Kinda general wheel question

Ok hopefully its cool to group these two together but I want to run radials on both a 40 pontiac deluxe 6 and a 48 plymouth special deluxe. I want to run radials on the stock rims can i do that or will there be an issue. I have heard some rumors that i cant run radials on the pontiac something about the rim buckling anyway i thought id ask.

Can't imagine that radials would cause a wheel problem, but you are going to run into some alignment issues.

An Old School frame & alignment shop can. The average tire & alignment shop can't & wont.

you'll also need to seal your stock rims with something like a spray-on
bed-liner material, just the middle part otherwise they leak a round the rivets. or you can run radial inner tubes, I use them with my old aluminium mags and have for about 10 yrs now.

The stock wheels were designed for tubes, so running a tubeless radial might not hold air, that's my opinion, somebody correct me if I'm wrong please, I can take it. If the stock wheels don't cut it try thus place, I've been thinking of these guys for my wheels on the `31.
