Are there any antique tire collectors out there, or old tire collector clubs? There's lots of tire sign collectors but how about old tires themselves?

I'm kind of a closet tire collector. I like to have NOS tires in my tire display stands. Are you looking for antique tires?

I think corker tire has somewhat took the thrill out of old tire collecting. Heck of a vision on his part to buy up all those old molds.
Working in firestone factory half my life, I can't help but have a interest.

I have two original Mobil tires that came with a bunch of 1936 chevrolet parts. Not sure if they are road worthy but they would look great in a tire display stand. And an original 36 chevy spare tire and rim that supports my Pegasus cookie cutter sign

I have an original Flying A "Air Wing" Tubeless Tire from the late 1950s... And have been outbid on another... So, I must admit I have been afflicted with the "bug"!... (sorry about the dust bunnies, I sweep only once or twice a month! Oh, the life of a bachelor)

I'm trying to find a few tires to match some tire signs & clocks that I have. Such as "Vacuum Cup", "McCreary" & "Badger". I'm talking tires from the 20's and 30's. Also, I know that this is really a stretch, but would be great to find a "Zev" cord tire made by Union Rubber Co. that was in our local town in late 20's. Sam

This is what I did with my favorite clock & matching tire a few years ago. Thought I'd try some more, maybe, if I'm lucky!

I would say I probably have the only Rapson Tyre in the U.S,
it is from the early 20s.

Here is one of my favorites, a Goodyear Suburbanite snow tire with raised lettering in the wide whitewall.

Sam, I do have some of the skinny 20s-30s tires with unique tread designs. But I don't have the brands you mentioned above.

Don't want to give my age away, but I remember my dad using the "Suburbanite" tires on his vehicles. He never had whitewalls though!!
