Pur Sang builds many types of vintage cars, focusing primarily on 1920s and 1930s open wheel race cars. The company recently selected Excelsior Comp H tires as the recommended tire for all Pur Sang T-Series builds (including T13, T35B, T35T, T37A, T43, T51 and T55)-owned by the likes of Jay Leno and many other collectors.

This exclusive agreement is based on the quality, authenticity and service associated with the Excelsior brand and its parent company, Coker Group. While Pur Sang has a U.S. presence, many of its customers and clients are based in other parts of the world, and the same can be said for Coker Group, as it’s enormous network of distributors offers tires to car enthusiasts around the world, according to the Coker Group.

Excelsior Comp H tires feature a European style triple stud tread pattern, and they are available in a wide range of sizes to fit rim diameters from 18 to 21 inches. Excelsior is the only full line of vintage-style racing tires to feature DOT and ECE approval, according to the Coker Group. The tires feature an H-speed rating (130 mph) and eligibility in both FIA and VSCC racing organizations.

Original fitments, such as 4.50-19, are included in the Excelsior tire product line but many racing enthusiasts increase sizing to enhance performance. Excelsior tires are available in many sizes to provide options for all types of street and race applications.

Pur Sang specializes in authentic details to offer modern day recreations of timeless classics Each vehicle is custom-built.

“We’re proud to be working closely with such an esteemed group of folks at Pur Sang,” said Coker Group President Wade Kawasaki. “The workmanship that goes into these cars is outstanding, and we’re thrilled to be the exclusive tire supplier for a company that takes pride in every nut and bolt that goes into a build.”
