Does anyone have any recommendations for replacement brands for tires on a 1980 ? I see that there are the BF Goodrich tires as well as Cooper tires. Any others out there ?

thanks

I had Cooper Cobras on when the car was running. They were nothing special but the seemed to work just fine.

When I had my 2008 C6 I put Nitto Invo on them and was really happy with them.

My last set of 15’s were Firestone Indy 500’s. They were significantly better than the T/A’s. Their discontinuance was the major reason that I switched to 17” wheels as I did not want to go back to T/A’s.

15” tire choices are very limited these days.
COOPER COBRAS seem to be appearing everywhere..
The classic BFG RADIALS T/As are experiencing a brown lettering issue so lots of people have moved-on to other brands.
As much as I love the 15” rally wheel look on my ‘75 I moved to 17” wheels 15+ years ago.
This gave me a lot more choices for performance tires as I often Autocross the car.

Are you looking for any tire or more like original from GM? If you want the original type tires that came on the car new, Kelsey tire sells the original GoodYear Eagle GT tires. They are pricey, but I always run them and like the tires.
