I bought the Diamondback whitewalls and love them!!!
Be sure if you buy new wheels that you check wheel width or you may have issues fitting the tires.
Did you end up shelling out the $225 each as listed earlier?
I did and I would do it again. I love the look and knowing they are the right tire. Barely more expensive that the car whitewalls available. I looked into port-a-walls but couldn't find many people that had good experiences.
Agreed on the price. And let's face it. $500 is not much in the scheme of what is being laid out for good restore. We do all this work and it's little things like this that make all our hard work worth while. Icing on the cake? Under the cake?
God grant me the strength to restore the trailers I can, The courage to strip the parts off the ones I can't, And the wisdom to know the difference...

The tires should/usually are the last item that needs to be replaced, and after spending what equates to a really nice used car on my trailer, I just couldn't justify the cost. Beside if you do the spare tire, your closer to a grand once you figure shipping. I paid less for 3 black wall trailer tires then one of those custom white walls. Oh well to each their own!
I an remember when you were a total nerd if you had white walls, to be cool you had to have black walls and many places only had them in there lowest level of tires. Now things are starting to reverse. I also remember when people took the wings off and threw them away so people wouldn't know they had one of those cheap Shastas, and if you drove a four door car it was your mothers. Times do change.
Colored stripes and raised white letters all started around the same time.It's not how old you are its the miles you traveled, but I have noticed that most people have more hair than me for some reason also darker.
