Firestone Beaded Edge Universal Tyre 27x3.85 (3.85x20)

Firestone Beaded Edge Universal Tyre 27x3.85 (3.85x20)

Firestone is one of America’s oldest tyre manufacturers, producing tyres for the pioneers of US car design. From the earliest smooth pneumatic tyres, through the development of tread patterns and new construction methods, Firestone has grown into a company producing a huge variety of tyres. Its involvement in motorsport is legendary, with 60 wins of the Indianapolis 500 to its name. It also still produces many of its most iconic tyres from many eras of motoring.

Firestone’s beaded-edge motorcycle tyre is an exact replica of Firestone’s bike tyre from the early days of motorcycling. Beaded-edge tyres were popular from before the first World War, and continued into the 1930s, when they were replaced by more modern wired-on tyres. 

This 'beaded-edge' tyre requires a specific wheel design and high tyre pressures. Fitting these tyres is unlike modern types, so please contact us for advice if you are unfamiliar with this type of tyre.

This 27x3.85 Firestone Beaded Edge Universal Motorcycle tyre is a suitable fitment for several early American motorcycles.
