I am going to upgrade to radial tires on my 58'Belvedere and have a question for you all.Looking in the Coker Tire catalog,I read a small paragraph stating that when going from biasplys to radial plys on a car not originally equipped with radial tires,the rims may be prone to cracking from the so-called extra load put upon them.I know alot of you out there have radials.Has anyone experienced problems with O.E.M. rim strength?Are the originals up to the task?Am I concerned over nothing??
