While early tires were made of white gum rubber they were not truly " white walls" Black carbon was added to give traction and endurance.
What company invented the "white wall" tire. They still make them today. Not reproductions.

Nope not them either.
Here's a hint. They employ a very different way of mounting tires.

Nope, nope and nope! American company, been around along time. They have always made high end tires. You won't find them at just any old tire store. As I explained in the origional question I'm not talking about all white gum rubber tires. I am talking about a true white wall.
