“What tires should I run on my Hot Rod” seems to be asked time and time again. The real answer is any type of tire that you like. But if you are trying to emulate a certain time period in hot rodding history, there are specific styles that were used during particular time periods.

Matt from Iron Trap Garage uses a few of the projects in the Irn Trap Garage to explain the different looks and styles that were common.

Editor’s Note: This is not the definitive guideline of what tires you should run, but more of a discussion on the subject.
