  • Buying tires lead to Henry J owner
  • Yesterday when I went to PU the tires that I bought on Craigslist, I was treated to seeing 2 Henry J's and a Kaiser Darrin. Being that my father had worked for Kaiser-Frazer I am familiar with those but I was not aware of the Darrin.
    The Darrin was Kaiser's attempt to build a sports car to compete with the European inports just as GM and Ford were doing with then Corvette and the T-bird. The Darrin has a fiberglass body and the doors slide on tracks into the front fenders. Only 435 Darrins were built.

  • "...can I keep them, Ma, they followed me home..." BTW, how are those hat rims? If okay, are you going to keep them or sell them?

  • Hi Tim,
    I'm waiting for a call from tire company when they get them dismounted and mounted on my new 6 loop rims with new tubes. I'll let you know with pics to your e-mail ASAP.

  • Hey John, which tire company do you use, and how much do they charge per dismount/mount if you don't mind my asking?

    Need to switch a good tire to a PA rim for the 961

  • Hi Andy,
    I have been using Shrader Tire, 3835 Morgan Road, Ypsilanti. I just picked up the 2 tires that I bought Saturday. They drained the chloride, dismounted the tires, disposed of the chloride and the old tubes, mounted the tires on my 6 loop rims with my new tubes. Combined labor, $146.31.
    They also have service trucks for both farm and semi trucks. I don't know how far out that they will go. 734-434-9300
