My 71 Charger R/T has the no cost optional down grade in tire size to G78x14. I think the code it T46 but the build sheet in not in front of my right now.
I alsway thought it was unusual to go from F70 to the smaller G78.

In reality it's a bigger tire since they went up to G from F. The 78 series to 70 series in those two sizes are close.

Now you can't tease us with that partial picture!!! Let's see that bad boy.

1971 Charger R/T:
T93 G70-14 w/RWL STD
T46 G78-14 "twin white stripe" OPTIONAL n/c (taller but less tread than the G70-14)
U86 G60-15 w/RWL OPTIONAL $63.10

& the road wheels w/G78-14 is the "more adult" look - if that's possible on a "PLUM CRAZY" '71 b-body.

Are they reproducing the G78 twin white wall tires? I've been looking but haven't found them.
