vintage imports - even on cars you wouldn't normally associate with whitewall tires.

A few weeks ago a 356A Porsche coupe (57-58 vintage) passed me going the other way - looked like a fresh restoration in ivory with chrome wheels, wide whites, and a chrome luggage rack. Could have rolled right out of a '50's magazine ad - all it needed was the stylish 50's lady in the big floppy hat, tailored shirt-dress and heels next to it.

Hi Esty, that's my car on Ebay right now with the wide whites. If you're serious about a set and would like to know where to get them from... I got mine from mooneyes. I love white walls and I think they would look awesome on your car, maybe paint some early steelies a light tan/camel color to go with your color combination.

cyrus...thanks a ton for the inspiration...several of my classic pieces of american steel have wide whites on them and they all happen to be 2 tone cars as well...

today i put on a set of steel wheels with full wheel covers and immediately thought that it would work best with whitewalls...

then tonight i see your car...which i love BTW

i may have to buy a set of port-a-walls just to see...i can easily find tires but that's a bigger investment just to see what she would look like

good luck with your ebay auction

I have a buddy that does some pretty cool stuff with VWs. He made these wide whites. Sanded the letters and any marking off and painted the whites with some special paint designed to do just this. He has done multiple sets with good results. Here is one of his cars....

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
