For the past 8+ years I've been running Nanco All-Terrains on my '67. Before I bought them back in early 2010, I started a thread about the Nancos comparing them to the early Firestone Town & Country tires, and also to the Goodyear Suburbanites, which were the original tires on my jeep: Copy of Firestone Town & Country Tire in 7.00-15 The Nanco All Terrain 7.00 x 15: I've actually been pretty happy with the bias-ply Nancos, which have less than 1500 miles on them at this point. However, I've thought for awhile that I might give radials a try, given the benefits they offer in terms of ride and handling. After looking at the available radial options for some time, I could only find one that has the vintage look and size I want - the Yokohama Y742S in 7.00 x 15. From an appearance standpoint, I was surprised to discover how closely the Y742S resembles one of the popular mud & snow tires from my Jeep's era, the Firestone Town & Country "Wide Oval" tire. The earliest version of the Firestone Town & Country tire dates from the mid-1950's. The Wide Oval, made between 1967 and 1969, appears to be the second iteration of the Town & Country. Firestone continued to make different versions of this tire for decades, the last being the Town & Country Super Radial that was sold until around 2001. Speaking of "Old School", here's a 1967 TV ad for the Firestone Town & Country Wide Oval: Below are a couple of photographic comparisons of the Yokohamas and the '67-'69 Firestones. Brian (BJHitson60) was kind enough to take and send these photos of his Y742S 7.00 x 15 tires. The Yokohamas are shown at left, paired with images at right from Firestone ads for the Town & Country Wide Oval tires dating from the late 60's: I wonder if the resemblance is just coincidental, or if Yokohama might have been inspired by these particular Firestones when they were designing the tread pattern for this radial mud & snow tire. Either way, I personally find the Yokohamas' vintage look very appealing. Below is a comparison of the Y742S with the 1965 Goodyear Suburbanite mud & snow tire. The Yokohama is somewhat similar in appearance to the Suburbanite, though not as much as it is to the Town & Country Wide Oval: Brian indicated that he likes ride and handling of the Yokohama radials on his restored '66 Tux quite a bit. Here are some shots of them on his jeep: The only complaint I've read in reviews of the Y742S tires is that they generate a fair amount of road noise at higher speeds. But as I never drive my Jeep with the top on, tire noise isn't an important factor in my case. I plan to install a set of Y742S radials on my '67 as soon as I get it reassembled after the frame-off that's currently underway is finally completed in a month or two.
