My 21k mile MODTOP survivor came with T72 E70x14 Firestone wide oval white streaks
I'm thinking The fiberglass are the Goodyears?
First link you can see the never used original spare, 2nd link is window sticker showing T72.
I'll look into T74 more, i have a NOS set(4)of Goodyears, but i think they say polyglass on them? The white stripe would be the thin one like my spare.(same size as RED stripe)

iagree
for '69 a-body 70 series tires
polyester cord = Firestone
fiberglass-belted = Goodyear

I don't think Firestone had a fiberglass 60 or 70 series tire available as OE for any manufacturer until the '70 model year

the 70 series tires had a stripe from 5/16" to 3/8"

Dave, are these the same as yours?

it is the same tire for 1969,
is that spare from a '70 Windsor built 340 car?

AY = manufacturing date = 20th week of 1970 (mid-May)
NL = manufacturing plant = Toronto Goodyear plant

here is the website of the manufacturer of reproduction Goodyear tires: KELSEY TIRE up

http://www.kelseytire.com/pages/preformancetires2.html

it looks like F70-14s & G70-14s are available in "white streak", but they show RWL & "red streak" ONLY for E70-14, sounds like it's worth a call callme

My '69 Swinger 340 window sticker shows T74 E70x14 WSW tires,and came with
E70x14 Firestone Suprbelt red stripe bias belted polyester cord tires with fiberglass belts. The Firestone Wide Ovals that came out in '67 would squirm them- selves into oblivion in 10,000 miles or less,(usually less). My Suprbelts were pretty much used up in 40,000.

if I understand correctly,

window sticker shows T74 E70-14 WSW "white streak" fiberglass belted tires
but had a set of T75 E70-14 RSW "red streak" fiberglass belted tires (& these were Firestone SUP-R-BELT)

did you order the car or was it on a dealer's lot?
how many miles when you got it?
when did you get the Swinger?
were all 5 the same tire?

No. No switch in 69. My 69 Dart had Firestone E70-14 Redlines.

To answer your questions:(1) Correct, Tires were shown as T74 (all five), but were red stripe, which is what I ordered. (2) Mileage 6 IIRC. (3) I took delivery on 1/27/69 (after a 9 week wait). (4) Yes. Couple of other things
Dealers '69 Data Book under tires, notation"E", E70 in red or white. Fiberglass belted tires optional at extra cost. $71.80. The Broadcast sheet for my M code car shows tires as T73

My M Code is also code T73 so what is correct for the T73 code?

T73 is the STANDARD 1969 Dart GTS tire: E70-14 "red streak" polyester cord
most probably a Firestone Wide Oval Deluxe Champion

this is the tire that only managed ~10,000 miles before they were junk as "carteravs" tells in his story. up

scope I have notes that this E70-14 tire is from a Dart, but I don't know what year blush

Is it possible that my build sheet shows T74 but came with red streak tires being an M-code?

it looks like for 1969:
Barracuda offered both the T74 E70-14 "white streak" fiberglass-belted & T75 E70-14 "red streak" fiberglass-belted tires

Dart offered only the T74 E70-14 "white streak" fiberglass-belted tire

shruggy

anyone have anything that shows T75 available on Dart, maybe late in the year??

"carteravs" did your Swinger come from a stand alone Dodge dealership or a Chrysler/Plymouth/Dodge dealer
