Hello again,
Just wondering,the corker Firestone Deluxe
Reproduction tyres come out in 4.00 18 as well
As 4.50 18....
Back in the 40's were these sizes both available..
Or just one...
If only one option, would it be closer to the
400 or 4.50 ...
Checking old photos,most look like the slightly
Chunkier/ wider 4.50 ....
Any ideas

I can't help with the bulk of your inquiry but I do know those Coker tires are made from the factory dies which Coker purchased from Firestone.

They are great tyres... Friends and me have been running
These in 16 & 18's for years...
If they are from the originals, its most probable
Both 4.00 & 4.50 18 's were available back then too....
