Classic Tires

Does anyone know where I can find "old school" tires for my 75 jeep. I want to give it that retro look and use tires from back then. I remember there used to be tires called "tru-tracs", but I'm not sure. What I want are basically narrow off road tires with a tread pattern that looks like zig-zigs going around. Can anyone help? Please

Stay far away from the military tires unless you live in the desert, they become treacherous on damp roads and to be honest, they are not all that great off road. I drove everything from 1/4 tons to 5 tons with those POS's on there. My first bad experience was with a M151 and 1/4 ton trailer going around an entrance ramp on to Rt 81 in NY state, going less than 15mph and the trailer passed me on the left side just before it pulled the ass end of the mutt around. It was drizzling out and 70F. When we stopped off the berm there were 4 more of the fist team jeeps in the same condition. I hopped up and down and cheered when the blazers, hummers and hemmets started arriving with REAL tires on them. They may be OK for show or 'correctness' of a collectors vehicle but I would not use them on the street.
Any other ex-mil ever tap the brakes on a 2 1/2 ton and have them lock up at hiway speeds then start skidding. Not a good feeling.
Not to mention the 'thump thump thump' till they warm up and the flat spots go away..

i love my NDT's and i love the thumping and whirring, i have to agree they suck on wet roads and in mud, but over logs and sand and small rocks they are great, plus they leave the great tracks and look AWESOME, i def wouldn't use them on my DD though.

also here they will knoe what came stock etc. if you ask in the restoration or just the OT
