    There does seem to be an increase in caster allowed especially for the bigger cars. The most I saw was 2* I believe. This is 1975,

    I installed Michilin radials, at the time with tubes, no tubeless were available then, in 1968 on my '64 Riv. Michelins were 1st.available in 1947 I believe.

    BF Goodrich was marketing Pirellis in 1969 in Canada. I think radials were an option in '71 or '72 on our cars. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Seems like the left side is the worst side. Im going to try and print this out and try and make an adjustment my self based on the info Larry provided. Whats the worst that could happen? I'll need an alignment? lol

    when the big 3 were buying F78x14 glass-belted tires from BFG in Canada for $8.00, why buy radials?Whitewalls were either 50 cents or $2 more. I work for BFG in 1969 in Kitchener, On.
