white wall tires for w108

Need a set of narrow stripe white walls for my W108. Have checked old posts here and tyre rack is recommended for the appropriate Michelin, Bridgestone, etc.

However just called tirerack and they no longer stock a white wall in 205-70-14, indeed the say michelin and bridgestone no longer make white walls.

Help!

There is a well known company which I think is in Tennessee, called Coker Tire. Google the name. I didn't check it myself, but that is where I would look.

Good Luck!

A co-forumer shared the "new look" for his 123 coupe --- using Fisk whitewall tires.

I purchased my new tires from Tire Rack. I put Kumho Solus KR21 tires on my 280SEL about a year ago. I really like them. good wet traction and good in the snow. Not too loud. They come in a white stripe in the 205/75/14 size which I use.
