all over to find a set of wide tread wide white wall tires for the rear. the problem is the only thing I have found is those cheater slicks or diamond backs. I am building a 23 bucket kit- I have a 10 inch--15inch rim rim. looking for a size similar to N-50-15 (wide white wall tire) so far non to found in a white wall. pro tracks would work but - they are not white walls . would love silver towns if they had a larger tread on them. any info is welcome-----thanks

Ok, guess I don't know what a N size is. Tell me more. I have the diamond backs and so far am happy with them. My rears are P225/75/15, on 8" rims. Would have liked 235s, but not enough clearance from body.

well the diamond back 15 inch tires have about a 10 inches of tread on them- and the cheater slicks have about the same- from what I have seen on a lot of buckets - they have those pro tracks on them- and they have from 12 inches to 18 inches of tread on them- but they don't come in white walls. I think I would be happy with a 12 inches tread . will keep looking------thanks

If you find the tire size you want, and it has white letters, they can be made into white walls. Just have to find someone in your area to grind them.

Porta- Walls is going to be your only option, unless Coker Tire makes something you could use.
