Tires

The 1960 Cadillac had the same choices as in 1959. Cadillac had two sizes offered. The Series 62, DeVille and the Fleetwood 60 lines were fitted with 8.00 x 15 bias tires. While the Eldorado and the Series 75 models came standard with 8.20 x 15 bias tires.  The 8.00 x15 bias tire could have been upgraded on the cars where this size was standard for $65.00 to the 8.20 x 15 size. The manufacturers of the tires were US Royal, Goodrich, and Firestone. The correct whitewall width is between 2 1/4″ to 2 3/4″. Although whitewalls were a $57.00 option.

The white sidewall option was code W and included in other group option packages such as Group A and B.
