Hello,

I have worked with many of you here.  My name is Rusty Small and I can help with any of the Goodyear reproduction tires.  

Currently, I am going to the Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race, Stanton, MI, September 16 and 17 and I will attend MCACN in November.

Also, I found out this weekend that the performance series of tires will be increasing in cost by $10/tire on 11/1.  This is the first increase for these tires since 2011.  

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.  My cell is 816-654-3400.

Thanks

Rusty

Rusty:

I have a question that comes up with tires in general. I have a set of the reproduction Goodyear Polyglas raised white letter tires E-60 15 that I have on my 1971 Javelin AMX. I purchased them 5 years ago and have been running them on the roads during the summer when it's not raining. I have been doing around 500 miles per year.
So the issue of age came up. I think the tire manufactures like you to replace tires in the 5-10 year range, probably closer to 5 so they can sell more tires. What is the thought on the reproduction Goodyears for a use like mine described above? I have a protectant on them and when the car is not on the road, it's inside a garage with the door down. No sunlight on them.

Thanks

Steve

One of my friends asked me that very question today.  UV is one of the biggest enemies of rubber and most of ours stay tucked in the garage.  Personally, it has a lot to do with that and heat cycles.  If you are going to be rolling down to eat ice cream or if you are going 120 miles to the regional meet.  If you turn a corner and the tires are squalling when you turn a  corner, I would say its time.  The hardness of the tires is going to effect the safety.

In a word, I am not going to give you a year, but you need to look at what you are going to do with it.  May pops are not what we want to ride on!!

My cell is 816-654-3400 if you want to speak with me about it.

Rusty:

What kind of availability can we expect in the future on having the reproduction Goodyear Polyglas E-60-15 tires? In other words if the demand is still there from the guys like my that want the original look and the Pro Stock Drag guys that would be burning them up at the drags, will those tires still be around in 5 years? This may be a hard question to answer, but should I look at getting a set and storing them for when the age of the ones I have are to the point when they should be replaced? Or will a set that has been sitting for 5 years not be good for more than another 5 years because of their age?

I just picked up a set of F-70-14 RWL Goodyear Polyglas rubber doughnuts from Rusty last weekend at the Pure Stock Drags in Stanton Michigan.

No2Joe did as well (E-60-15) variant for his 70 AMX and many others did too. It was rubber doughnut city!

Just an FYI:

For those who plan on attending the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals this November (MCACN) in Rosemont IL. , Rusty said to me he can deliver them there as well. 

You will search long and hard, for a more trustworthy and cooler soul !

Thanks Rich!!

To answer the question, the tires once put in the catalog will always remain. Also, the number of tires is closely watched and the batch numbers are so that the tires should be fairly fresh. The tires that were delivered to Rich came off the truck on Wednesday morning and I loaded them my trailer Wednesday afternoon. Most tires are 6 months old or less.

Hey Peterson !  How about some pics !    He he he he he 

That's a good point Ross. Rusty's proactive communication is second to none! I know that once I decide to make a purchase with him, it's going to be hassle free. 

I wish all vendors had Rusty's communication attitude ! When I do contact him, it's something I can take off my mind, not add to my future followup list...

Might be a silly question but it never hurts to ask.

Do you offer both Goodyear Polyglas GT's and just regular Goodyear Polyglas?

Reason I ask is that I have a pair of D70-14 Polyglas RWL tires (non GT's) and wouldn't mind another pair to complete the set, but I can't seem to find non-GT Polyglas' listed anywhere. Neither can I find D70's.

Do you offer D70-14 RWL Polyglas tires?

Polyglas GT's were 60 series tires. 

Unfortunately, the D70-14 is not being reproduced.  The smallest Polyglas size is the E70-14.

I see that there are now Firestone Wide Oval radials that look just like the original bias ply tires from the late sixties and early seventies.   Are there going to be Goodyear Polyglas radials with raised white letters and redlines coming soon?

Kelsey has always prided himself on producing the most accurate reproduction available. To that end, he is not going to produce something that never was. He is producing vintage era radials from the 70's and 80's in 15" sizes.

Give a call if you have questions. 816-654-3400.

I have Kelsey built Goodyear Polyglas on almost every AMC I own and have put a lot of miles on them....they ride great and I have never had an issue.  As far as performance (traction), a very high percentage of the cars at the Pure Stock Drags are running!!!  They are not your Grandfathers belted tires....original molds, but modern rubber and DOT approved.......

I was just curious. I always thought the Goodyear Polyglas design was the best looking and have had them on several cars I have owned. Also they were factory installed on many AMC's. It seemed like a interesting choice to be able to have the best of both worlds.

