The old ones do look similar, and the bias claws had "more agressive" sidewalls vs. the radials. The new claw sidewalls are clearly different.

But judging by the people in the pictures, I would think it's probably from the mid 90s.

But alas I don't give a crap, back to posting old, cool pics

M38 loaded up in LA for a cross country trip to the east coast. Notice the vintage Camaro and El Camino in the background. Picture from the mid 1980s


Fueling up somewhere in the west. Chevy 327 with 5.38 gears and the stock 10 gallon tank under the drivers seat didnít give very good range.


When tube bumpers were all the rage.

So, what is it that you are asking me that I am sure of?
He was showing you that in his opinion that was not a baja claw and for that reason it could be vintage.

well no shit its not a baja claw, its a baja belted HP, a vintage tire that was popular in that timeframe that the sidewall has a very very similar fucking pattern as the baja claw.
