    Hi John, they look good. I look forward to some more feedback once you get a chance to drive on them for a little while.

    I finally got out to drive on the Universal redlines a lot more. Yesterday, I drove about 160 miles on them and in feel that they are a fine tire for those wanting the original size. While you won't win an autocross with then, they are very stable and handle well.....even with a little extra speed thru some exit and entrance ramps from the intersate. I noticed that there were two other TR6's with them at the Brits at Peddlers Village show yesterday...just north of Philly.

    I was considering the Diamondback tires.......but unless you buy the 185/15 Vredesteins which they sell for $249 per tire........ their other tires are not the original size and in a concours event where originality is the rule, one will lose points by not having the correct tire size. At least that is what I understand per the AACA rules.

    Love the factory issued Redline look on TR6 2003 upgraded Michelin 185R15 with Coker Classics @time believe 205R78-15 other than casting marks on face of tire, appearance of tire in wheel well very close to factory issued 185's a little wider/slightly taller with ride & handling improvement, did have some issues with uneven wear even though balanced/aligned yearly. 2008 saw Diamondback Redlines 205/70/15 on a TR6 upgraded to set of those, Yokohama was the brand they shipped at the time, know someone that bought several months ago Cooper was the brand, Firestone preceded the Yokohama's.

    Other than more rubber on the road with wider width, tires simply look right in wheel well (185's I could slide 3 fingers horizontally between top of tire & [email protected] fingers @rear*Diamondbacks 2 fingers front & rear) absolutely no rubbing on twisties, autoX, speed bumps, improvement in ride/handling. Speedo reads approx 4-5 mph lower with 205/70/15

    Feature Diamondback does that's extra nice they buff all the lettering & casting markings off the face of tire that Redline is vulcanized to which really give an outstanding clean appearance, getting my TR6 another set while the getting is good!

    I know I'm a little late to the party but I installed the Universal redlines on my '74 back in early August and have been very happy with the looks and ride. They feel good on the back country roads and at highway speeds. They also balanced very easily and seem to be much quieter than the Goodyear Eagle GT+4 I replaced.

    That's a copy of the Dunlop SP Sport tread :dry: Don't have a face view but it's pretty much identical:

    I just purchased a set of the Universal redline radials. Took them for a quick ride yesterday before Irene came to town. I did not get free of traffic to test them in some twisty turns, but they are definitely better than the old Michelin X's that came on my car. After the weather passes I get out for a longer ride.

    Here are some pictures.

    Robert;

    Yes. That is the tire that is recommended on Diamondback's site.

    Period 185-15s are getting very scarce. Dunlop SP Sport is still available in H speed rating @ $353/tire. I've got a set in storage I'll be fitting to wires someday.
    How long is someday? Tires have a 'shelf life' and most shops will not install them if they are past their 'best before' date.
