Yes, whitewall tires! That was the correct tire for Wagoneers back then. Examples -restored Wagoneers, up to $90k.

I couldn't get the dealer to drop his price but I negotiated his asking price to include four new mud & snow tires already on Jeep rims that I saw there. They were new car take-offs from a customer who had huge oversize tires fitted to a new Wagoneer.

I remember now that that rig ate tires. I wore out those shown, then I recall I wore out the next set in 17k miles. Maybe it was my driving style on the windy mountain roads. That thing would accelerate out of a corner like a sports car.
