I've got Coker Classic radials with 3" wide whitewall on my Cord 812 Beverly and I like the look and feel. I put these on last year as they were recommended by a friend that owns a large tire business in the DC metro area, and I wanted radials for the road feel while driving. I've been happy so far.
I also have Diamondback radials with 3.5" wide whitewalls on my Glen Pray Auburn Speedster, and they look great and drive superb as well. These came with the car, so I didn't have anything to do with picking them, but the 3.5" wide whitewall I think is striking. Some photos.

I had the Coker Radials on my Westchester. I had one totally disintegrate at 75 mph near Toledo. Coker just said I needed to replace the tubes every two years. I changed the tubes. Had a rear tire go flat on a show field and the a second tire blew again at 75 mph. All within a year. Coker would not stand behind the tires. I threw the remaining tire away and will not put a Coker back on my cars.

Just my thoughts.

Been where Jim was via his Coker radials - flat on way home from ACD Festival with tread separating from sidewall. Multiple flats over time of which a few were my fault via hidden labels in casings and as to others I thought the tire casing pattern inside was too aggressive and was eating tubes. And two that had to be replaced for being near square. I now have diamondbacks on car - a Toyo with a whitewall applied - super nice. They now also have a "Auburn" brand tire at Diamonback, but have not heard from anyone who has really driven a distance/time.

Jim did not tell you about his torn up front fender.

I get this photo out every now and then (this was right after the part about standing there to see if we were going to have a fire or not too).
