Hi All, Looking for some 225/60r16 Goodyear Eagle Nascar tires with Raised White or Yellow lettering. We're popular about 10 years ago and were used on many of the GM FWD cars. Looking for anything you got. Please let me know. Thanks in Advanced!!! Mitchell

Good luck finding those. A legit nascar tire is nothing but a slick. not at all DOT legal. You could probably find a DOT legal drag radial though

he's not talking about a tire for nascar use, they had some "nascar" branded tires 10-15 years ago that had raised lettering in white or yellow

Haha, I was thinking the same thing! :) and No more messing with paint markers. Not that I don't enjoy painting the letters on my tires, just really time consuming.

Thanks guys! I know of a couple sets of 4 I can get, but are in pretty poor shape. These have been discontinued for a while, so basically looking for a needle in a haystack.

Plus I have plans for them. All 3 of my cars wear 225/60r16s, and I've got a few extra sets of Twisted 5 Spoke Grand Prix wheels as well as a set of TGP Crosslaces. I plan to have them powder coated and wanted these tires to put on the Regal, and possibly both Bonnevilles.

Not to derail too bad, but I think BFG Radial T/As are still available in that size and are white letter

Thanks, but BFG Radial T/As are only available in 14" and 15". IIRC, they've never been available in 16"....unfortunately. Otherwise, I'd have at least 3 sets already. Haha :D

They have been discontinued for years, much like all raised white letter tires for cars. Trucks and suv can have them but not cars. If they came back I would have them on my cutlass

I don't know why I never mentioned this before but my dad and stepmom bought a new 2000-2005 model year Monte Carlo SS Jeff Gordan edition.  It's got 100 to 150,000 miles on it now.  Anyway, it had the yellow lettered rubber on it when they bought it off the showroom floor.  I think my dad ran the tires until they needed replaced or he might have taken them off when they were new and put them away in the garage loft.  Either way, he has them up the garage loft stored away.  When I'm home next, I'll get some pics of the car and the tires if I can.

I had a set of the white letter Goodyear Eagle NASCARS I bought new in 2004 for my freshly restored 79 Hurst Olds, 14 inch. But, over time they got to be hard as rocks with age and are now being used for the car as a show car, not a driver. At higher speeds they vibrated too much so they had to go if the car was going to continue to be driven. I was going to replace them with either 205-70R-14 BF Goodrich TA's, or, 215-70R-14 Cooper Cobras. But, I sold the car & the new owner will be keeping them on the car as it will be a car trailered to shows, etc.

 

As with any tire, 5 or 6 years into their life they need to be watched for dry rot cracks and/or hardness, a real safety issue if you put 'em on a driver. I'm dwelling on this a bit as it a good bet that even if you do find a set, since they will be no doubt over 10 years old, it's a good chance they won't be safe to use as driver tires.  

 

I do agree though, they were one of the nicest looking tires Goodyear ever put out. Too bad they are still not around.

Just got back from my Dad's for Thanksgiving weekend.  I took some pics of my stepmom's 03 Impala SS Jeff Gordon Edition and the factory yellow lettered Goodyear's that it came with when they bought it new.  It was a showroom car in Macomb, IL Chevy dealer.  Dad said he won't sell the tires separately from the car.  If you want the tires, you have to buy the car too!  She has the original window sticker and all the original Jeff Gordon paperwork.

Here's the tires in the shed, I thought they were up in the garage loft but dad has them hanging on the shed wall.  They have about 30,000 miles on them and he also has one of the slicks from Gordon's car, the right rear.  Dad said it's from Talladega when they went to watch Gordon race the car.  Years later, he was visiting a friend who went to the race with him and he found the slick in his garage.  Somehow he got the slick from the car on the day they watched Gordon race and he sold it to dad so he could keep it with the Monte.  Don't mind the little alloy rims that are stored with the tires, extra 4 wheeler rims for my dad's 660 Polaris!

Last tire is hard to see towards the left under a red chamois wand.
