American Classic

  • American Classic Tire Details
  • Construction: Polyester cord with steel belts
  • All American Classic radials are tubeless, however, they are "tube-friendly". It is perfectly OK to run inner-tubes but make sure you remove all inspection tags first before installing inner-tubes.
  • All sizes are both DOT and ECE marked. ECE is the certification for the European market.
  • UTQG: Treadwear: 540. Traction B, represents the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement. Temperature: B, represents the tire's resistance to the generation of heat and its ability to dissipate heat.
  • Approximate mileage: 45,000. Note: this is an estimate, not a warranty.
  • Recommended PSI: 35 PSI. Low air pressure can cause the sidewall to crack or lead to tire failure.
  • Mounting/Balancing Recommendations: Static balance with the weights on the inside of the tire only in order to protect the soft whitewall. This also gives a more pleasing appearance. Recommend the use of lug centric balancing over hub centric. Due to the cosmetic whitewall insert these tires may take 3 to 5 ounces to balance, this is normal.
  • Made in the USA. The whitewalls, redlines and goldlines are molded into the tire, not added on after the tires are made.
  • Caution: When converting a bias to a radial, the 75 series will be closer to the 80 series bias size. The 70 series may rub in in some applications, especially with fender skirts.
  • All listed measurements are non-scientific and may change with different rim widths.
  • Never mix bias and radials on the same vehicle because the vehicle may steer uncontrollably.
  • Old rims can often be out-of-round and should be carefully checked before mounting.
  • Older rims designed for bias-ply tires may crack if used with modern radials, as the radial places more stress on the wheels.
