Does anyone know what brand of tire Ford used in 1957? I need tires for my hardtop and want it to be correct. I am buying 7.50-14in but don't know if they used BFG or Firestone. Thanks!

Ford used both brands, but the majority were Firestone.

If Firestone was an option I'd go with that. In my opinion they are the best looking WWW tire on the market. I just put a set on my wagon and love how they look.

Thanks. Sorry about the upside down pic. Not sure why they do that. You will be happy with the Firestones.

Charlie I could have saved you a lot of trouble if Marlon had have posted the question before your project traction. All you need is some Firestone and it'll stick so good that it will hang upside down.

Hey bigwindow, I ordered the tires this evening for my 57. I could only find the firestone 14in tires with a 2.25 whitewall. I run a 2.75 firestone whitewall on all my other cars with 15in rims. About six months ago I put 7.10 15 firestone tires on my 56 sunliner and it made the car look great!!!! I drove it to Austin last weekend from Houston and it was a pleasure to drive! I like my cars how they came from the factory. Though I am guilty of lowering them and or making a traditional fifties custom. But they are all y-block powered and ALL FORD!!!

Thanks Paul. I agree with you 100% Marlon. I like to keep stock or slight custom appearance. Defiantly lower them too. My car has Aerostar coils with Versailles spindles and 2" blocks in the back. I think I'm going to go 3" blocks as the back is a little too high for my taste. Be sure to post some pics of your car with the new tires.
