About Our Best Whitewall Motorcycle Tires

Customize Your Look With Whitewall Motorcycle Tires

Are you a modifier, someone who likes to add a little here, trim a little there and swap out pieces everywhere? You’re not alone. There are millions more just like you who are always tweaking their bike’s looks, performance or both. In fact, there are enough of you out there to bring back a style that went the way of the dodo in the mid-20the century, the whitewall tire.

It’s not just for cars either; there are plenty of motorcycle enthusiasts who like the look. Whether you prefer to ride in style on a cruiser, zip around town on a scooter, or travel somewhere in between those classes, whitewall tires can add a little elegance to your ride.

A Little History

Once the mainstay of U.S. luxury cars, whitewalls were first produced in 1914 and began slowly gaining in popularity through the 1930s. Whitewalls for motorcycles followed much the same course as those for cars. The look became more widespread in the later ‘30s when Ford began offering them as an option. They continued to gain in popularity through the 1950s but were not widely available during World War II or the Korean War due to rubber shortages.

The appeal of whitewall tires began declining in the 1960s when car designs began obscuring them. By the early 80s, they were available only through a few tire companies. They never quite went extinct due to their popularity with the classic car and motorcycle crowds, and are now enjoying a revival, with several manufacturers offering versions.
