DUKW tires have a higher ply than the Goat tires, but originally were made to be deflated to 15 psi for going over sand beaches, then pumped up from the cab back to 50 psi for highway use. I have no idea what the specs are for the Coker tires

Im aware. The Goat tires are 6 ply but those available arent usually very good with dry rot. I currently have 10 extras all questionable. Thats why I haul two around with me!!

A note about Goodyear Goat tires, they are steel-belted bias ply tires.

Unlike just about any other tire out there.

Coker Tires in Chattanooga, TN sells DUKW/Goat tires, check with them to see if they can recommend something. Didn't the Goat have tubeless tires? if so, you may be looking for a unicorn!
Yup, the Goat tires are tubeless.....that's how I run mine, I know some guys run tubes tho. bet they will chime in on here eventually. (Maybe the tubes help them float better)?

Problem is getting my nos tires expanded enough to seal on the rim. Even though they are new the sidewalls are collapsed down from being stacked for decades. Maybe after I run them for a while they will resume their former shape and I could go back tubeless

Same thing happened when they mounted my new tires. They left them out in the warm sun with a tube inside (not mounted) and they came back into shape so they would seal. They have been holding air fine since mounted and tubeless.
