    Do you have a nice set of blackwall tires for me? Something like Snake Bellies, or BF Goodrich Silvertowns.. but BLACKWALLS!!

    I want 26 x 2.125 and vintage, but as good condition as I can find...

    Thanks!

    I have one Snake Belly, free to a good home. It’s weather checked but may be a decent rider and a good-looker with some treatment and low tire pressure.

    Thank you @zedsn I have the repros of the US Royal Master black wall chain treads and would use those for riders before an orig. set, but I appreciate it.

    And thank you too, @A.S.BOLTNUT but Western Flyer won't work for this bike.

    @Krakatoa, I'd like to see a photo of your Goodyears? Can you PM me a photo? Thanks!

    Hoping to find more deluxe tires, they're for a very deluxe bike that happened to have blackwalls.
    Thanks for your help!

    How about a pair of prewar US ROYAL MASTER centipede grip tires that came off of the same bicycle

    Thanks Kirk! I appreciate it. The bike I want tires for is a 1938 Shelby Speedline Airflo, the Allstates are post war and would also likely be found on Sears bikes.

    I'm hoping to find prewar blackwalls, and deluxe with interesting tread or sidewalls. I'm going to start another thread to see if anyone knows what actual blackwalls are shown in the ad for the 38 Airflow...

    thanks!

    That is correct, sir! I believe G-3 Airwheel tires are the ones. If you have a clean set for me, please LMK?
    thanks!
