can on the gm cars.

Original rims, on 3 60's cars I owned, all of them originally bias ply, upgraded to radials, and driven for 10's of thousands of miles.

The cars were
64 Catalina
68 Catalina
67 Camaro

Just make sure the bead is clean and rust free.

Absolutely. Being steel, they are actually able to withstand more punishment than a lot of modern alloy rims. Although the alloys save a huge amount of weight, they are more brittle than steel, and therefore more likely to crack.

I have been running radial tires on stock '66 Ford steel rims since 1969. Never had a problem of any kind.

Sears was the first major company to sell (Michelin) radials in this country and they didn't start that until about 1968. Before that no one in this country had ever heard of a radial tire.
