Default Tmcp #395 tommy lee byrd, coker tires for classic muscle and everything else

Coker Tire got itís start in 1960 when Harold Coker purchased a BF Goodrich dealership in Chattanooga TN and got access to the manufacturers of tires. He started ordering special build tires for antique vehicles made from antique tire molds to fit the classic cars of that time. He either obtained the rights to use the name of the old tire manufacturers or he simply put Coker on the sidewalls, and a brand was born. The Coker family would go to car shows and advertise these tires at events catering to that market. Coker built up itís collection of old tire molds after they were discontinued by the manufacturer and expanded the tire line to what it is today.

By having contacts at the major tire manufacturers, they were able to make agreements to continue using the brand names on the tire made with these old molds. Tommy said that the radial tires with wide white walls that look like originals, has really been Cokerís trademark over the years. Modern radials have better ride and tire life while they enhance older vehicles in comfort and safety. The original Coker radial was the companies own design, and was made to be like the classic tires customers were looking for. Cokerís American classic tires are made in the USA using Coker designed molds.