I agree. The recently released Firestone Wide Oval radials seem to have the best qualities of the original appearance and the ride and handling improvements that radials provide.
I'd love to have Goodyear Polyglas radials for my AMX but for now I'm making do with Diamond Back Michelins with redlines which are very good.
I'm surprised about Ross's statement regarding the ride (and handling ??)of the new Polyglas tires.
My experience with the original Polyglas on my AMX was that they were fair at best and terrible in the rain. When I went to my first set of Good Year radials, back in the 70's, the improvement in ride and handling was enormous. Later switching over to Michelin X radials, FR70 x14, from the Good Year radials was an equally dramatic improvement.
With all these tires costing in the $1000. or so range for a set of 4 it get's expensive to begin to experiment with different tires.

I love the OEM look of the Good Year Polyglas and if they're as decent as Ross says then I'll likely put them on my 67 Ambasaador DPL when it's out of the body work stage. Otherwise it will probably be the BFG or Diamond Back radials with the thin white stripe in either the 205 or 215 x14 size.

George....all, I just put a set (F70-14) on the "worst case scenario" as the 74 Matador X...just considering the weight is 1000 lbs +/- more then a 2 seater AMX.  It drives better then the Goodyear Eagle ST's (215/70-14)that were on it before. A very good friend has them on his Superbird....F70-14's too, and he is impressed with traction and handling and that thing is a tank!!!!, it has to be heavier then the Matador.  I personally balanced them on my 25 year old Snap On balancer, they took very little weight and the threads were smooth and straight.  The car drives very smooth, I drove to Hershey and back in October last year (450 mile round trip), no complaints.  Rusty supplied me with this set and he was great in communication and delivery.   I have driven my one 69 AMX that still wears it's original Polyglas Red lines and it is rough and the compound is hard......but it is a survivor, George is very familiar with this car (Lee's Beale Street Blue car).  Are they a radial NO, but they are 10 times better then the original 1968-1970's version as built by Goodyear.

I guess that puts these into serious consideration when the time comes to replace the tires on the DPL. OEM stock size was 7.75X14. Optional upgrade size was 8.25 X 14. I guess that would translate to either a F or G 70 x 14. I'll probably go with the "G's.
The Good Years would be my first choice as far as the OEM appearance goes. If they ride and drive as well as Ross relates then I'll likely go that route. I'll need to price them out through Rusty when the time draws nearer.

Just a note about some of the events I am going to soon.
The Supercar Reunion is a gathering of Chevy dealer supercars that attend for a 1 day drag race/ 1 day show. The dealer names of Yenko, Berger, Nickey, Fred Gibb, Dana..... special prepped cars by Dick Harrell all are in attendance. Some other stuff will be showing up as well.
The Ames All Pontiac Tri Power Nationals at Summit Raceway Park in Norwalk, OH. It is my understanding that it is the largest all Pontiac event in the country. Over 400 race cars and an incredible number of show cars.
The Mopar Nats... It is still one of the biggest events in the country for the Pentastar! Drag racing and show cars... once again, does it get any better.
If you are wanting me to bring Goodyear reproductions to the events to save money in shipping, I need to personally hear from you. Because it may have been mentioned in passing does not mean that I have it in the trailer. That being said, my cell is 816-654-3400.
Thanks and have a great weekend!!!

In a word, I am not going to give you a year, but you need to look at what you are going to do with it.  May pops are not what we want to ride on!!

Well, I guess the replacement Goodyear Custom Power Cushion Polyglas D78-14's I have, originally put on my car in 1978, and have only 1300 miles on them, are getting long in the tooth! The tread looks like new, some nubs still visible, sidewalls are nice, and no heat checking or cracking. They did spend the next 37 years in a garage after the owner passed, so they did not see light until 2 years ago. I removed them from the original wheels, cleaned up the rims, as they had slight rust on the bead area, and I re-installed them with inner tubes, for safety, to drive to shows when installed.They are currently put away for show only, and modern radials are on the car as a driver, just wanted to see reactions.

Rusty, what is the usual time frame from order until shipping? I want some new polyglas for my 70 AMX next summer but want to wait if possible as they won't be used all winter anyways.

Typically about a week if the tires are in stock.  If the tires are in backorder, we are looking at a month roughly.  March is when things start to break loose.  Call when your ready.  My cell is 816-654-3400

Tony,

I think you will be impressed how the tires do ride and act.  Pressure the tires to the door sticker and set your alignment to the original specs.  Thank you for your purchase!!
