5.00-16 is the right size.

Dear 1450,
I dont remember Firestone getting back into tires so I gotta ask: Is that a Coker off-road reproduction?

I had good luck but others didnt,

I have a Coker 500-16 repop of the old Beck-Arnley tire on my shovel chopper.It has worked just fine for me.I suspect the "off road" business is to avoid entanglement with the federal gummint.

John,

I don't know about the other Coker tires but the Beck style tire is DOT approved and I have had no problems with them so far in over 8,000 miles.

From Google-http://store.cokertire.com/popular-tire ... cycle.html

I have used 2 sets on my 56 with good results.
