I got a question...What are you guys running for tires on front of your street / strip Gassers?
Yes, for now Hurst Tire is gone. Steve and Cody lost their lease, and have not found a new building. Cody has gone to work at a local rod shop, and Steve still wants to bring the company back, but has no building yet. I sincerely hope they do come back, as they made a good looking tire! I especially love their front runner tires! Not cheap, as they are made on new Hankook casings, and then recapped to look like old bias, but they were perfect looking!I've got Hoosier Drag Radials on the back of my 50 Chevy and road use is more important than period correct look. Hey Vall, off subject a little but there's a rumor flying around that Hurst Tire is going away. Hope it's not true, they've got great looking products!
I run these on the front of mine,but I'm currently running a 135-15,going to jump up to a 155 or 165 to fill the wheel opening a bit better,and feel a little more stable at 105mph through the traps.Firestone F-560
Yeah, the internet is a great tool, but I see it misused so often for the purpose of destroying a business. It's always possible for someone to have a problem with anything man made, but Hurst has always been a great product, and stuck behind what they built. Most the bashing I've seen started out with someone telling their side of the story the way they wanted everyone to hear it. We never did get the real history behind the few complaints, and (in true internet fashion) most of the comments after the fact were by people who had never owned a pair of Hurst tires.Vall,
I hope Steve can find a new building soon,as they made some really cool looking tires.I know it had become "fashionable" for every sheep on the Internet to bash them lately,and as usual,once somebody has a bad comment about a shop or business,it spreads like wild fire on the forums,whether justified or not.
I know they put a lot of blood and sweat into that business,and I would really hate to see them drop out of the scene.
