I noticed the Cooper Cobras since I bought a set last fall. I shopped around a lot. BF Goodrich Radial T/A had been my first choice. Then I read a bunch a blogs about the white lettering being thin and browning after a few washes. An insider said this was due in part to old core molds that had not been replaced.
I went with 215 70 15 on 15" x 7" Rally II rims on the advice of my shop. I would have picked a wider profile, but he talked me out of it. No pic yet, the car and wheels are still covered up in the garage.

I like to see them, I was looking at the Coker Firestone’s wide oval GR7014 but was not cheap! I like the Ta’s that 245 gives a wider look

The set I replaced were 215/70 15 Redline radials that finally dry rotted. I bought a set of 4 in 1998 for $436! Unfortunately that distibutor, Antique Automotive in Topeka, went out of business awhile ago.
